Integrated career support
Committing to continually improving the recruitment process at Borouge, we launched a new Career Portal in February 2011 to attract the most creative and innovative talents in the world’s markets. We have also developed an integrated Talent and Competency Framework that recognises talent and develops individuals to their fullest potentials in their area of specialisation, using world-class benchmarked target competencies and proficiency levels.
During 2012, we implemented several initiatives to improve the development of our employees, such as the Competency Framework Project (CFP) and the Irtiqa’a programme. The CFP was established to provide a competency-based HR management system through the implementation of competency profiling, a competency assurance process, and career path and development guides. The Irtiqa’a programme builds a coaching relationship between the line managers and the employees.
Diverse career opportunities
To further develop the competency and professional skills of our employees, we offer them various opportunities such as diverse combinations of on-the-job coaching and mentoring, world-class training courses and assignments with Borouge businesses or projects abroad. Such initiatives have resulted in a high performing, innovative, competent and motivated workforce.
Leading compensation and benefits
To attract, motivate and retain our talented workforce, Borouge has adopted a progressive market-driven approach to continuously benchmark its compensation and benefits model against the key players in the market. Our compensation package includes an attractive base salary, allowances and benefits that are structured to recognise good performance and provide employees and their families a quality work-life balance and financial security.
Borouge scholarship programme

As part of Borouge's commitment to corporate social responsibility, we established an Emiratisation strategy to attract and develop UAE national graduates from schools, colleges and universities, with the aim of stimulating them to pursue careers in the UAE's growing petrochemical industry.
The UAE National Development Department provides continuous support to UAE Nationals in order to help them achieve their full potential at each stage of their careers. It aims to enhance their professional growth and promote a performance-based culture anchored in the Company values. We also offer them a study leave to continue their studies whilst promoting better opportunities in their professional career.
For employment positions in Ruwais and Abu Dhabi City, UAE, priority is given to residents living within close proximity. Consequently, in line with our Emiratisation strategy and based on the 2012 employment data, our goal is to have 75% of all positions to be Emiratised by 2017.
