Pact signed for exchange of expertise in administrative development

Muscat: The Ministry of Labour signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with OQ, a global integrated energy group, to devise a three-year plan for the exchange of expertise and services in administrative fields.

The MoU explores solutions for the development of human resources. It was signed by Sayyid Salim Musallam Al Busaidi, Labour Ministry’s Undersecretary for Human Resources Development and Ashraf Hamad Al Ma’amari, CEO of Human Resources, Technology and Work Culture at OQ Group.

The MoU provides for benefiting OQ’s employees to share their experiences and offer their services to the Ministry of Labour in an attempt to provide the services required by the ministry. Additionally, OQ’s employees will contribute to developing national competencies and study the possibility of training the MOL’s employees by utilising the development and training programs for human capital at OQ Group.

Furthermore, they will share their experiences in personal empowerment (coaching), occupational competencies (The National Framework for Occupational Competences), in addition to job succession and replacement (Human resources development system) and work environment development.

Sayyid Salem bin Muslim Al Busaidi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Labour for Human Resources Development, commended the efforts exerted by OQ to develop national capacities and their contributions to educational, training and qualification programmes. He also praised their assistance in supporting the government efforts through the various initiatives that contribute to empowering some entities by implementing their programmes and plans aiming at achieving the objectives of Oman Vision 2040.

On this occasion, Al Busaidi said, "The MoU signed with the Ministry of Labour contributes to elevating the performance of administrative departments and benefiting from the national competencies at OQ. It will help in implementing some training and qualification programmes to enable our employees to raise their capabilities and occupational skills in an attempt to meet our future aspirations."

Al Busaidi hailed the training programmes presented by OQ to qualify national cadres at many levels, particularly the fresh graduates by providing them with practical skills through various training programmes.

Ashraf Al-Mamari expressed his appreciation for the efforts made by the MOL in human resources development to achieve the objectives of Oman Vision 2040 and promote cooperation between the public and private sectors with regard to developing national competencies in various fields.

Al-Mamari said, "OQ harnesses its potential and capabilities for serving the MOL’s plans and programmes to develop national competencies. This comes out of our belief in the importance of cooperation between the public and private sectors in the field of human development."

He stressed that the signing of this MoU aims to develop this cooperation in a practical way that contributes to creating plans and programmes to achieve the aspirations of the two sides.
Al-Mamari explained that the MoU will be valid for three years and that the completed programmes will be evaluated in stages to maximise the benefit from them.

"The MoU culminates the efforts exerted by the group during the last six months to establish the framework of the personal empowerment "coaching" programme and the national framework for occupational competencies, in addition to exchanging experiences in the field of improving the work culture and environment," he concluded.
