Within its strategy of promoting work opportunities, The Zubair Corporation continues to provide talented Omani youth with training programmes and professional development opportunities, aimed at drawing qualified Omanis towards the private sector.

Within this framework, the Corporation has participated in several Career Exhibitions held by higher education institutions over the past few years, aiming to support graduates by providing them with job opportunities that perfectly match their chosen specialties and talent.

“We can proudly say that Zubair Corporation and its affiliates are an attractive work environment for young Omanis seeking career opportunities in various fields and specialisations. The company provides such training programmes to incubate and nurture graduates’ skills and prepares them for further career growth,” said Mr C S Badrinath, CEO of The Zubair Corporation .

He added, “The training programmes and development plans further motivate qualified youth into joining the Corporation and its affiliates. Omani employees are only satisfied with their career track if it offers them a clearly defined future. As a result, employees’ sense of stability motivates them into working harder and be more productive; which in turn benefits both themselves and the Corporation.”

“The Corporation recently launched competency management programme. It will take into consideration all HR practices that concern employees, using latest technologies. The programme provides employees with access to a system wherein they can effectively interact with whatever practices or procedures they require at work,” he concluded.

With regards to investing in Omani talent as part of The Zubair Corporation’s employment plans, Abaas Al Humaid, said, Chief Strategy Officer, “We strongly believe in the importance of supporting the Omani youth and providing them with an opportunity to join the private sector. We work in accordance to a clear-cut strategy with respect to Omanisation and we recently succeeded in attracting a number of young Omanis by providing them with job opportunities that fulfil their ambitions. As a result, we are proud to say that we have a number of enthusiastic Omanis working in several different industrial sectors within the Corporation which, no doubt, adds to the Omanisation ratio within the private sector as a whole. We also believe that such initiatives will raise the awareness among Omanis of the importance of contributing to the development of the Sultanate through joining the private sector workforce. Our investment in the talented Omani youth will definitely promote the benefits of working within the private sector and supports Omanis to lead a better future and a more productive life.”

Thuraiya Al Riyami, Deputy Manager- Employee Relations in the HR Department, said, “The Zubair Corporation saves no efforts to attract the national workforce by offering competitive incentives for its employees. Furthermore, we at the Corporation, strongly believe that Omani women are as much a fundamental base to our success as Omani men, and provide employees of both genders with all the training courses necessary to improve their skills and ensure their strong presence in the field and involvement with others.”

Yahya Bin Darwish Al Balushi, Deputy General Manager of Government Relations in the Real Estate and Hospitality Department, highlighted the necessity of realising the importance of working in the Sultanate’s private sector. “Thanks to the competitive advantages companies within the private sector offer, an increasing number of young Omanis are looking for jobs there. Ever since I began working here at the Zubair Corporation, I have received a lot of support from my seniors and the extensive training programs have helped me further develop my work skills. I would like to encourage all Omani youth to continue working hard and be sincere in their jobs; working hard within the private sector will enable us to become the leaders and investors of our country’s future driving in turn driving forward its economy power,” he said.
