In keeping with the Qatar National Vision 2030, Qatar Steel is committed to the welfare and development of its employees, and strives to be inclusive as an employer of choice in the region. This is achieved through the work we undertake to create and sustain a flexible working environment and talent retention framework.
Qatar Steel recognises that employee well-being is key to organizational success and we seek to safeguard the same through provision of equal opportunities, generous benefits and allowances, as well as formal mechanisms to address employee grievances and concerns. The company’s excellent salary and benefits packages includes group insurance, retirement benefits, tuition reimbursement, sick leave and paid vacation. Ratio of basic salary of woman to men is 1:1.
We have invested in identifying more inclusive ways of employees working with leaders, whereby leaders support their teams by trusting, empowering and coaching them to succeed while ensuring that cutting edge processes are in place so that individual accountability and employee performance is increased. These approaches ensure that our employees are provided with the pathway to work in accordance with the highest professional and technical standards.
As we still battle the economic and social impacts of the pandemic, Qatar Steel recognizes that a healthy and satisfied workforce is crucial for business success. We recognize and appreciate the wholehearted support from our employees over the past year during these challenging times.
In line with the Qatar National Vision 2030, Qatar Steel aims to develop its team to meet their full potential, contribute to the company’s success, and promote human development within Qatar by providing high-quality training opportunities. Qatar Steel is proud to provide competitive employment packages and development opportunities for both its Qatari and expatriate staff. The company’s aim is to attract, develop, and retain quality employees, and is currently creating a competency framework to streamline the hiring process in order to access the most qualified candidates for positions within the company.
Qatar Steel’s hiring philosophy is not to discriminate against race, gender, or age, and encourage the recruitment of a skilled and diverse team. In 2017, a cultural survey was conducted, the result was released on 29th July 2018. Moving forward an action plan has been planned to close all the identified gaps.
