The FINANCIAL — Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, signed an agreement with Takatuf Oman LLC, the Human Capital solutions provider, to introduce a range of assessment solutions to Oman Air’s dynamic talent management processes.
This comes as part of the Company’s continued drive towards enhancing talent management processes.
By using the techniques employed by the solutions, Oman Air will be better placed to make decisions on future employees’ suitability for a job opening. This helps identify employees’ strengths and areas of development. The assessment solutions will also be used internally for assessing leadership capabilities and succession management, according to Oman Air.
Asma Humaid Al Ghabshi, Oman Air Executive Vice President for Human Resources, said: “Working with Takatuf as a professional partner leading to the signing of this agreement has been vital to centralising some of our resource allocations. As we continue this drive, it is vital that we inspire our employees to reach their full potential and the new assessment solutions will play an important role in facilitating this.”
Hilal Al Jadidi, Takatuf’s Director of Consulting Services, commented: “Takatuf has made it a priority to contribute to the development of Oman’s Human Capital and the potential of the labour force to effectively respond to the region’s fast-growing competitiveness. We are delighted to partner with Oman Air as it continues its drive to develop its employees and remain one of the best airlines in the region”.
Being introduced this month (September), the assessment solutions are provided by Takatuf Oman LLC Assessment Centre. The Centre is managed by a Registered Industrial Psychologist supported by Omani team members who are all qualified and accredited to administer and interpret psychometric assessments.
