MUSCAT: bp Oman launched a book during a recent event to celebrate its staff achievements and development journeys titled ‘People at bp Oman’. During the event, bp Oman hosted a panel discussion to discuss the capability development’s opportunities and challenges. The panel was moderated by bp and panelists included external guests from both public and private sector.
The people-focused book highlights bp’s commitment to strengthen the skills and capabilities of people in Oman through its various developments.
Yousuf al Ojaili, bp Oman president said: “bp Oman’s talented workforce have been one of the constant drivers towards reaching our milestones, from supporting energy security to implementing sustainable initiatives that support the economic development of Oman. Today’s event celebrates each staff member’s achievements and hard work. This achievement would not have been possible without the support we received from the Ministry of Energy and Minerals.”
Shaikh Khalid al Hinai, Advisor to the Minister of Energy and Minerals on Human Resources, and Chairman of Block 61 human resource sub-committee commented “bp has established itself as an organisation capable of aligning with Oman’s 2040 objectives of developing a favourable environment to generate employment and attract talents. I am delighted to see bp continue on delivering a bright future for its people.”
bp’s training and development opportunities deliver on Oman’s 2040 Vision of enriching the local labour market. This includes the challenger development programme for fresh graduate and the technician development programme dedicated to developing young Omanis.
bp also offers Omanis the opportunity to work and gain experience abroad. This includes short-term and long-term international assignments outside of Oman. Several of bp’s staff also work in global roles, serving other regions across the world.
