Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has celebrated a double win at the MENA HR Excellence Awards 2015, after being honoured in the Nationalisation Initiative of the Year and HR Professional of the Year categories.
The MENA HR Excellence Awards, now in their seventh year, celebrate excellence in human resource management and development within the Middle East and North Africa.
Etihad Airways received the Nationalisation Initiative of the Year award for pioneering one of the UAE’s most successful nationalisation strategies, with a focus on offering dynamic career and development opportunities to Emiratis in the UAE and other markets worldwide.
The airline currently employs more than 2,300 UAE nationals across its global business. Emiratis remain the number one nationality group amongst total employees based in the UAE, and amongst employees at manager level, executive level and within Etihad Airways’ pilot community. Under plans to accelerate its employment of UAE nationals over the next five years, Etihad Airways is expected to recruit more than 6,000 UAE nationals by 2020.
A number of initiatives are underway to create rewarding careers for Emiratis. Last year, Etihad Airways opened a Revenue Accounting Centre of Excellence in Al Ain, which will create job opportunities for over 1,000 UAE nationals by 2017. Etihad Airways has also expanded its broad portfolio of specialist development programmes for UAE nationals to include areas such as finance, revenue management, network planning and cargo.
