The Emirates Group and GE Aviation have officially kicked off GE's Leadership Development Programme for 28 UAE National employees at the Emirates Group. The commencement of the programme follows on from the MoU signed between both organisations at the Dubai Airshow 2019, and since then qualifying Emirati employees have gone through a rigorous selection process to identify the first participating cohort.
The GE Aviation Leadership Development Programme combines formal leadership training as well as action-based learning. The overall programme design and content aims to develop reflective leaders who are agile, resilient and dedicated to deliver impactful outcomes. This customised programme has been built upon the GE leadership curriculum and is structured in modules, delivered in Dubai and globally.
Amira Al Falasi, Emirates' vice-president, HR Talent Acquisition and National Talent Development and Aziz Koleilat, GE Aviation vice-president of sales & marketing, MENAT Region, officially welcomed the participants and helped kick off the programme. "We are proud of our UAE National workforce and our core strategy is to nurture our future talent and ensure we have a strong Emirati employee base that is reflective of where we are going as an organisation. We look forward to tapping into GE's expertise and giving our Emirati employees the opportunity to gain the management and leadership know-how to scale the next level of their careers," said Al Falasi.
The Emirates Group employees around 3,000 UAE Nationals in a variety of roles across the company. Its Emiratisation strategy, Rehlaty, aims to recruit and retain UAE Nationals by offering a range of career opportunities and growth programmes like the GE Aviation Leadership and Development programme, as well as opportunities such as lateral moves to provide them with a myriad of cross-functional experiences to ensure they grow within their careers at Emirates. Rehlaty also provides a framework and outlines career progression for UAE Nationals.
Koleilat said: "GE Aviation is committed to partnering with Emirates to develop in-region talent and advance the local aviation industry. Based on GE's world-recognised leadership curriculum, GE Aviation and The Emirates Group can together prepare the UAE's future business leaders for an ever-changing and innovative environment."
