Enoc, Thomson Reuters deal to raise bar on ethics

DUBAI, February 29, 2016

Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) has signed a deal with Thomson Reuters to develop an e-learning suite training programme on ethics and compliance for its staff to strengthen their ability to engage with real-life scenarios of ethical best practices within the highly regulated oil and gas industry. 
The agreement was signed at Enoc headquarters in the presence of Saif Humaid Al Falasi, chief executive of Enoc Group; and Nadim Najjar, managing director Middle East & North Africa, Thomson Reuters.
It followed a visit by Enoc’s senior delegation to Thomson Reuters’ in London, to commemorate the long-standing business relationship between both entities.
The eLearning modules offer practical and interactive solutions to support a culture of integrity built on the principles of the Group’s Code of Business Conduct. 
The code is focused on providing a clear insight and understanding of the corporate values, responsibilities, obligations and ethical ambitions of ENOC, both to its staff, its partners and stakeholders. 
The partnership also highlights Enoc’s ongoing commitment to human capital development within the organisation.
The eLearning programmes will allow Enoc to deliver a ‘Conflicts of Interest’ video; a fraud awareness course, and a game-based course which will showcase several scenarios to educate staff on how best to manage ethical situations with references from Enoc’s code of business conduct. 
The training on other emerging ethical topics will also be introduced as part of the eLearning suite.
“Our collaboration with Thomson Reuters will have a positive impact on our valued team members. The combined efforts of Enoc’s Group business ethics and compliance and human resources focus on fostering talent, allowing them to acquire, develop and retain skills-sets and behaviours to help fulfil individual career goals and organisational business objectives, while maintaining highest standards of ethical business practices," said Al Falasi.
“In line with the focus on Emiratisation, development of our human capital is a key priority and it is our company’s commitment and group strategy to ensure that the continued development of competent, skilled, engaged, and empowered human capital is sustained. We have also instilled high levels of integrity across our operations through the introduction of the code of business conduct," he said.
Enoc has invested in numerous development initiatives across the group companies, ranging from accredited behavioural skills programmes specifically designed to develop competencies as per the Enoc functional and behavioural competency model, to a sales academy in marketing and safety leadership initiatives. 
Every year an average of over 1,000 employees are trained within the Enoc corporate training centre, with over 4,000 in the retail training centre.
Nadim Najjar, managing director, Middle East and North Africa, Thomson Reuters, added: “The use of online training and ‘Game’ based technology as part of a compliance programme is becoming more prominent within the Mena region. We are happy to partner with Enoc to deliver professional Ethics and Compliance courses for the development of staff at all levels. 
"We believe that learning is an evolving process and a key driver of any company’s growth. The new programme focuses on strengthening the employees’ ability to engage with a scenario and make the right decision, building a strong understanding of ethical best practice within a highly regulated world.” - TradeArabia News Service
