(MENAFN - The Peninsula) To reinforce the ambitious Qatarisation process in the private sector, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has set up a special committee.

The panel will monitor companies and establishments whether they are complying with the mandatory 20 percent recruitment of Qataris as per a decision approved by the Cabinet.

The new committee would interact with companies, encourage them to recruit and train Qataris in various fields and help enrol locals in research programmes to hone skills. It would also hold periodical meetings with companies to discuss their commitment to Qatarisation and ensure the workforce of each company represents a minimum of 20 percent Qataris, Al Sharq reported yesterday.

The panel has prepared a five-point strategic plan to be completed in five years and held discussions with 116 companies and establishments in different sectors. As per the five-year plan, the panel would make available data regarding job opportunities in private companies on a dedicated online portal. Opportunities regarding research programmes, scholarships and professional training would also be available for potential Qatari candidates on the portal.

The panel would also ensure the potential Qatari jobseekers are getting career development training from the private sector.

The initiative, the panel believes, will help achieve the Qatar National Development Strategy Plan 2011-2016 to develop the Qatari workforce in the private sector from 5 percent to 15 percent.

The committee would also keep all data on employment opportunities for Qataris in the private sector and this data through the five- year plan would be entered into the country's electronic labour market database expected to be launched soon.

The information would then be made available to all sectors and help establish the labour market at the end of every year. The panel would disclose from time to time what has been achieved, what is lacking and how to fulfil the needs with regard to employing national cadres. Official data suggests an overwhelming majority of Qataris are employed in the public and mixed sectors and their participation in the private sector has been declining.

Data for 2012 shows Qatari employees' participation in the private sector is four percent, down from 10 percent in 1986. Disparities in salaries and perks in the public and private sectors are one of the reasons why the Qatarisation policy is struggling to succeed in the private sector.
