To ensure the effective implementation of the EJADA, the newly instituted individual performance management system which is applied in government institutions across the Sultanate, the BSD EJADA Support Team organized the EJADA Awareness Seminar last May 11, 2022. The event was held at Room B106, University of Technology and Applied Sciences-Nizwa.
As this system is at its early stage of implementation, it is necessary that the staff is fully aware of how to use the system and seek clarification about any doubts or misconceptions about it. 29 BSD faculty members, Ms. Turkiya Al Busaidi, HoS Marketing, Mr. Muruga Prakash, HoS Accounting and Ms. Hajar Al Nabhani, HoS HR Section attended the one-hour session.
The program was hosted by Dr. Mushtaq Ahmed of the Marketing Section and Dr. Edwin Premkumar of the Accounting Section opened the program. The BSD- Head of Department, Ms. Nahid Al Shukaili, delivered the key note address. Her speech started by expressing her gratitude and recognition of the entire BSD team’s efforts during the entire semester. She also emphasized about the importance of the seminar as the EJADA is poised to be the main performance management tool that will be used not only in the university but across all government institutions in the Sultanate of Oman.
The EJADA Support Team started the seminar by providing an overview of the entire EJADA Process/Cycle. This was illustrated by Mr. Ubais Parayil, one of the members of the EJADA Support Team and lecturer from the Accounting Section. This was followed up by the detailed explanation of how to use the EJADA online-platform by Mr. Khalid Al Shanfari of the HR Section and BSD EJADA Coordinator.
After the briefings, Ms. Kavitha Rajan, BSD QA Coordinator and Ms. Hajar Al Nabhani , HoS HR Section, answered the queries that were asked by the audience.
The program was ended by the vote of thanks which was delivered by Mr. Abdulkadir Abdulwahab of the Marketing Section.
