Meshal's learning and development journey in India

In line with the Saudi Vision 2030 aiming to build an economy that provides opportunities for young talent, we would like to introduce Meshal Alrashed, the first Saudi national to go for a six-month international assignment at our Global Technology Centre (GTC) in Bangalore, India and gain experience in the Human Resources field.

Introducing Meshal

Meshal graduated from the Multimedia University in Malaysia and likes to spend his time travelling the world to experience different cultures. He spent an extensive time in the United States of America and visited many of the states. Some of Meshal’s other interests include running and learning about investment. He joined Atkins, a member of the AtkinsRéalis Group, in March 2023. While working with our Middle East Shared Services team in India, he is also pursuing his CIPD qualification.

Meshal’s accomplishments and problem-solving skills 

One of Meshal’s notable accomplishments was the onboarding of 80+ nationals from the Middle East to comply with the Nationalization Programs requirements in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Moreover, he takes pride in his ability to swiftly resolve problems. He recalls an instance where, after hiring 17 employees, the company faced a challenge with providing accommodation during the busy end of year period. However, he promptly devised a solution by arranging their stay for 49 days. Thanks to his efficient problem-solving skills, the employees had a seamless experience on their first day.

At Atkins, we think boldly, proudly, and differently and Meshal demonstrates our qualities as one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies.

Learning and development 

Meshal has been able to keep a good work-life balance and visits new cities in India to learn about their culture and traditions. Known for his jovial nature, he seamlessly adapts to different cultures and embraces the office environment, which his teammates greatly appreciate.

Reflecting on his experience during our India Annual Excellence Awards, which recognizes our best talent at the GTC, he found it exhilarating to witness the entire management and leadership team come together and showcase their talents. The scale of the organization impressed him, highlighting the power of unity among employees at work.

At AtkinsRéalis , we encourage a continuous learning environment where all of our colleagues are encouraged to develop their skills and experience.
