(MENAFN Editorial) The Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE), through its Human Resources Development Centre, holds a prime importance on training activities to expand the knowledge and skills of its human cadres according to standards that ensure outstanding quality of performance. The first quarter of this year has witnessed a significant performance of the centre in training the employees and developing their skills and talents in various fields.
Building the capabilities of PEIE's human cadres represents a strategic direction designed by the upper management of PEIE. Besides, this aspect represents a part of the core values of PEIE in the field of training, which promotes the culture of continuous development and growth. To achieve this, the Human Resources Development Centre is implementing a series of training programmes, workshops and events, which target staff of PEIE and the national cadres in the companies and factories pertaining to PEIE.
Speaking about the training achievements during the first quarter of this year, Salwa bint Said Al Shukailiya, director of PEIE's Human Resources Development Centre, stressed that PEIE has seen a noteworthy development in recent years in the field of training. "For this year, the centre designed the annual training plan in light of the needs of the human cadres. In fact, various programmes, meetings and workshops were hosted during the first quarter of this year, which focused on a variety of fields including management, financial and technical subjects for various levels of management," Salwa said, adding: "Duri the first quarter, around 147 of PEIE employees were trained inside and outside the country, which confirms an outstanding achievement compared to the total number of PEIE employees. However, our main focus is on the quality of the training opportunity rather than the number of the trained cadres."
PEIE has always been keen to boost its supporting role to provide training opportunities to the companies and factories pertaining to its industrial estates, in line with its belief on the prominent role played by the industrial sector in the overall development of the Sultanate. "PEIE is coordinating with the managements of the companies and factories with the aim of encouraging the cadres to be engaged in training programmes, workshops, and awareness lectures carried out by the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates in various fields," Salwa noted.
The number of participants who took part in training programmes representing the various companies and factories stood at 31; while the total number of participants who took part in the awareness and cultural lectures and meetings touched 176. These programmes attempt to develop the knowledge and skills in their behavioural, management and technical aspects.
Al Shukailiya added that the role of PEIE is not only limited to training activities for its employees and the companies and factories that fall under its umbrella, but it has also expanded its role to provide training opportunities for the community. A number of owners of small and medium enterprises have taken part in programmes hosted by PEIE.
