ENOC boosts Emiratisation strategy with Mawaheb programme

Published May 9th, 2010 - 10:32 GMT

ENOC has strengthened its Emiratisation strategy by launching a national development programme called Mawaheb. The 18-month programme is aimed at training Emirati managers to develop and enhance their leadership capabilities through mentoring, specialized workshops, lectures, and forums.

The initiative underlines ENOC’s commitment to the Emiratisation strategy set by the leadership of the UAE to build future leaders of high caliber and skills. ENOC is set to roll out two other leadership programmes in the coming months, Ajyaal and Tadreeb, for supervisors and junior level professionals in the organization. 

Saeed Abdullah Khoory, ENOC’s Group Chief Executive, said that introducing Mawaheb is part of ENOC’s continued efforts to enhance the caliber of the UAE workforce in the company. “Attracting and retaining UAE talent is one of the challenges that we face. That is where the Mawaheb programme comes in as it helps to develop and retain UAE nationals so they can contribute effectively to the UAE’s national development and serve as a backbone for a robust economy.”

ENOC is a key player in the Emiratisation strategy and has surpassed the government’s target with almost 80 per cent of its Emirati workforce in leadership roles. The group recently took part in United Arab Emirates University’s career day and the Engineering Challenges Conference held at Dubai Men’s College, to identify and recruit Emirati engineers.


ENOC also offers the Graduate Development Programme to all UAE nationals with Bachelor’s and Higher-Degree diplomas that enables Emirati fresh graduates to take up leadership roles within the organisation through carefully selected training programmes, on-site training and periodic evaluations.
