Sixteen staff members were selected to attend the first training programme that started last week and continued for four intensive days. Staff members were taken from departments throughout the company, ranging from development to sales and finance to customer care.

The programme covered a variety of areas ranging from the role of team leader, using resources effectively, problem solving, effective communication, team briefings, and presentation skills. The sessions were mainly interactive in nature, allowing time for the group to put into practice what they had actually been taught during the session.

Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar Properties, said: “Maximising workplace performance and retention of staff is the key to success for any organisation. This first group is simply the start of such training programmes that we will be rolling out. More staff across various departments — whether it is marketing, property handover, or legal — will have the opportunity to attend development courses.”

“In fact, investing in staff is a key priority for Emaar, and as such, we are proud to announce that a dedicated Emaar Training Centre will be ready next month, which will give Emaar employees a state-of-the-art facility in which to develop their careers,” he added.
