Millennium Hotels and Resorts has launched a new development programme entitled ‘TooMooH’, which translates literally as ‘ambition’. TooMooH is a fast track development program designed for selected National colleagues with the potential to handle managerial positions upon completion of the program. This powerful initiative was designed to support, train and empower the talent of GCC Nationals looking to develop a lengthy career within the hospitality sector. TooMooH is a comprehensive programme with four levels focusing on the development of fresh graduates, executives and leaders.
“TooMooh has been created to promote and empower national talent in the GCC Countries where Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA operate. I firmly believe it is an excellent opportunity to give back to the community where we are present. We are looking forward to contributing to the vision of GCC countries by unlocking the potential of nationals and enabling them to be a driving force of the country’s economic development.” – Ali Hamad Lakhraim Alzaabi, President & CEO, Millennium Hotels & Resorts Middle East.
As a first step TooMooH will launch the Executive Development Programme (TEDP). This is a fast-track development programme for National colleagues between levels 4-6. With the potential to assume managerial positions upon successful completion. The program takes 18 months to complete, in addition to 5 months’ work experience in the earmarked role. The program is split into 4 quadrants or milestones; Mentoring support from the senior management/General Manager, Assigned Off-Job Training programs for all the milestones, Cross Training in other operational departments and Cross Exposure in UAE.
“We believe in investing in our local people by giving Omanis the opportunity to ‘move up’ within the hospitality industry and actively grow in their career. In a country such as Oman, hospitality is a deep-rooted cultural characteristic; it can be found in every home. It seems only natural, therefore, for Omani Nationals to be at the forefront of Tourism, Hospitality and Hotel Management in The Sultanate.” Luca Medda, Cluster General Manager, Grand Millennium Hotel Muscat.
