Haya Water is a Government of the Sultanate of Oman owned entity, and is empowered to build, own and operate the Muscat Wastewater Project in the Sultanate covering an area of 3,900 km2. This wastewater project is one of the biggest projects in the Sultanate and consists of building and operating wastewater networks, pumping stations and sewage treatment plants. Haya Water has a track record of developing innovative and cost-effective solutions for the development needs of its employees.
An Assessment and Development Centre was developed to assist Haya Water in identifying, developing and retaining key talent in the organisation. The client was facing a key challenge to not only retain existing capability but also to ensure a seamless leadership pipeline, and motivate key talent by providing them line of sight of their careers. The current market situation in Oman had been characterised by turnover in key positions and organisations are challenged with not only identifying talent but also in ensuring a future generation of business leaders.
Ajyal’s proposed Solution
An interactive & engaging Assessment and Development Program for Haya employees which includes:
- Train the Assessor Workshop
- Hogan Personality Assessment Workshop
- Five 2-day Assessment and Development Centres
- Personal Reports for all participants
- Individual Feedback and Coaching for all participants
- Executive Summary Report for the Haya Senior Leadership Team
Ajyal’s solution was specifically characterised by our ability, through our network of specialist providers to source and bring experts from around the globe to ensure that the client had the best possible professionals at their disposal during the design, development and delivery phases of the Project.
What distinguished our solution was our ability to not only deliver the Assessment and Development Program for that led to the identification of individual and organisational strengths and development areas, but have also provided a real time collaborative experiences for Haya professionals to observe and gain valuable experience from the global specialists.
The results of the Centre would be able to support Haya’s Succession Planning initiatives. We have determined the organizational needs for building key talent and also provided them with the data to build their leadership pipeline. These would also help them develop individual personalised course of action, based on each employee’s competencies and the potential to excel and attain a higher role in the organisation, as well as preparation of related development intervention.
Haya management have had an overview of organisational competency strengths and the potential risks needing attention or development, and thus, provided them with recommendations to address each of these challenges, ultimately through enhancing the identified people capabilities and building the required people development initiatives that would assist in the attainment of its strategic goals.
More so, the successful delivery of the intensive training workshop for Haya’s future Assessors would help build Haya’s future capability for running its own Assessment and Development Centre.
