Human Resource Development (HRD) is another important tool used by SHRM to develop individuals who are capable of filling key positions in the future. Also, HRD is contributing in retaining talents by providing career development programs for employees to make sure that the organization has the skills required to achieve its goals (Beardwell and Claydon, 2010). To apply this concept in the real world and part of its responsibility toward the society, Oxy is providing the following training and development programmes:

  • Induction courses: ¬†conducted in the first day to all employees, contractors, and visitors to increase their awareness about the company and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) rules which should be strictly followed.
  • In-house training: delivered in the company training facilities (training villa) based on the organization's need and to introduce and train employees on new systems.
  • Online courses: including presentations courses aimed to increase employee's knowledge about different subjects. For example, Training Mine programme is a mandatory online course which needs to be completed by all employees periodically.¬†
  • Courses and education assistance: if can not be delivered in-house, employees are sent abroad to take courses to build up their knowledge and skills in the field of work. Also, Oxy provides educational assistance to eligible full-time, regular employees who successfully complete pre-approved course of study. Oxy pays their tuition, textbooks and admission fees. The writer of this essay is sponsored by Oxy to do his MBA.
  • On-job-training: for entry level operators and technicians. Task Book programme is designed to provide proper on-job-training for fresh Diploma graduates to make sure to fill the company's needs of qualified and competent entry level operators and technicians.
  • Succession plan: ¬†recently introduced by the company to make employees ready for upper level positions and part of the Omanization programme to replace senior expatriate managers with Omanis after making sure that they have the knowledge required to carry out the job. For example, mentoring exercise is nowadays seriously implemented by promoting Omanis to higher positions and keeping expatriates as advisors to transfer their knowledge.
