In line with its ongoing commitment to invest in its national workforce, Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) rolled-out ‘Al Jisr’ Programme -- a new Training and Development initiative which aims to build supervisory skills on Sunday 01 November 2020.
The Programme targets Bahraini employees from within non-supervisory ranks while providing them with the technical and soft skills through a 4-year period, squeezing the timeframe by more than half, to be eligible to apply for supervisory vacancies upon successful completion. Alba held a weeklong virtual interactive awareness campaign to familiarise all candidates on the application criteria and selection process which will be managed by a specialized external party.
On the launch of this initiative, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali commented:
“Boosting Bahrainisation has always been one of our top priorities in the Company. With Al Jisr Programme, we aim to train and develop our high-potential national employees whom we consider our greatest assets.
We don’t aspire to build businesses; we aim to invest in our people who then become Alba future leaders to translate our vision -- to be the number one Aluminium supplier for the generations to come.”
Al Jisr Programme will complement Alba’s Master Training Plan that was launched back in October 2019 as a customised training and development initiative to fulfil the needs of every job and employee in the Company.
