Al Bustan Centre & Residence, the deluxe hotel apartments which offer world-class services and facilities in the heart of Dubai, recently launched their Career Development Programme (CDP), enabling employees to reach their professional goals, establish ways to attract and retain talent in the organization and manage organizational transformation.

CDP is an exclusive and approved programme for the employees of Al Bustan Centre & Residence to assess their professional competencies and experiences and design a pre-determined plan to advance their expertise and provide career growth opportunities. Since the inception of Al Bustan Centre & Residence, the property has tried to create a knowledge intensive business, seek new and creative means to conduct their businesses and strive to create employers of choice. 

Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer of Al Bustan Centre & Residence, said: “The hotel business is a growing industry with an incessant need for highly talented workforce. We are grooming our staff to take on more responsible roles and at the same time augment their career paths. Focused on personal development and growth, the programme identifies the gap between the current situation and the desired goal. Thus, the main objective of the course was to boost our human resource management capabilities and practices to keep pace with the world standards. Under the programme, selected employees were nominated for future training.”

The course was aimed at equipping new entrants with relevant skills and knowledge needed for the tourism industry. It also motivated employees to raise their professional bar and ensure that each individual’s needs are met to help the organization achieve its goals and increase profitability. The property invests in such training courses for imparting the best skills to its employees which are one of the keys of maintaining a competitive edge in UAE’s hospitality and tourism sector.
