QF and Siemens Celebrate Success of Joint Training Program

Three exceptional members of staff from Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) have become the first graduates of a joint training initiative developed in collaboration with Siemens WLL Qatar, entitled ‘The Qatar Foundation and Siemens Talent Training Programme’.
QF partnered with Siemens in September 2015, in an agreement to provide comprehensive professional training for selected individuals over a period of six months. Up to six QF employees will participate in the second phase of this unique programme, beginning next month.

The achievements of the QF employees - Ahmed Al-Sumaiti, Haya Al-Khater, and Aisha Al-Mohannadi, were celebrated at a ceremony attended by Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation, Fahad Al-Qahtani, President of Community Development at Qatar Foundation, Janina Kugel, Member of the Managing Board and Head of Human Resources People & Development, Siemens AG, and Fatih Sakiz, CEO Siemens WLL, among many other prestigious guests. The inaugural ‘Ceremony of Talent’ event showcased the active and sustained efforts of both companies to further unlock human potential in Qatar by investing in human capital.

The three QF staff members were specially selected as high potential individuals who could benefit professionally from the enriching work environment of the renowned global technology company. Their commitment was recognized by both QF and Siemens, as they received certificates of commendation from Fahad Al-Qahtani and Janina Kugel, and praised as exemplary programme participants.

The ‘Qatar Foundation and Siemens Talent Training Programme’ is the latest initiative to be jointly created by QF and Siemens. The two organizations are already collaborating on the QF Tram System, as well as continually working to transform QF’s flagship development, Education City, into an environmentally-friendly ‘smart city’.
