Tamkeen supports more than 70 Bahrainis at Jasmi’s Corporation

Manama, June 3 (BNA): The Labour Fund Tamkeen announced a strategic partnership with Jasmi’s Corporation to support Bahraini employment and career development.

 Jasmi’s Corporation has created job opportunities for 21 Bahrainis across various departments, with the help of Tamkeen’s National Employment Programme.

Tamkeen’s Wage Increment Programme will benefit 52 existing Bahraini employees with salary increments. The collaboration will help bolster the local workforce and enhance career opportunities within the renowned quick-service restaurant chain. 

Khalid AlBayat, the Growth Officer at Tamkeen, emphasised the authority’s priority on making Bahraini nationals the primary choice for employment.

“We support enterprises that create employment opportunities and career growth for local talent. This will help Jasmi’s Corporation enhance employee motivation and productivity while fostering a supportive work environment and contributing towards a more robust business ecosystem,” AlBayat said.

 Through our cooperation with local partners, we remain committed to nurturing sustainable growth and development, supporting all sectors including the hospitality and restaurants, which topped all economic sectors in terms of growth rate in 2023 and contributed 1.8% of real GDP.” 

Adnan Al Ameen, Vice President at Jasmis Corporation, underscored their commitment to empowering Bahraini talent as a Bahraini organisation that began as a small family business.

“We are grateful for Tamkeen’s support, which strengthens our own Bahrainisation efforts while enabling us to create new job opportunities for Bahrainis. This will help us sustain the growth of our business while rewarding our existing high performers,” he added.

Jasmi’s Corporation has dominated the food services industry since its establishment in 1986, with 50 strategically located stores across the Kingdom, including sister companies such as Le Chocolat, Jio Chicken, Marash, and Bayt Al Ameen. The corporation continues to expand its reach while contributing significantly to the local economy. 

Tamkeen’s support is strategically aligned with its 2024 objectives, which are centered around driving economic impact and bolstering the private sector. This approach is built upon three key pillars: increasing economic participation by creating employment opportunities for new entrants, expanding career development opportunities available to the Bahraini workforce, and further developing the private sector by supporting enterprises, boosting productivity, and adopting the latest technologies.
