Manama, May 11, 2013
Eighty-seven participants attended three high-level HR workshops held by Tamkeen, as part of its objective to enable Bahrainis to further their skills and advance their career.
A cross-section of the Kingdom’s HR professionals received a stimulating insight into establishing a high performance culture at their respective organisations through workshops on performance management, coaching & mentoring and recruitment & selection powered by Tamkeen.
The sixth, seventh and eighth in the series of human resource management workshops mandated by Tamkeen are provided to enhance the human capital of Bahrain by introducing best HR practices in the global sphere to the Kingdom, a statement from Tamkeen said.
The workshops conducted by Third Wave International (TWI) and delivered by veteran trainers Jeannie White and Charlie Sampson, both professionals accredited by globally-renowned corporate education provider Deakin Prime (DP).
They were held at the Gulf Hotel and each participant received an internationally accredited DeakinPrime certificate at the conclusion of the workshop, the statement said.
The trainers delivered comprehensive technical content that is also accredited by Deakin Prime Australia, together with interactive sessions which facilitated learning and sharing of best practices.
They engaged with the participants, understood their needs, and addressed it effectively. TWI together with DP have trained 227 candidates thus far, who provided positive feedback for these workshops.
Amal Al-Kooheji, Tamkeen’s vice president of human capital development, department of Tamkeen, said, “The job market today emphasises on high performance more than it has ever been before, therefore these workshops provide valuable opportunities for those working within the human resources management sector to learn about the latest trends in the field, which is directly responsible for matching and refining the best candidates for the best jobs.”
“The conclusion of the sixth, seventh and eighth of the total of ten workshops now shows that a significant number of HR professionals in Bahrain have become more capable and have been empowered with new knowledge on a number of critical areas, which could substantially assist them in uplifting the human capital of their respective organisations specifically and within the Kingdom overall.”
“Despite always considering with pride our many engagements with Tamkeen to support the efforts of the Kingdom to enhance its human capital, Third Wave International takes special pride in facilitating these particular programmes since it covers three of the most vital topics in today’s business environment,” Dilip de S Wijeyeratne, joint managing director and CEO, Third Wave International (TWI) said. “The importance of high performance cannot be over-stated in today’s context.”
The workshops cover diverse aspects, envisaged to enhance competencies of HR professionals and to bring best practices in the sphere to the Kingdom. – TradeArabia News Service
