It was a hectic 2017 for the IMS team – they may have a lot on their hands but new opportunities arose and as usual, they were up to the challenge.
The team were lucky to introduce a new member into the new department, Yousif Abdulaziz. Yousif, who worked his way from our CMC, to Facilities Management, then joining the IMS team as the IMS & CMC Support last year, proved he was more than capable.
To commend his hard work and efforts, Senior HSE Specialist & IMS Lead Auditor, Mohammed Al Masajjin awarded Yousif with a Winning Hearts certificate recently and showed his praise.
“For the last ten months, Yousif has been extremely professional and is a great team player. He approaches all his work with interest and is a great collaborator with different departments, aiding with the enhancement and efficiency of our work,” he said.
He carried on to explain how Yousif has been doing an excellent job with Health, Safety and Environment (HSE), especially with our report consolidation, external certification auditing, EWA Energy Audit screening, as well as HSE related matters including the HSE Week.
“He is always committed to any job he is assigned to and works very hard to cover inspections in all our Bahrain based locations,” said Mohammed. “Yousif is a great employee and is even involved in HSE training, sharing knowledge and conducting all our inductions. He follows up with suppliers regularly and departments to close all pending issues – improving our processes and continuing with development in the way we do things.”
Moreover, as many of you are aware of our PIP (Productivity Improvement Programme) series in Missing Links, the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that the participants are on track and follow up is due where required, takes a lot of time, effort and work. Amaal Raheem has proved she is capable and has played an important part in overlooking the programme and was given a Winning Hearts award by Head of IMS, Security & Admin, Suttish Boodoo.
“She has ensured all aspects of the programme are monitored and implemented by reviewing projects to ensure alignment with business objectives,” said Suttish. “She scheduled bi-monthly meetings which served as a platform to discuss all project updates, reviews, identify and address challenges and facilitate collaboration.”
As of November 2017, the PIP participants have gone above and beyond to ensure their projects have been implemented successfully and have saved the company a substantial amount of money.
