DPG trains staff in change management
Dubai, September 10, 2009
Dubai Properties Group (DPG), a member of Dubai Holding, is conducting a workshop in change management for all its employees.
The “Change to Control” training is primarily aimed at developing an understanding of the spectrum of challenges affecting an organisation that is undergoing change, providing models and tools which establish the importance of balancing organisational objectives and interpersonal skills in the change process.
The change management programme highlights the importance of communication on the progress and implications of change. It also helps employees develop organisational and personal openness to foster trust and confidence in an otherwise challenging environment.
The internal communications department at Dubai Properties Group has already successfully trained about 500 employees.
The training programme, which is mandatory for all DPG employees, includes real life case studies and metaphoric stories to help participants better understand the reasons for change and how to more effectively react to it.
“Change management is a complex subject,” said Fareda Abdullah, executive director – human capital at DPG.
“The ‘Change to Control’ training is particularly relevant as the real estate market is experiencing fundamental changes which affect our group. It provides our employees with tools, techniques and skills essential to adapting to a changing workplace, and helps them move swiftly and seamlessly towards a more stable environment,” Abdullah added.
“The training, organised as part of our internal activities, bears testament to our commitment towards employees and how we value them as DPG’s core asset.”
DPG is a leading community developer that offers integrated and holistic services in real estate, retail, and hospitality and lifestyle management. – TradeArabia News Service
