Ooredoo Demonstrates Outstanding Commitment to Employee Retention, Dedication to Being Best Place to Work in Qatar
In a move that demonstrates its firm strategic commitment to its human capital, Ooredoo – Qatar’s leading telecommunications operator, named Best Place to Work in Qatar 2021 – has held a ceremony recognising the long service of several of its employees.
The ceremony was held at Ooredoo Towers on 16 November 2022 in the presence of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, Ooredoo’s CEO. Many of the employees – known internally as Ooredoo Family members – have worked with the company for more than 20 years.
During the ceremony, Sheikh Mohammed expressed his gratitude to the employees for their many years of hard work, commitment and dedication, citing them as examples and role models to their colleagues and to those considering Ooredoo for their careers.
The employees were presented with certificates of recognition, along with a gift as a token of the company’s appreciation for their years of service.
“I was delighted to attend the recent ceremony honouring our employees for their long service,” Sheikh Mohammed said. “To see so many employees who have been Ooredoo Family members for more than 20 years gives me great confidence that, indeed, I have much of which to be proud as leader of this company.
A number of recent initiatives underscore Ooredoo’s commitment to its human capital. Its HR department recently completed an upgrade of HR policies to ensure the company operates in an agile, forward-thinking environment, designed to maintain the wellbeing of its employees and retain its position as an employer of choice in Qatar.
Another initiative was Employee Day, whereby staff members were recognised for the contribution to the company’s success and presented with gifts as tokens of the company’s appreciation.
Sheikh Mohammed concluded: “Our firm strategic commitment to our people – to their wellbeing and happiness as well as their development and career progression – is clearly a draw for the top talent in Qatar, and I look forward to seeing yet more of the brightest talents join us for the start of what will surely be a longstanding career with Ooredoo.”
