Members from the Dubai Government Excellence Programme (DGEP) held a seminar on innovation for employees of the Dubai Health Authority. The seminar, which took place at the Rashid Medical Library, was held to raise awareness about the new DGEP initiative on innovation.
The seminar was attended by senior officials including HE Ahmed Al Nuseirat, Coordinator General, DGEP and HE Khalid Al Sheikh Mubarak, Deputy Director-General of the DHA.
As part of this initiative, known as Ibda, the DGEP will host seminars across all 27 government entities in Dubai to educate employees on how they can participate in this initiative.
Al Nuseirat said, "The aim of this initiative is to motivate employees across all government departments to foster a culture of innovation and to come up with ideas that will maximize efficiencies."
Al Mubarak said, "At the DHA, we encourage all our employees to think creatively and such initiatives provide a platform for them to further develop their skills."
Al Nuseirat added that once this seminar is held across all government entities, the next step will be to create an e-innovation club for government employees who would like to exchange their ideas using an online forum.
Moreover, seminars and conferences will be held over the course of this year to encourage government employees to channelize their creativity.
After due assessment of all the innovative ideas submitted by the government entities and its employees, the best will be selected.
The categories include: Most innovative idea, innovative employee, innovative leader and innovative department.
Engineer Ola Mubaydeen, Senior Manager at DGEP, said, "The selection will take place after all the criterions are met. While participation is not obligatory, it is recommended because the aim of the programme is to enhance the culture of innovation within the government sectors of Dubai."
Fauzia Al Mas, who works in the medical fitness department at the DHA, said, "I am keen to participate in such programmes which will help enhance my skills and expertise and I would like to thank the DGEP for providing me with this opportunity."
