Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA’s new initiative to empower Omanis

Muscat: Millenium Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Africa has launched one of its key initiatives - ‘TooMooh’ in Oman.
This project is aimed at attracting “talented and ambitious” Omani nationals into pursuing and developing a career within the hospitality sector.
A press event was held to officially launch the programme in the Sultanate that is meant to support, train and empower the talent of GCC Nationals who’re looking forward to developing a lengthy career within the hospitality sector.
“TooMooh has been created to promote and empower national talent in the GCC Countries where Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA operate. I believe it is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community where we are present. We are looking forward to contributing to the vision of GCC countries by unlocking the potential of nationals and enabling them to be a driving force of the country’s economic development,” said Ali Hamad Lakhraim Alzaabi, President of Millennium Hotels & Resorts Middle East.
The comprehensive programme features four levels focusing on the development of fresh graduates, executives and leaders. As a first step, TooMooH will launch the Executive Development Programme (TEDP). This is a fast-track development programme for National colleagues between levels four-six, with the potential to assume managerial positions upon successful completion with mentorship from General Managers.
“We believe in investing in our local people by giving Omanis the opportunity to ‘move up’ within the hospitality industry and actively grow in their career. In a country such as Oman, hospitality is a deep-rooted cultural characteristic; it can be found in every home. It seems only natural, therefore, for Omani Nationals to be at the forefront of Tourism, Hospitality and Hotel Management in The Sultanate,” said Luca Medda, Cluster General Manager, Grand Millennium Hotel Muscat and Millennium Executive Apartments Muscat.
