Capability building has always been one of our prime success factors. As a pioneer in our industry, forty years ago we envisioned the workforce of the future as we recruited local talent and shaped the first generation of Qatari downstream experts.
In 2015, QAPCO invested more than QR 3 million in its 269 training programs and 51 long-term development programs, which were conducted to enhance the skills and knowledge of our employees, as well as improving the company’s operational capabilities.
The focus of our training programs was on core technical and HSE related skills as well as delivering specific training programmes connected to the GSD.
In addition, QAPCO invested heavily in leadership and soft skills training to build a more effective and highly motivated team, which enhances company maturity and improves employee morale.
In line with becoming a more efficient organisation and with a focus on optimising costs, in 2015 many courses were delivered in-house by qualified instructors and coaches.
In 2016, QAPCO will continue its focus on developing the leadership skills specifically centered on HSE management.
