Employees are the most important asset of an organization. They are the most essential resource to manage businesses and promote value creation. Therefore, and from day one, we at KIPIC have carefully acquired our employees who so far have contributed in building a sustainable corporate system. We were also very keen in having Kuwaiti Under Development employees (UDs) join the organization for the energy that they would bring along with creativity and strong will for making more possible. Having Kuwaiti UDs join KIPIC will also fulfil part of our commitment to community by creating new job opportunities for fresh graduates.
KIPIC managed to attract 103 UDs from different academic disciplines with largest number -especially engineers- joining groups at Al Zour refinery directorate to prepare for the anticipated AL Zour Refinery start up. Some UDs joined corporate groups and major projects and each have commenced their duties in respective teams.
In this context, we would like to emphasize on our commitment to continuously develop our employees especially UDs through the careful deployment of training programs that would align with actual business needs and distinctive capabilities of individuals. We would also like to encourage all employees to exert all possible effort and time to help train and develop UDs by making necessary information and data available and explaining business processes and work flow as needed. This would preferably be done in an interactive, transparent and motivating manner to help stimulate UDs thinking to ask questions, challenge ideas and be eager to learn more. This would help them gradually and fundamentally build up capabilities to make business judgements and handle assigned tasks in an independent and efficient manner over time.
We would also take this opportunity to address the message to our UDs; you are KIPIC’s “first generation” and nucleus of a new corporate establishment under which major existing and future projects are being or will be developed. This avails to you a very unique learning opportunity that might not be accessible later. We are proud of you being part of KIPIC family for your momentum and high energy to give and innovate. We have our hopes on you for high level of genuine performance and we look forward to having this message inspire all of you to seek learning, development and active engagement in all tasks and assignments that you are involved with. Be assured that your career path and development will continue to reside on top of our priorities.
