April 8, 2022

OSHRM – Muscat – The Omani Society for Human Resource Management (OSHRM) and WorldatWork signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on March 30 in Muscat, the Omani capital, inking a milestone partnership for the provision of human resources services.

In the presence of esteemed members of the OSHRM board, human resource and business leaders, and both companies’ senior representatives, Dr. Ghalib Al Hosni – Chairman of OSHRM, and Mr. Mihai Popoaca – President of WorldatWork, signed the MoU, hence reconfirming both parties’ commitment to best-in-class Rewards practices in Oman.

The MoU is set to provide OSHRM and the HR community in the Sultanate with the education, leadership, and community needed to build and nurture their Human Capital capabilities and Rewards best practices.

A roundtable discussion on Rewards best practices preceded the MoU. The audience shared their insights on the latest practices in leveraging Rewards practices within organizations to drive performance and employee engagement.

In his address, Dr. Ghalib Al Hosni noted that “this partnership is between two associations with a common mission and purpose. We are looking forward to this partnership to contribute to cultivating inspired, engaged, productive, and committed workers in effective and rewarding workplaces in the Sultanate of Oman.”

On behalf of WorldatWork, Mihai Popoaca commented on the signing: “it is our pleasure to partner with OSHRM – the voice of Human Resources Management in Oman. We are committed to supporting OSHRM’s mission to build and nurture the growing HR capacity in the Sultanate, provide guidance, technical knowledge, and access to global best practices to the growing body of professionals, and to industries.”

WorldatWork, one of the only non-profit organizations offering global certifications in Arabic, expanded its footprint last October, reaching the MENA region through Talent at Work, aiming to expand its presence and support its membership base and certification holders in the region.


The Omani Society for Human Resource Management (OSHRM) is proud to be the first and only entity in Oman to establish a platform of excellence in Human Resources with members from both public and private sectors. OSHRM, as it stands today, is legally recognized as an independent Not-for-profit Professional Society in accordance with Oman’s regulations on 21st May 2014. Since then, OSHRM has become one of the most active NGOs in Oman, expanding its networks with business partners, including the government, corporate sector, other NGOs, individual professionals, and volunteer groups in Oman and internationally.
