Glasspoint passes 50 percent Omanisation

Glasspoint Solar recently has passed 50 percent Omanisation of its staff.

Glasspoint Solar recently announced its staff has passed 50 percent Omanisation and will likely pass 70 percent during the first quarter of this year.

Omanization is a government regulated quota program requiting companies to maintain a certain percentage of Omani workers. Glasspoint raised its percentage of Omani workers from 11 percent to 50 percent last year.

“In less than a year, GlassPoint Oman has tripled its Omani headcount, filling key positions across all its main departments and functions," GlassPoint Middle East Human Resources Manager Hani Al Khusaibi said. "We are committed to hiring and developing local talent to help achieve our vision of creating a world-class solar power industry right here in Oman.”

Glasspoint is using its Omani staff to boost Omani industry, recently partnering with Petroleum Development Oman to provide solar powered steam production to drive extraction processes at the company's oil field in the southern part of Oman.

“GlassPoint is pioneering solar powered oil production, which presents our diverse team with rewarding and challenging career opportunities," Al Khusaibi said. "Our team members will develop greater expertise across solar technology innovation, project deployment as well as other support services. These skills will help diversify the economy and create a positive long-term impact on Oman and its people.”
