Times of Oman : 24.05.2015

Muscat: Society has not been encouraging young Omanis to accept jobs other than office work, says an accomplished Omani business owner, who also believes that a revision of the education system and certain regulations is the key to the success of Omanisation. 

Fresh graduates want an office job right away without necessarily focussing on self-development, said Eng Amer Al Fadhil, managing director of Competence HR, one of the 30 successful candidates for the National CEO Programme.

"Some people would rather stay home than take up some work that they might perceive as demeaning. There is no such thing. 'Work' and 'demeaning' do not go together in one sentence," he told the Times of Oman in an interview.

Al Fadhil strongly believes in Omanisation and has achieved a 75 per cent Omanisation rate at his company, way more than the 35 per cent required by law. 

He says that Omanisation means more to him than just 'lip service'.  

In a career spanning around 20 years, Al Fadhil has served as IT service manager in the Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), vice president of The Wave, Muscat, vice president of Damac Properties in Dubai, and the chief executive officer of Sadara LLC in Dubai.  

Job-seekers
His current position, which involves dealing with Omani job seekers and employers, has given him a deeper insight into the challenges facing the development of local workforce, who he believes can contribute the most to the country in the long run.

Apart from social upbringing, the wide gap between the outcome of education and the actual needs of the market in Oman needs to be addressed, said Al Fadhil.  

In his opinion, some of the regulations have not been helpful either. 

For example, the fact that the Ministry of Manpower ends up giving an amount to people who are looking for job does not send a positive message, he noted. 

"Slowly but surely, we are taking very positive strides towards maximising our national workforce," says Al Fadhil, who believes that Omanisation at senior and mid-management levels is bearing fruit.

Good results have been achieved in a number of sectors such as banking and oil and gas, but Omanisation rates need to be increased in industrial and hospitality sectors and a number of other fields, he said.

"We have the talent. We have the people who are capable of running multinational conglomerates," Al Fadhil said, urging employers to be more far-sighted and consider the long-term benefits of developing local talent instead of just focussing on the issue of salary. On the other hand, he encouraged Omanis to embrace training in the first years of their career, which will enable them to reap benefits in later stages of their professional life.

National CEO programme
Al Fadhil is delighted to be selected for the National CEO programme, which will take him on a journey of self-development, and describes it as a quite significant initiative.

Under the patronage of the Diwan of Royal Court, the programme is an initiative launched by the Public Private Partnership Committee (PPP). 

It is the first of its kind in the Sultanate and its goal is to develop the next generation of private sector Omani leaders and executives.

The candidates had to undergo a rigorous selection process to become a part of the programme.

Al Fadhil, the managing director of Competence HR, has been seeking to give back to the society and contribute to the development of nationals through various initiatives.

According to him, his company is one of the very few Omani companies, fully owned and run by an Omani with such a high rate of Omanisation, which offers end-to-end solutions in the field of human resources.

Competence HR offers a wide range of services related to recruitment, training and development and human resources consultancy and 'thousands' of people in various companies and organisations have benefited from its programmes, he said.

The company has introduced a number of CEOs and other high-ranking officials to companies looking for the right talents.

Al Fadhil himself provides coaching to those interested in setting up their own business and has been delivering speeches, including at the National Business Centre. 

Developing entrepreneurs' skills in sales and marketing and financial management should be high on the agenda of any training programme, he said, encouraging young Omanis to pursue their passion and work hard to realise their dreams.
