Alba honours long service employees
Manama, November 11, 2012
Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), ranked as one of the largest aluminium smelters in the world, recently honoured employees who served the company for between 10 and 30 years at a ceremony at the Alba Club.
Alba's chief executive Tim Murray presented the long service employees with gifts and certificates to appreciate their years of service to the company.
Also present at the event was chief support function officer Basem Al Sharqi, acting chief finance & supply officer Ali Al Baqali and the chairman of the Alba Labour Union, Ali Bin Ali as well as managers of different departments and members of the Alba Labour Union.
"Workers are the life force of any organisation since it is through their efforts that corporate goals can be accomplished,” Bin Ali said.
“We are proud of our colleagues who have served Alba for 10 and 30 years, and for their role in making Alba such a successful company. The Alba Labour Union remains committed to always support employees in addressing their concerns and in helping them to enjoy a highly productive and satisfying work environment."
Al Sharqi said: "Alba is widely considered to be an employer of choice because of the opportunities for jobs and skills training, professional growth and industry best incentives.”
“We ensure - as best as we can - to provide all support to stimulate their appetite for career success and in achieving their potential. I'd like to congratulate these employees whose accomplishment remains the clearest possible evidence of Alba's success in employee welfare, empowerment and involvement."
"For the past forty years, Alba has been recognised as a flagship company for Bahrain's thriving non-oil sector, and much of this success can be contributed solely to the tireless efforts of our employees,” said Murray.
“It is through their hard work and loyalty that Alba has been able to write its success story, namely, emerging as the world's fourth largest single site aluminium smelter and on the national level, to be the catalyst for Bahrain's aluminium sector's spectacular growth that has made aluminium the second major export after oil,” he added.
Alba has also been successful in its Bahrainisation drive, and today, 87 per cent of its 3,000 strong workforce comprises Bahraini nationals, it said in a statement. – TradeArabia News Service
