"Tapping into our experience, we will help develop the LPTIC workforce to boost productivity, lower costs and ensure higher employee morale and loyalty. Subsequently, we will expand the partnership to provide learning and development of skills to the wider Libyan community," he added.
Dr Faisal Gergab said the establishment of the training academy in partnership with Etisalat Academy is part of Libya's commitment to create an innovative, progressive, market-based economy.
"With the expertise of our partners, our staff will learn about new technologies and strategies, thus giving us a competitive edge in the marketplace. We take pride in employee development and would like to be the benchmark for efficient work practices and a highly skilled workforce, in the region," he added.
Etisalat Academy will manage the training and development requirements of the Libyan employees either in its own state-of-the-art facility in Dubai or in the centre being built in Libya, said Ali Al Sharid.
The development programs will focus on several areas such as psychometrics and competency assessments, technical and ICT knowledge, soft skills as well as talent and leadership development programs, he added.
