Oil Industry Workforce Development in Yemen
Nexen’s Yemenization programme is designed to increase the percentage of Yemenis in the company’s workforce by recruiting them and then engaging them in a formal training and development programme called the Individual Development Programme (IDP). The localization programme also seeks to enhance the professional development of Yemenis in the oil and gas industry in their country. In the IDP, every national employee has a tailormade plan that identifies the employee’s specific training and development needs. Each employee’s progress is monitored and mentorship is provided to guide that employee’s development.
