Muscat: The Ministry of Civil Service, working in coordination with the governmental and private agencies, has accorded top priority to develop the Sultanate's human resources. The Civil Service Law has made it obligatory upon the employers to ensure training for their staff. All the units are required to provide training opportunities to all their staff working at different levels and nature of jobs. The Civil Service Ministry is keen to train employees in a scientific and professional manner by providing them with scholarships, study grants and fully paid study leave. Employment policies The report issued by the Ministry of Civil Service on July 23 informed that the ministry was in-charge of implementing the employment policies and plans and providing every citizen with an equal opportunity to obtain best possible jobs. The decision about the employment needs of any unit depends on the inputs by the governmental units governed by the Civil Service Law under which the central employment system is governed. Each governmental unit will specify the vacant positions and the qualifications required to fill such positions. The Ministry of Civil Service, in collaboration with the units under the Civil Service Law, prepared a phase-out plan to achieve the desired level of Omanisation during the years 2011-2015. While replacing expatriates with Omani youths, priority will be given to positions where national manpower is available with qualifications and experience to take over such jobs. The jobs related to medicine, paramedics, educational services, experts and advisers are being Omanised by the governmental units depending on the interest and availability of qualified nationals in the labour market. Symposium The report said that the ministry organised a symposium on 'Developing Governmental Performance' last September. The participants at the symposium included a number of ministers, members of the Council of Oman, undersecretaries, governors, public employees, businesspersons and experts from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Egypt, UK and the United States. The symposium came out with a number of recommendations that covered three main issues, namely strategic planning and measuring performance, human resources and improving and developing governmental services. The recommendations of the symposium served as a road map for the administrative and governmental performance development. Omanisation agenda
