WorldatWork Significantly Expands Middle East, North Africa Presence

September 23, 2021

Scottsdale, Ariz. — WorldatWork, one of the only non-profit training organizations offering certifications in Arabic, has announced that it is expanding its global footprint in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region through a strategic partnership with Talent at Work LLC a leading education management organization based in the United Arab Emirates.

This expansion is set to enable WorldatWork to better serve and educate its membership and HR and Rewards professionals in the MENA region. It will also allow the organization to continue to support the substantial government and public service institutions it already serves in the region. 

“Talent at Work strongly believes in the vision of WorldatWork to cultivate productive and inspired workforces,” said Dipti Rane, co-founder and partner at Talent at Work. “With the increased drive of nationalization programs, the launch of new legislations to attract and retain talent in the region, and the initiatives for pay equity, only a leading association like WorldatWork can cater to the requirements of all stakeholders.”

Gaelle Lahad, co-founder and partner at Talent at Work, added: “WorldatWork’s MENA team and leadership are dedicated to expanding the association's footprint in the region and leading on the capability development of human capital professionals and leaders. WorldatWork's successful development and delivery of the region's first Arabic HR Certification is a testament to this commitment.”

WorldatWork CEO Scott Cawood, Ed.D, CCP, GRP, expressed his enthusiasm about the expansion: “We are very excited and proud to be so closely aligned with Talent At Work. Our ability to put a WorldatWork team in the United Arab Emirates enables us to better fulfill our goal of developing people and enhancing business growth by directly delivering our premium education solutions and certifications to this incredibly vibrant and important part of the world.”
