Tamkeen backs increments for 400 Bahrainis at Lulu

Bahrain’s Labour Fund (Tamkeen) will support salary increments for more than 400 Bahrainis employed at Lulu Hypermarket to support their growth and career development, which is 67% of the total Bahrainis employed at the group. This comes as part of the wage increment programme that supports the career development of Bahrainis in the private sector. 
Tamkeen Chief Executive, Maha Abdulhameed Mofeez, said: “We are committed to developing national talent, and therefore our programmes encourage enterprises to employ and retain their current workforce and ultimately foster a supportive work environment that recognises and values their contributions. We are pleased to continue extending our support to Lulu Hypermarket, which is not only a key contributor to the economy but also provides employment opportunities for local talent in the kingdom.”
Juzer Rupawala, Lulu Group International Director, said the group was always at forefront of investing in Bahraini human capital with effective training opportunities and personal growth.
LuLu growth story
"Our Bahraini staff have proved themselves as an important part of the LuLu growth story. Their careers and ability to fit anywhere in our global team reflects the growth of Bahrain's economy and its potential. LuLu Group was recently awarded by the GCC ministers of Labour for its exemplary Bahrainisation programme with highest numbers for the retail sector throughout the GCC." 
He added: "We are truly grateful for our continued partnership with Tamkeen, which allows us to further support the career development of Bahraini nationals within our organisation and we look forward to creating even more high-quality job opportunities for our Bahraini colleagues.--TradeArabia News Service
