This collaboration focuses on the delivery of advanced ICT Services, particularly in Talent Management and Performance Management.

This partnership combines Omantel’s expertise in ICT solutions with Abraj’s deep knowledge in the energy sector to offer a robust suite of tools for enhancing human capital management processes. These tools focus on various aspects of talent and performance management, aiming to streamline operations and bolster productivity.

Dr. Yousuf Al Hinai, ICT General Manager at Omantel, commented that, “In a professional landscape increasingly influenced by automation, the significance of the human element remains paramount. We recognize the critical importance of nurturing and developing talent. Through our partnership with Abraj, we are excited to introduce specialized services that leverage state-of-the-art technology to advance Talent and Performance Management.”

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond mere productivity; it encompasses the well-being and growth of our workforce. By integrating sustainability into our human capital practices, we ensure long-term success for both our employees and our company.”

As per the statement, the solution includes Talent Management using SAP SuccessFactors, which offers a holistic approach to managing talent with features that include employee engagement, performance reviews, and succession planning. The platform integrates AI-powered career planning, providing personalized development recommendations and facilitating career progression for employees.
