Tamkeen backs Al Kindi Hospital staff on jobs, pay hike

MANAMA, February 25, 2024

Bahrain's Labour Fund Tamkeen has announced employment and wage increment support for more than 80 national employees at Al Kindi Hospital, as well as its facilitation of the hospital’s growth over the next two years through its Business Growth Program. 
In line with its partnership with private sector institutions to advance healthcare, one of the largest contributors to national economic growth, Tamkeen’s support for Al Kindi Hospital fosters the expansion of private sector enterprises, as well as provides more qualitative job opportunities for Bahraini talent in this promising sector, said the kingdom's labour fund. 
Facilitating the creation of quality job opportunities for Bahrainis in this high potential sector, Tamkeen is assisting with the career prospects of the hospital’s staff through both the National Employment Program (NEP) and the Wage Increment Programmes. 
Launched in November, these programmes will support 50,000 Bahrainis by increasing their wages, boosting the recruitment channels available to them, and providing expanded career development programmes and job market-oriented training, it stated. 
Tamkeen covers 100% of wage increments for Bahraini employees over a 24-month period and also provides specialized training for Bahrainis ready to assume leadership positions, said the statement.
The labour fund pointed out that its business growth programme was designed to assist established enterprises with expanding their operations, introducing new services, increasing productivity, and ensuring sustainability. 
Tamkeen’s support for Al Kindi Hospital includes a range of improvements, such as recently launched Intensive Care Unit and ambulance services, and enhanced critical care and surgery facilities.
Additionally, the hospital will renovate its radiology unit by adding state-of-the-art fluoroscopy systems, and upgrading its diagnostic precision and overall technological capabilities, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
