QIC Group has commenced a knowledge exchange programme with leading insurance company Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Insurance (SJNKI). This, the Qatar-based insurance major said, is part of its Qatarisation strategy and achieving the targets of the Qatar National Vision 2030.  Owing to QIC’s reputation as the leading insurer in the Mena (Middle East and North Africa) region, last year SJNKI sent its staff to QIC headquarters in Doha for enhancing technical skills, exchanging experiences and adopting best practices.

“The trainee was successful at familiarising himself with QIC’s wide spread knowledge in various fields of insurance, digitised retail platforms and communicating with a multi-cultural workforce and customer base in the Middle East,” QIC Group said in a release. About the new initiative, QIC Group chief administrative officer Abdulla al-Mulla said, “This collaborative partnership highlights QIC Group’s reputation and goodwill for which SJNKI has chosen us as the ideal partner. We wish to foster this growing relationship and take to its next stage of its evolution.  It would be our way of cementing the partnership between the two business powerhouses.”

“At QIC Group, we believe in empowering local talent. By implementing the QIC Sompo knowledge exchange programme for our local staff, we wish to empower our national talent by providing multi-faceted approaches to learning. Besides this, they can also gain an overarching experience and understanding of working in a different environment and imbibe the best of both cultures,” al-Mulla added.
