Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

MUSCAT: MB Hold­ing Group has in­tro­duced Shar­ifa Al Harthy HR Award of Ex­cel­lence; that is granted to the win­ner of the newly launched HR Stan­dards of Ex­cel­lence scheme.

The Stan­dards will form a bench­mark for HR Func­tional Ex­cel­lence within MB Group. Ded­i­cat­ing this award to the Vice-Chair­per­son has come in recog­ni­tion of her sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to HR pro­fes­sion and the busi­ness com­mu­nity in gen­eral. In ad­di­tion, this award is an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of her long served ca­reer as the head of HR for MB Group, as well as her con­tin­u­ous sup­port to HR fra­ter­nity within the Group and be­yond.

Bad­ran Al Hi­nai, the Group HR man­ager stated, “HR Stan­dards of Ex­cel­lence scheme will play a ma­jor role in peo­ple man­age­ment in the busi­ness. We are im­mensely honoured as a pro­fes­sion that Shar­ifa Al Harthy has ac­cepted to spon­sor the HR Award of Ex­cel­lence.”

This scheme will be used for var­i­ous HR au­dits and bench­marks to sup­port the goal of stan­dard­i­s­a­tion and the 1-HR con­cept lo­cally & glob­ally. More­over, the scheme en­cour­ages dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers to adopt best HR prac­tices and el­e­vates the over­all func­tional pro­fes­sion­al­ism and ex­cel­lence in the MB Group.

Each MB Group com­pany HR has been eval­u­ated against the MB HR Ex­cel­lence stan­dards. It is not a com­pe­ti­tion be­tween com­pa­nies, but a bench­mark against the stan­dards. The first step in the process was to carry out self­assess­ment by HR de­part­ments, fol­lowed by busi­ness ver­i­fi­ca­tion by busi­ness lead­ers. The In­ter­nal Au­dit de­part­ment with in­de­pend- ent HR rep­re­sen­ta­tion, fol­lowed by in­de­pen­dent se­nior man­age­ment panel, did fi­nal eval­u­a­tion and ver­i­fi­ca­tion ini­tially.

The recog­ni­tion cer­e­mony was held re­cently dur­ing the HR Town hall meet­ing. Pet­ro­gas E&P HR team was the best per­form­ing MB Group Com­pany against the stan­dards in 2017 fol­lowed by the run­ner-up MBPS Well Ser­vices de­part­ment and MBPS Pro­duc­tion Ser­vices de­part­ment in the third place. The proud win­ner, Pet­ro­gas E&P HR team, re­ceived their tro­phy from Shar­ifa Al Harthy in a cer­e­mony at­tended by the Group HR man­agers and pro­fes­sion­als.
