beIN invests in capacity building of Qatari youth
beIN Media Group announced the signing of a secondment agreement with one of the world’s largest international private equity firm. TPG is a distinguished American investment company that currently has approximately $72bn under management and has invested in more than 400 companies globally.
The agreement aligns with beIN’s overall aim of constantly developing and honing the skills of its Qatari employees. Ali Al Zaini (pictured), a financial analyst from within the finance department at beIN was selected as the first employee to attend the month long programme being hosted in the states of Texas and California.
“I found my secondment at TPG to be highly beneficial and rewarding. The experience gained in building modules to analyse financial performance of multiple large organisations was extremely valuable. During this period, the interactions I had within the firm enabled me to further develop my professional experience. I thank beIN Media Group for selecting me for this training,” said Al Zaini.
This initiative is part of a larger effort by beIN Media Group to expose its employees to global best practices and to enable them to become future leaders in their respective fields.
“Due to our awareness of the great importance of developing our local talent, beIN will continue to invest in the capacity building and skill enhancement of its Qatari employees. This will be done through embedding our staff in prominent organizations that will help them benchmark the global best practices,” said Tareq Zainal, beIN’s Executive Director of Human Resources and Financial Affairs.
beIN plans to continue both establishing and developing its relationship with global companies like TPG in the future. More beIN employees will get the opportunity to participate in similar international training courses, which work towards the company’s vision of building strong Qatari talent.
