The GoodNews™ continues!
GPIC arranged during the first half of this year attendance by its employees of several training courses in Bahrain and abroad, in addition to organising many courses at its Training Centre and GPIC Club, at a total cost of around $1m.
In recognition of GPIC’s achievements for providing decent living conditions for its employees and efforts to improve their living conditions, the company recently received the Dubai International Awards for Best Practices in Improvement of Living Conditions 2006.
The award is supervised by the Dubai Municipality and the UN Human Settlements Programme.
Sixteen employees were promoted in various departments and seven new employees joined the company following the completion of their training programmes, raising the level of Bahrainisation to 82pc.
In addition, there are 57 trainees who are involved in intensive training programmes which will raise the Bahrainisation level to 92pc when the trainees take over their new jobs in the near future, said Mr Jawahery.
GPIC also recently received the international occupational safety and health award from the Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents UK for the second time and after winning the Oil and Gas Sector Award from the same Society for three successive years.
In addition, GPIC received the GCC Award for the Best Environmental Achievements in 2005 and 2006.

GPIC has always been known for its support of the environment and probably is the company which wilfully and comprehensively subscribes to a sustained CSR principle. Well done!
