A record-breaking 679 Promotions in 2022, the highest in Alba’s history
“Developing our national employees from within has been one of Alba’s founding philosophies. We didn’t promote our people for simply doing their jobs but because they have demonstrated their potential to do more for Alba”, stated Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba)’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali at the ceremony held to mark a record-breaking 679 employees’ promotions in 2022 on Sunday 08 January 2023 at the Company’s Oasis Hall.
Employees across management and non-management levels were promoted in 2022 as part of Alba’s commitment to investing in its national employees. These promotions were based on Alba’s employee development programmes -- Skill Matrix for non-supervisory level employees and Training & Development Programmes (TDP) for supervisory level employees as well as on direct promotion basis.
Adding further, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, Ali Al Baqali said:
“Our employees always come first, and this is an investment we are committed to for the privilege of staying in business for generations to come. We are also pleased to recognise our employees through these promotions and look forward for them to be the changer in Alba’s journey.”
It is noteworthy that Alba achieved 599,252 training hours and a company-wide 6.6% of total work hours being allocated to employee-capacity building activities in 2022 – which is well above the industry’s average rate of 5%.
