Qatarization remains a key focus at Qatar Steel; we seek to promote national and socio-economic development through the creation of employment opportunities at the company, and investing in local talent through the provision of training and capacity building programs.
We implement the following three-pronged approach to attract and retain local talent:
Qatarization Rate (%)
Qatari Senior Management (New Hire)
Qatari New Hires
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.
Focusing on education: We provide educational opportunities through scholarship and sponsorship programs, as well as alternative work arrangements for newly hired Qatari trainees.
Through several engagement channels, such as career fairs, school/college tours of facilities and other activities such as off-site training programs, Qatar Steel regularly engages with Qatari nationals of all educational and professional backgrounds in its effort to attract and boost local talent. However, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic situation this did not take place in 2020, and will possibly not take place in 2021 as well.
