Empowering Future Leaders: EGA’s Success with...
EGA's Successful Graduate Programme, LEAP, Embraces a Blended Learning Journey Through a Guided Digital Learning Path, Delivered by the Axonify Platform.
At Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), investing in the development of young talent has been a longstanding tradition, with many executives tracing their journey back to their early days at the company. EGA's commitment to nurturing its workforce is exemplified through its National Graduate Training Programme, a rigorous 18-month initiative designed to groom graduates into first-line supervisors.
EGA, the largest industrial company in the UAE outside the oil and gas sector, has consistently attracted top-tier graduates to join its ranks. The program, initially focused on engineering graduates, has evolved to include various disciplines such as Finance, Accounting, Human Capital, Marketing, and Supply Chain, aligning with the organisational needs.
Upskilling and empowering future leaders
This commitment to talent development has not only resulted in long and successful careers within EGA but also garnered recognition externally. In October 2023, EGA's Youth Council received the prestigious "Organisation of the Year for Youth Empowerment" award at the GCC GOV HR Awards 2023. This accolade recognized EGA's efforts in upskilling and empowering future leaders, aligning seamlessly with the National Youth Strategy of the UAE.
One of the keys to EGA's success in youth empowerment is the innovative LEAP programme (Learn. Engage. Adapt. Perform), a key part of EGA's graduate development programme that focuses on leadership and management skills that enables graduates to take on key supervisory roles. The program embraces a blended learning journey through a guided digital learning path delivered by the Axonify platform.
Ownership and accountability
The LEAP program is designed to incorporate pre-reading, experiential learning tasks, virtual evaluations, coaching and in-person workshops. Graduates progress through milestones, earning reward points for completing learning tasks and reinforcement questions. The Axonify platform's reporting dashboards empower coaches and facilitators to track each graduate's progress, identifying missed milestones, coaching needs, and recognizing top performers across different cohorts. This has been a powerful tool to build networks of young talent across the organization empowering them to take ownership and accountability of their learning while supporting one another.
The success of LEAP is through the curated design of content that is current to the new generation, enabling them to adapt and learn through multiple learning methods. The platform ensures a dynamic and interactive learning experience, making education engaging and effective for the tech-savvy generation.
