Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) received the Brandon Hall Group Silver Award for Excellence 2023 for its Training and Development Programme (TDP) under the Best Development Programme for Frontline Leaders’ Category.

This is the fourth time that Alba has been recognised by the Brandon Hall Group with the previous awards being won in 2016, 2018 and in 2021.

The TDP is one of Alba’s major and long-running initiatives that aim at boosting Bahrainisation by raising the professional calibre of its Bahraini employees through education and skills training, thus enabling them to take positions in supervisory ranks and above.

Ali Al Baqali, Alba’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed his delight to be recognised amongst the best by receiving the prestigious award for Alba’s in-house Training and Development Program (TDP).

"Alba’s TDP Programme is a top initiative designed with a deep understanding of individual needs and commitment to fostering a culture of continuous learning and growth in line with Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2023. The TDP initiative has allowed us to develop hundreds of nationals throughout the years and today we are proud to have 85% Bahrainisation out of our total workforce," he added.

The Brandon Hall Group is a leading global research and analyst firm based in the United States which has been recognising excellence and best practices in learning and development, leadership development, diversity, and inclusion as well as other areas related to human resources management for over 20 years.
