Human Resource Assistant October 2009 – Feb 2012
LOKMA® Group
About the Company: (Pipe Division) five factories located in various governorates in Egypt with a market share 46% of the local market for water-pipes. The team staff members exceed 1000 employees. (Food Division “Nordsee®”) restaurant chain of German Sea Food with five restaurants in the MENA region.
? Responsible for planning, coordinating, executing and reporting a company-wide “Job Description” Project, in which I worked with 2 of my colleagues to plan the project and execute it over the term of a year. The project involved interviewing and listening closely to technicians (factory workers), administrative staff and managers to best reflect their jobs in the descriptions created. This project was the first step in transforming the HR function in LOKMA® from a transactional department to a strategic planning partner. ? Due to the lack of familiarity of the new hires with the company culture and policies, I presented an induction seminar plan to the HR director and got an approval on it. I carried out the execution of the induction seminar that included a presentation about the company’s history, policies, regulations and a representative from all departments in which the newly hired employees may encounter the need to deal with (i.e. IT department). The project made the newly hired employees cope easily with the LOKMA®’s culture and enhanced their ability to communicate within the company. ? According to the difficulty of hiring technicians with expertise in the pipe division, I started contacting industrial schools to provide student interns. I got the approval of the HR director to sign a contract with one industrial school. My colleague and I started immediately interviewing the students to filter the best out of them. The engineers and old technicians were excited to pass their experience to the young students and we created a future pool of candidates to the company. ? As a result of the LOKMA®’s group business diversity, I got the chance to recruit employees from different aspects, such as production and mechanical engineers, waiters, restaurant’s outlet manager. This broadened my recruitment experience and allowed me to experience many different recruitment channels. ? Responsible to prepare on a monthly basis the turnover analysis and present it in the HR meeting on power point in front of the HR Director.
