Injazat aims to increase employment of Emiratis
Partnership with Aleron to increase number of UAE nationals employed by Injazat
Injazat has formed a new partnership to increase the number of Emiratis working for the company.
The systems integrator has teamed up with Aleron Partners, specialists in Organisation Strategy and Talent Management, to develop and deliver a new integrated approach to Emiratization. The partnership will aim to build on Injazat's existing Emiratisation program, and increase the proportion of its workforce made up of UAE nationals.
With Aleron, Injazat will develop a three phased approach to employing nationals, focused on Succession Planning, Assessments and CDPs, and CDP Implementation.
In the first phase, Aleron will use leading Organisation Strategy techniques including Talent Analytics and Succession Design as well as assess efficiency of HR processes required to support Succession Planning. During the next two phases Ti2 will conduct assessment centres aligned to specific competencies and job descriptions to support the design of career-focused CDPs that will be implemented through effective learning and development practices.
The resulting integrated ‘Career Solution', developed by Ti2 and Aleron aims to raise the percentage of UAE Nationals working for Injazat and establish Injazat as a recognised ‘UAE National Employer of Choice' within the next three years. This integrated Emiratisation solution can also be tailored for other organisations and will be presented to Injazat's clients to support their Emiratisation strategy.
Injazat already launched an Emiratisation program in 2009, The Injazat Institute (Ti2), Injazat's business-orientated Learning & Development initiative. Since then Injazat has been enrolling UAE Nationals onto globally-recognised certification programs, exposing them to intensive coaching and mentoring programs, and supporting their growth through Career Development Plans (CDP) linked to roles and responsibilities. Injazat currently has more than 86 Emiratis occupying strategic managerial, technical and professional positions and accounting for 15% of the corporate workforce.
"From day one, Injazat has considered Emiratisation an integral part of its growth vision. We focus on providing career solutions to our Emirati employees to harness their personal and professional potential and prepare them to take on key roles within the organisation. We do recognise, however, that Abu Dhabi's 2030 vision sets ambitious goals that require us to step up our efforts to engage and activate Emirati talent within our organisation. Through our partnership with Aleron we believe that we will be able to achieve our target of becoming an employer of choice for UAE Nationals and a leader in Emiratisation not only in our industry but within the UAE," said Ibrahim Mohamed Lari, CEO, Injazat Data Systems.
