Nakilat achieved Qatarisation rate of 41%, which is among the highest in the local oil and gas industry during 2018.
This was revealed at the fifth annual form for its Qatari employees on Monday where it launched "Bedaya" programme.
The event was an excellent platform for national employees to learn about the company’s career development plans and programmes, interact with senior management members and have their queries addressed during the various discussions held.
The session also allowed senior management to gain insight into the experiences and challenges faced by Qatari nationals and marine cadets during their learning process at the company.
During the one-day forum, they were also briefed about the company’s 2019 corporate strategy and the significance of incorporating Nakilat’s shared values in their daily activities.
Through its wide-ranging Qatarisation efforts, which include supporting the training initiatives of various educational institutions in the country, the company aims to enhance the skills and abilities of its employees while raising awareness and interest in Qatar’s rapidly developing maritime industry.
"This initiative (forum) comes as part of the company’s robust Qatarisation programme that focuses not only on recruiting talented Qataris, but also developing our existing talent pool and enable them to reach their full potential and become key contributors to the company and Qatar’s maritime industry, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030,” Nakilat chief executive Abdullah Fadhalah al-Sulaiti said.
