ESAG launches National Development Programme for Emirati talent

August 26, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group (ESAG), a leading Dubai-based multidivisional conglomerate, has announced the launch of their National Development Programme as part of the Nafis initiative in the UAE. The programme is aimed at investing in Emirati talent and providing professional developmental pathways that will support efforts in future-proofing UAE talent. It is tailored to fit the aspirations of UAE nationals who are ready to explore their strengths, obtain fundamental knowledge and practical skills to perform and excel within the various key operations in the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group. The first batch of UAE graduates have begun the programme with ESAG. The second batch will be inducted in December followed by more intakes in 2023.

The programme starts with a 15 day onboarding segment focusing on foundational skills. This is followed by on-the-job experience where candidates learn from experienced mentors, internal subject matter experts and senior colleagues. They also have an opportunity to work within different business verticals, depending on their interests and expertise. This structured development roadmap also includes a combination of assessments, tested theories, best practices, gamification, role-plays and a leadership panel guiding throughout the learning journey.

“Our National Development Programme stays true to our legacy of being part of the UAE’s growth story, by nurturing and supporting the next generation of Emirati talent. The programme will support the nation’s long-term development path for UAE Nationals and also elevate our businesses by diversifying expertise and increasing our knowledge base through the recruitment of top national talent in line with the Nafis initiative,” said Easa Al Gurg, Group CEO.

ESAG’s National Development Programme aims to develop UAE Nationals, as they transition to careers within the Group, in a range of business areas including Finance, Marketing, Interior Design, Retail Operations, Sales, Production and Foundry Operations. This distinctive development journey is designed to pave their career paths as they look to seamlessly integrate into the workplace and become true custodians of UAE’s growth.
