Tamkeen survey to focus on labour market dynamics

MANAMA, January 26, 2016

An employer survey has been launched by Bahrain's labour fund Tamkeen to capture a comprehensive portrait of the labour market in Bahrain and focus on the different dimensions of supporting career advancement in the kingdom.
 
As part of the transfer of responsibilities of the High Council for Vocational Training to Tamkeen, the 'Labour Market Observatory' is now under the jurisdiction of Tamkeen. 
 
The Labour Market Observatory was launched to define, map, interpret and communicate labour market intelligence taking into account career advancement for Bahrainis, to match the demand for the right skills and qualifications in the private sector. 
 
More importantly, establishing a system that collects and analyses labour market information and statistics which creates a platform used in guiding policies and decision-making, as well as informing young people, parents, students, and employers on the choices they need to consider to improve employment opportunities in the economy.
 
Furthermore, Tamkeen has encouraged all selected employers to participate in this survey, as it is a critical component of the primary research process of the Labour Market Observatory. 
 
The objective is to capture information related to business strategy on the following aspects: recruitment, vacancies, employability skills and training investments.
 
Dr Ebrahim Janahi, Tamkeen's chief executive, said: “Tamkeen has always valued the feedback of the public as one of the main pillars of its operations. We continue to seek feedback from the concerned stakeholders, to ensure the gathering of necessary data and statistics that will assist us in catering to market needs.
 
“Tamkeen will continue its cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Development as well as other stakeholders to provide all necessary services required for the private sector."
 
It comes as part of Tamkeen’s efforts to ensure the continuation of qualitative vocational training, a key element to develop Bahraini individuals and enterprises that play a crucial role in furthering and growing the private sector. - TradeArabia News Service
