Badar al Hashmi, chief audit executive, was part of the first batch of graduates while Sultan al Wahaibi, chief business & wholesale officer will participate in the upcoming session as a representative of the company’s growing list of Omani talents.
Ian Dench, chief executive officer, said, “This is wonderful news and we are proud to be a part of a great public sector programme developing future leaders by the Omani government, to support professionals in the private sector. We congratulate Badar on graduating from the programme and wish Sultan the very best.”
With an Omanisation rate above 90 per cent, Ooredoo continues to develop Omani talent by offering them opportunities to grow within the company. Ooredoo has dedicated considerable resources to the recruitment and retention of highly talented Omani employees to help fulfil their professional aspirations and contribute to the economic growth of the sultanate.
Launched in 2015 by the Public Private Partnership Taskforce (Sharaka) and the Institute of Capability Development of Diwan of Royal Court, the National CEO Program has been designed to deliver the next generation of leaders to the sultanate’s private sector.
Understanding that skills development is key to professional growth, the initiative is delivered in Switzerland, Oman, Singapore and Estonia to provide attendees with a wide range of cross-sector skills in global business environments.
