Al-Futtaim launches scheme to develop national talent

DUBAI, May 19, 2019

Al-Futtaim has announced the launch of Sinyar, a pioneering programme for UAE nationals dedicated to developing emerging talent across its organisation. 
This programme is in alignment with the UAE’s Vision 2021 and UAE Government Accelerators initiatives to harness the full potential of its national human capital by maximising, nurturing, attracting and retaining the best talent, the company said.
The name ‘Sinyar’ in local Emirati dialect means the trace left by a boat in the water and was used to signify how it will guide employees on the right path for their careers. 
The initiative is part of Al-Futtaim’s long-term commitment to accelerating the development of Emirati talent. This programme will help Emiratis understand their core areas of strength and develop in these areas through a mix of assessment tools. It will consist of a combination of solutions tailor-made based on the needs of each employee to help them excel in their career using development intervention, mentoring and fast track accelerator programs, said a statement from the firm. 
Abdulrahman Saqr, HR director, Automotive and Group Services at Al-Futtaim, said: “The UAE is a cosmopolitan country with many nationalities and one of its strengths has always been its human talent. This is the same for Al-Futtaim; our people are our strongest asset and we recognise that investing in them is the most important investment we will ever make. We launched Sinyar to ensure we have an effective mechanism in place to mentor and build on our Emirati talent. The leadership at Al-Futtaim have played a vital role in the development of this program and its execution as it falls under their commitment to invest in our talents and their growth.”
As one of the most progressive businesses based out of Dubai and a leading multinational company, Al-Futtaim is committed to enriching the lives of its customers by offering the world’s best brands and services along with world-class customer service and after-sales support, said the statement. –TradeArabia News Service
