QNFS Information Technology Success Story

 

Exploring the Information Highway through Knowledge Transfer

     

 

 Knowledge knows no boundaries. It is the most valuable gift one could offer to a person or employee regardless of his status or calling.

With this in mind, QNFS accepted the challenge from Supreme Council of Information Communications Technology of Qatar when approached to increase the knowledge of the larger work force by means of electronic information access and ultimately, transfer.

QNFS as a company recognizes and values the contributions of each individual worker in order to sustain the core business of the company. QNFS believes that the more our workers are involved in assimilating information about our core business, goals and visions the more we as company become successful to fulfill our corporate social responsibilities.
In kicking off this program, QNFS in collaboration with the Supreme Council of Information Technology in Qatar, piloted a knowledge sharing and transfer program by offering “Digital Learning and IT Awareness Training” to 10 workers from the Shell Project located in the Ras Laffan Industrial Complex.

“Fluor and TRAGS are very pleased that we are able to extend our business with Qatar Petroleum and Shell through QNFS,” said Taco de Haan, vice president of Fluor’s international Operations & Maintenance business. “This is a strategically important award that supports our objective of creating a sustainable local Qatari solution to support the Pearl GTL project and to support Qatar’s goal to become the gas-to-liquids capital of the world. We are committed to help make Pearl GTL a success for the state of Qatar and all of its stakeholders.”

Training sessions were conducted on a Friday, which is normally a rest day in the Middle East, at the QNFS Training Center. Due to the resounding success of this IT training program for the workers, and QNFS being the first company in Qatar to pilot and test the effectiveness and significance of this program, will expand to enroll other workers and continue to enhance their knowledge through digital information sharing.

At the same time on January 20, 2013, ICT donated 10 computers to the QNFS as part of its commitment to support information transfer and enhancement program. The handing over of the computers was attended by ICT, Microsoft and QNFS representatives.

The 10 workers who have completed their “Digital Learning and IT Awareness Training” will now share their newly gained knowledge with the other workers in a typical Fluor type, “Train the Trainer” program.

Another positive outcome of this project is ICT’s continued interest and support regards the future improvement of the internet connectivity and other IT services at the QNFS labor camps.
The success serves as testimony to QNFS’s continued commitment in working with governmental departments to ensure a better future for our employees.
