The strategic partnership between ZHO and Al Masaood Group was born in 2018 with the launch of the Design Studio project, a production line, with the support and sponsorship of Al Masaood Group represented by Al Masaood Prestige, with the aim of empowering people of determination in society. The partnership continues successfully, and has employed 100 people with mental disabilities at Al Masaood Prestige in the Design Studio, under the supervision of highly-qualified trainers. The number of the partnership’s workshops is five; two in Abu Dhabi with 51 students, two in Al Ain with 38, and one in Al Dhafra with 11.

His Excellency Abdullah Abdul-Ali Al-Humaidan, ZHO’s Secretary General, asserted that ZHO works on implementing strategies to recruit people of determination to jobs in the public and private sectors in order to integrate them into the labor market, and ensure an increase in the number of its employees in various sectors.

“The people of determination have made a new success, as their presence in all fields has become a reality after the government and its institutions adopted several strategies and initiatives to develop the skills of various categories of determination in order to build a better future for them and their families. This allows them to be self-reliant, and expresses new levels of integrating them into society in a healthy and effective manner,” His Excellency said.

His Excellency thanked Al Masaood Group that is characterized by excellence and social responsibility, and Al Masaood for Supplies and Petroleum Services LLC for that step by supporting, and Al Masaood Energy LLC, for supporting and enhancing ZHO’s efforts to integrate its employees into the labor market through the two new workshops. He voiced his pride in the hard work of ZHO’s employees of determination to achieve the goal that sought by ZHO of empowering and integrating its members into society and supporting their positive contribution to the development process of the country.

He noted that the goal ZHO seeks in cooperation with Al Masaood Group and its companies, including Al Masaood Energy LLC, is to create job opportunities at the private sector for its employees of determination by honing the skills of developing the production of vocational rehabilitation workshops in order to continue keep going in the production market and competition in the local market by providing products bearing The Bee brand.

For his part, His Excellency Ahmad Rahma Al-Masaood, Vice Chairman of Al-Masaood Group, said that the cooperation between the Group and ZHO is a model of successful cooperation between institutions, government entities and the national private sector, which comes in implementation of the government directives to provide equal and fair employment opportunities for citizens of determination in the private sector, and their right to work where disability does not constitute an obstacle in their way to run for jobs.

Al Masaood Energy LLC rushed to take part in the implementation of the government's directives of integrating people of determination into the labor market, by providing a suitable environment in the workplace to facilitate their movements, as well as financial support thanks to their distinctive capabilities in the development of the private sector’s businesses. Al Masaood is honored to support ZHO’s efforts by equipping the new two sewing workshops within the vocational rehabilitation workshops, and investing in 31 sewing machines to support the workforce and the initiative to employ talented individuals from ZHO, and ensure that they get paid competitive salaries for their exceptional skills.
