Muscat: Flexible movement of workers in Oman has been proposed by Tanfeedh.
“Multiple businesses under same ownership should be allowed to move workers between companies. It can be done through an automated system,” the Tanfeedh has proposed.
Currently, workers are not allowed to move seamlessly from one business to another one owned by the same owner.
“It is a welcome move. This would help us to restructure our activities easily with the existing manpower,” Sunil Kumar KK, a senior official at Najmat Al Fujairah Trading Construction Company, said.

A legal advisor in Muscat said that currently, a worker has to work under a company which is mentioned in job contract.
“Now, if this is the proposal it is a good one,” the legal advisor added.
Tanfeedh has unveiled 121 proposals to the public this morning are the results of a series of “labs” where public and private sector bosses cut through the red tape of Oman to create a road map for the Sultanate’s future.
These initiatives are the result of six weeks of discussions attended by more than 250 officials from 160 government and private institutions at Tanfeedh.
The Tanfeedh process is Oman’s solution to issues surrounding a non-oil future for the Sultanate, bringing together private and public sector agencies to streamline doing business in the country and to iron out problems.
From 9am until 9pm over the next three days, thousands of residents are expected to pour through the doors of Oman’s new convention centre to give their feedback.
Talal Sulaiman Al Rahbi, deputy secretary-general of the Supreme Council for Planning, said that both Omanis and non-Omanis can participate in the survey, which will contribute to shaping the economic future of Oman.
“People can participate in the survey at an exhibition. They can take part in the survey online. Both Omanis and non-Omanis can participate in the survey, which will contribute to shaping the economic future of Oman,” the official said.
