Emirates SkyCargo has rolled out a new training programme that aims to tackle workforce shortages by helping employees advance their career.

The training sees 32 members of staff take part in a 15-day programme that includes six sessions, focussed on proactive preparation and strategic optimisation of current and future operations, including the groundbreaking use of artificial intelligence (AI), embedding innovation at every touchpoint and tangible sustainability approaches.

The candidates will graduate with a diploma endorsed by AviationNOW, a member of TIACA.

The 32 employees are split into two groups of 16 and are handpicked from Emirates SkyCargo’s pool of high-performing cargo managers and include both Emirati Nationals as well as other nationalities from the airline’s outstations.

The airline said that the programme would “equip the cargo leaders of tomorrow with the commercial and leadership skillset for future success” as the logistics industry “faces a lack of skilled workforce”.

Nadeem Sultan, senior vice president of cargo planning and freighters, Emirates SkyCargo said: “Implementing this Executive Leadership Programme is a crucial step on our long-term strategic roadmap, ensuring we foster the outstanding talent within our commercial operations to take the helm of Emirates SkyCargo to greater heights in the future.

“Creating an environment of development and providing continuous opportunities for learning contributes to the long tenure of Emirates SkyCargo staff, and helps us attract the best talent in the industry, despite the challenging environment.”

The training is hosted at Emirates headquarters in Dubai and will be a mix of theoretical and practical sessions, “providing candidates with tools to implement in their immediate roles as well as for the next stage of their career”.

Following the first schedule, Emirates SkyCargo plans to extend the training programme to other aspects of the business, including operations.
