Gulf Air unveils key development plans
Manama, November 23, 2012
Bahrain's national carrier Gulf Air has launched two corporate development plans, Gulf Air Succession plan and Career Development plan, aimed at developing the competencies of its employees and strengthening the national carrier to deliver its long-term goals.
"People development is one of the key strategic goals of Gulf Air and developing talented Bahrainis to take on leadership roles in the future is an integral part of this programme," said Gulf Air chief executive Samer Majali.
"Our aim is to achieve an organisational competitive advantage by creating competent and talented leaders and prepare them for future challenges in the aviation industry," said Majali.
"As the national carrier of the kingdom, it is our commitment to develop strong and capable Bahraini talents that not only strengthens Gulf Air but also contributes collectively to the kingdom's overall economic development," he added.
The Gulf Air Succession plan is a corporate initiative that targets Bahraini directors and senior managers at Gulf Air, strengthening their leadership competencies, knowledge, skills and experiences as per aviation industry standards and to meet future requirements of the airline.
This is an intensive programme that covers a wide range of subjects, training and workshops over a prolonged period of time.
The Career Development plan is aimed at all staff members at all levels providing structured development programmes addressing Gulf Air competency frameworks and talent requirements.
A number of programmes have been identified, and based on the competency requirements for each job category, individual development plans are identified through assessment processes for each staff member, who will then be enrolled in the programme.-TradeArabia News Service
