30 Assistants attended the program which comprised of a one-day workshop that focused on leadership and the ways in which they can develop identities to mark themselves as true leaders. The program, developed exclusively for QAPCO, instills the message of how pro-active leadership can create positive change. The Assistants learned about the qualities of a leader, different leadership styles, and the value of trust and effective communication within teams. They also learned how to design action plans, a skill which will be helpful in their future careers in the workplace and other business environments.
Mr. Nasser Al Hajri, Human Resource & Learning Manager was delighted at the success of this program stating “QAPCO prides itself on being a true Learning Organization as we continually offer training opportunities and create learning potential through our innovative Blended Learning approach. It is generally accepted that employees will benefit from investment in skills: many studies provide evidence of positive and sizeable returns on human capital investments – we at QAPCO believe this investment in our Qatari employees is vital if we are to contribute to Qatar’s 2030 Vision. It is also of paramount importance that we look to the future and nurture our Qatari Assistants as they will be more able to help QAPCO achieve its business goals and objectives”.
Mr. Saoud Al Emadi, Assistant Senior Information Analyst within QAPCO’s IT Department thanked Mr. Al Hajri for organizing this program describing the workshop as “opportunity to develop professional and social competences through peer learning and support.” He continued “Since I joined QAPCO I have had the chance to develop myself in a number of ways, through E-learning, classroom training and via a comprehensive on-the-job training program that will impart a variety of knowledge and skills in me that will raise my productivity and enhance my personal and professional competencies”.
