Was at a SHRM conference recently and noted down some very interesting statistics that were shared.
There are a total of 1 million employees in the Private Sector and 150,000 employees in the Government sector in Oman.
The rate of Omanization in the
- Government sector is close to 97-98%
- PDO has 76% Omanis and 24% expats
- Banks have typically achieved 90% Omanization
- Construction is at 30% Omanization only.
The writing on the wall is clear for employment in Oman – most industries will be 90% Omanized before this decade is out. This also brings up huge opportunities in training in the country for the Omani workforce.
