24 June 2015 – MUSCAT, Oman --- As part of Shell’s commitment to developing Omani talent, Shell Development Oman (SDO) has successfully held another two of its training courses’ series this year as part of its “Training for Development” social investment initiative. The HR Management course was held in Sohar while Leadership Management was held in Muscat. Both courses have been attended by participants from different organizations. The courses were facilitated by Shell and delivered by training experts from the relevant fields.
The company’s “Shell Professional Courses” fall under “Training for Development” initiative that has been running for many successful years. The Training for Development programme consists of a series of different schemes ranging from strategic thinking and leadership techniques to confidence building that have been designed to empower Omanis with professional skills. These courses are made available for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), the public sector, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and other members of the general public. In 2014, more than 340 Omanis benefited from these training courses. So far in 2015, about 115 Omanis have been trained in these two courses.
Shell is committed to the social development of Oman and aims to be a responsible corporate citizen of the Sultanate. Shell also implements extensive social investment programmes that contribute to the sustainable development of the country.
Yahya Al Husaini, who works in Oman Chamber of Commerce, recently attended the Leadership skills course in Muscat. Commenting on the course, Al Husaini said, “What I liked the most about this training course is the fact that it had the right combination of theory and practical activities. We learned in this training course the attributes of the successful leader, types of leadership and many other interesting topics. I would like to thank Shell for this initiative and for including nationals from different sectors and different career backgrounds in this kind of training programmes.”
Also, commenting on his time at the course, Munira Al Kindi, who works at AMIDEAST said: “The skills I learned in the leadership skills course were new to me on both professional and personal levels. I learned that it’s never too late to work on equipping yourself with the necessary skills you need to become a leader and succeed in life. I thank Shell for this great opportunity and I’m so glad I attended this course.”
In addition, commenting on these courses, Dr. Ali Al Lawati, General Manager-External Affairs, stated: “we at Shell are proud to have an opportunity to develop Omani talents by introducing them to the necessary skills and tools to enable them to become more productive and effective in their respective organisations.
