ADNOC Distribution hosted a special gathering to recognize a batch of UAE national trainees for the successful completion of their career development programs within various departments of the company.

His Excellency Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri, Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, attended the event that was hosted at the Ritz Carlton in Abu Dhabi.

The program provided the employees with on-the-job training and focused on equipping them with professional skill-set through specially designed courses on Business Core Competencies, Heath, Security and Environment Core Competencies, Personal Core Competencies and Job Related Competencies.

Speaking at the occasion, His Excellency Abdulla Salem Al Dhaheri said: “The development of our human capital is a strategic priority for ADNOC Distribution as part of our commitment to achieving the Emiratization objectives outlined in the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2020. Our national employees are our greatest asset, and we continue to provide them with targeted development opportunities to help them reach their full potential as competent and well-informed industry professionals. I congratulate all the trainees today and wish them continued success in their careers with ADNOC Distribution.”

As part of its nationalization agenda, ADNOC Distribution seeks to place UAE nationals in senior and mid-management levels, as well as in technical and semi-technical positions across departments. To date, the company has achieved 100% nationalization within its top management and 70% within the aircraft fueling stations. The company is working to achieve its overall target of 75% nationalization across the board by 2017.

Within its ongoing pursuit to provide world-class services, ADNOC Distribution is committed to empowering its employees with the latest knowledge and skill-sets to stay abreast of industry developments. As a key component of this agenda, the recently launched ‘Smart Services’ program aims to develop ADNOC Distribution’s service infrastructure within the UAE Government’s framework to shape a smart government and smart cities.
