Sustainability at Nakilat

Nakilat and its joint ventures (JVs) are committed to Qatar National Vision 2030, which outlines the development of a sustainable future for the State of Qatar. As an organization, we conduct various safety and internal development programs to ensure the creation of a safe and reliable workforce, while our robust corporate social responsibility (CSR) framework aims to enrich the lives of local communities and preserve our natural environment.

Our sustainability commitment comprises several key elements, and among our highlights this year include:

The company’s solid safety performance reflects the effort and dedication of staff both at sea and ashore. Nakilat’s prime objective is to achieve an ‘Incident and Injury Free (IIF)’ work environment and our 2019 safety results greatly complement our commitment toward being IIF.

  • Workplace Wellness Program to promote an active and healthy lifestyle via several activities such as a smoking cessation and mental health awareness talk

Wellness activities were conducted throughout the year, with various sporting activities offered to employees to encourage them to stay fit and healthy

  • Nakilat joint ventures NSW and QFAB conducted various waste clean-ups in support of World Clean Up Day and World Ocean Day

Raising Awareness with Qatar Cancer Society

Nakilat partnered with Qatar Cancer Society and sponsored the Thyroid Cancer Conference held in April, which provided a platform to raise awareness about the available services in Qatar for thyroid gland pproblems, methods of self-examination and medical consultation on skin care for people with thyroid cancer.

Partnering with Education Above All

In the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan, Nakilat partnered with Education Above All to raise funds and provide educational assistance to underprivileged children living in Qatar.

Blood Donation Drive

Nakilat partnered with the Blood Unit of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and organized blood donation drives for employees and tenants at its headquarters and the Erhama bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard.

Nakilat continuously focuses on the personal and professional development of its employees in order to effectively contribute to the achievement of its operational and strategic goals. This focus is maintained through wide-ranging, innovative and blended learning and development activities offered to employees on the job, in classrooms and/or online. We prioritize critical business-related development needs in relation to technical skills, interpersonal skills and management & leadership capability. Where appropriate, internal subject matter expert knowledge is utilized in the form of peer-to-peer learning and knowledge sharing.

In 2019, Nakilat continued to focus on succession planning, leadership development, employee engagement as well as retention. The first phase of a systematic succession planning process was established, with successors identified for critical roles.

In addition, Nakilat engaged with the company’s leadership to craft and design a bespoke, world-class leadership development program applicable to all our managers. This overarching program has been designed to accommodate three different levels of leaders in Nakilat; namely, executive leaders, high potential leaders and emerging leaders with consistent theme being taught to varying degrees of complexity and depth. This program will be launched on a phased basis starting 2020. Our continued efforts at promoting a learning culture to attract and retain our highly-skilled workforce and nurture our emerging talent is evidenced by our achievements throughout the year.
