Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched a ‘Knowledge Enrichment’ programme to identify their employees’ expertise and encourage them to share it with their colleagues.

The step is part of a strategy to broaden the scope of education, maximise employees accumulated knowledge, and realise the concept of a ‘Learning Organisation,’ the government entity said in a statement.

Commenting on the initiative, chief executive officer of strategy and corporate governance at the RTA, Nasser Abu Shehab, said: “The programme consists of field and professional knowledge tracks; each has three levels corresponding to the cognitive abilities of nominated employees.

“A knowledge assessment card will be used to assess nominees, with points assigned to each criterion fulfilled, such as research capabilities, leadership skills and certificates of relevance.

“After joining the programme, members will be assessed by other criteria including knowledge-sharing efforts and plans, knowledge-related initiatives, qualifications obtained through assessment courses, professional certificates, viable improvement proposals made, and studies published in RTA’s Scientific Research Award or other academic magazines, among others.”
