EQUATE Petrochemical Company sponsored the 5th Kuwait Oil & Gas Summit (KOGS), which is one of the Arabian Gulf’s key industrial events.
Participating in a panel discussion titled ‘Energising the Workforce and Strategies for Talent Development’, EQUATE’s global human resources director Mohammad Al-Sharhan said: “EQUATE has a diverse workforce of over 1,500 professionals from different age groups representing more than 25 nationalities and working in the Arabian Gulf, Asia, Europe and North America. EQUATE ensures performance excellence by dedicating great focus to our people’s competencies and career development.”
“This diverse workforce requires agile and flexible people practices that adapt to the needs of different generations, as well as various cultures in several locations. Digitisation is also key to making sure that the new generation is engaged throughout our global locations while maintaining a healthy level of human interaction.”
KOGS 2018 gathered leaders in oil, gas, petrochemical and financial sectors to discuss a number of topics, including challenges, opportunities, reliability, innovation and investments.
