|The Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) has earned re-accreditation for a further three years from one of the world’s leading people management accreditation bodies, the Investors in People. The results demonstrate ACK’s commitment to quality through the talent management framework implemented by the Human Resources Department, which is aligned with global best practices.
Founded in 2004, ACK is one of Kuwait’s leading higher education providers with over 400 employees. It has evolved to become a pioneer in providing higher education in the disciplines of Engineering, Aviation, Maritime and Business studies.
ACK is committed to establishing excellence in teaching, expanding its academic environment, and supporting research and innovation. In addition, ACK strives to provide a career nourishing experience for their staff members where career paths are clearly defined, staff recognition and engagement initiatives are utmost and professional development opportunities are identified and implemented.
Investors in People is the international standard for people management, defining what it takes to lead, support and manage people effectively to achieve sustainable results. Underpinning the standard is the Investors in People framework, reflecting the latest workplace trends, essential skills and effective structures required to outperform in any industry. Investors in People enables organisations to benchmark against the best in the business on an international scale.
On this Occasion, CEO of Investors in People, Paul Devoy, said: “We’d like to congratulate the Australian College of Kuwait. Being accredited with “We invest in people” is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places ACK in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”
From his end, the President of ACK, Professor Isam Zabalawi welcomed the news, congratulating the ACK community for its commitment and hard work.
“ACK cannot offer the best learning environment for students unless it has the best team of staff members,” Professor Isam Zabalawi said. “Individual dedication is not enough. There must also be a strong sense of teamwork. The one thing better than a team of champions is a champion team. This conforms with our value of enabling human potential within a culture of care. Retaining this accreditation reaffirms our commitment to attract, retain the best talent, and foster a healthy working environment. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our Human Resources team for this great accomplishment.”
