Mosanada is a provider of end-to-end property services to the Aspire Zone and Qatar Olympic Committee, delivering hard and soft FM services to prestigious sporting venues throughout the State of Qatar. One of Mosanada’s key objectives is to attract and retain the right people to support the growth of the company. To achieve this Mosanada is committed to developing its in-house training capability whilst working with external training providers to create a company that has a reputation for excelling in the provision of FM services. To support this objective Mosanada has achieved BIFM Recognised Centre status for training, and now has the in-house capability to deliver levels 2 and 3 (supervisor level) qualifications internally and mentor staff up to level 7 (Senior Management appointments). Mark Cooke, Chief Operating Officer at Mosanada stated: “Gaining this accreditation is a significant milestone for Mosanada, as it gives staff the opportunity to progress their career within the business against a structured internally recognised framework.
