We Are Committed to Attracting and Nurturing Local Talents
Ooredoo, Qatar’s leading telecommunications operator, has indicated its strong commitment to in-house human capital development with the major leadership appointment of Qatari national Eman Al Khater as Chief Human Resources Officer.
The company’s core corporate strategy – characterised as ‘Building Capabilities of the Future’ – prioritises Human Resources as a key focus area for its development in the coming years, with human capital considered an integral element to ensure future success.
As newly appointed Chief Human Resources Officer, Eman Al Khater will seek to direct the Ooredoo workforce throughout Qatar’s transition to a knowledge-based economy, as part of the country’s drive to achieve Qatar Vision 2030.
Ooredoo’s recent HR initiatives are designed to help employees explore and develop their potential in a dynamic and performance-driven work environment, backed by best-in-class professional mentors. Of particular importance is a Qatarisation programme creating opportunities for Qatari nationals and enabling their career progression as part of a winning team.
By recruiting, training and retaining talented Qataris – including through the use of a Qatari Graduate Development programme, internships, scholarships and sponsorships – the company aims to address skill gaps and continue to foster a fair, diverse and flexible workforce, committed to the challenges of the 21st century and the drive towards digitalisation as part of Qatar National Vision 2030.
Eman Al Khater will also be ensuring that the company continues to offer a clear learning path for consolidating and expanding the skills and competencies needed to sustain and grow professional capacity.
“We are committed to attracting, retaining and developing the brightest of talents and the most driven, ambitious employees as a core element of our corporate development strategy,” said Ms Al Khater. “I am excited about the opportunities ahead, and in particular about the potential to further advance the career progression of women across all levels of the organisation. At Ooredoo we pride ourselves on our longstanding commitment to our workforce, and I welcome the challenge of continuing the excellent work carried out by my predecessors as we drive the company forward.”
Ms Al Khater joins Ooredoo Qatar as Chief Human Resources Officer from Group Strategic Sourcing, where she was Director of Sourcing Capabilities, Performance & Partnerships. She has extensive experience in the telecommunications industry, having worked with both Ooredoo Group and Ooredoo Qatar in previous roles.
