Rate of Omanization

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.

    Im trying to get the latest omanization targets by sector, can you please let me know where I can get the latest validated information from – latest as of 2010?

    Do you recollect which SHRM conference you are referring to in your post? Would the conference have a website which may have the details I am looking for?

    Would really appreciate it if you could help..
