This will prepare them to undertake all the roles that are traditionally expected of retail sites-in-charge including administrative, supervisory, leadership and safety aspects, the statement said.
Saeed Abdullah Khoory, CEO of Enoc, said: “The training programme has been carefully structured to cover all aspects of the site-in-charge responsibility, and will be a valuable knowledge asset for the participants. We will continue to introduce training programmes that help shape a fresh and continued cadre of young nationals ready to take up varied roles across our organisation.”
Among the various courses in the programme are an induction and orientation course, followed by tailored courses on customer service, computer skills, supervisory leadership, assertiveness skills, seven habits signature, fire fighting training, problem solving and decision making, first aid, financial fundamentals, and stock taking.
It will be led by experts from the company, and include practical sessions at the retail sites that will prepare the nationals to take up the site-in-charge role seamlessly, the statement said.
