We implement the following three-pronged approach to attract and retain local talent:
Developing human capital programs targeted for Qataris: to attract fresh talent, we follow local industry best practices by offering incentives for Qatari nationals, such as competitive pay packages, highly specialized training, and on-going career development opportunities. Moreover, our excellent salary and benefits packages include group insurance, retirement benefits, tuition reimbursement, sick leave, and paid vacation.
Investing in enriching and engaging practices: we support employee engagement and satisfaction and provide many development opportunities for existing employees. In particular, one tool used by the organization is the “Organizational Cultural Survey” which aims at assessing the working climate and gain insights for improvements. Please see Chapter 8 for further details.
Focusing on education: We provide educational opportunities through scholarship and sponsorship programs, as well as alternative work arrangements for newly hired Qatari trainees.
