Dubai, July 24, 2011
Etisalat Academy, a major provider of training and development solutions in the Middle East, has won an award for ‘Excellence in Training’ at the recent annual Asia‘s Best Employer Brand Awards in Singapore.
Organised and managed by the Mumbai-based World HRD Congress, the event recognised various organisations from across the continent that have implemented best practices and set new benchmarks in human resource management. The advisory council comprised senior leaders in the industry.
“My vision for the Etisalat Group is that we will be amongst the top tier global operators, offering an ever-growing suite of diversified value-added services across an expanding group of operating companies stretching from the Far East to West Africa. Our people lie at the heart of achieving this vision,” said Mohammad Omran, chairman of Etisalat.
“We are already the employer of choice in our markets, where people from all nations and cultures have a home to creatively achieve, develop and carve out rewarding careers. The Etisalat Academy therefore is a strategic asset, through which we drive a key talent development strategy right across the Group,” he added.
“Etisalat Academy is very honored to receive this prestigious award. It validates the key strategic role we play in supporting the objectives of the Etisalat Group and reinforces that we are on a winning track, said David Brennan, general manager at the Etisalat Academy, who received the award from Phil Knight, global chairman for Asia’s Best Employer Brand Awards.
“We enjoy the challenge of providing targeted learning and development initiatives to our operating companies, each of which is different, done in part to their spread across 18 countries and different technology requirements. We look forward to another successful year ahead.”
The Etisalat Academy is a subsidiary of Etisalat Services Holding, which itself is a part of the Etisalat group of companies, which now stretches across Asia. – TradeArabia News Service
