    1. No, Khimji Ramdas directors are Omani nationals and are the 5th generation here in the country. Their forefathers and they themselves have contributed immensely to the growth of the Oman Economy; as well as in providing employment opportunities to Omanis – their countrymen – presently we have almost 1800 Omanis working in Khimji Ramdas. We appreciate your frank comment and are grateful for providing us an opportunity to share these important details.

      1. 1800 is big Number ,but during my reading to this blog i found that all managers and senoir level are indian not omani most of omani are drivers and low level employee .
        omani should get oppertunity even its thire country ?????????

      2. Dear hi-oman Author,

        Thank you for writing to us

        We appreciate your views and comment posted in our blog. In the same breath, it is our responsibility to take this opportunity to clarify a few misconstrued notions about KR as an organization and its Omanization policy.

        KR employs Omani Nationals across its business divisions at various levels that include, Senior and Middle Management and Support function roles. Over the years, the group has groomed or directly recruited nationals to take on leadership positions. Just a Few examples are Group Captain. Mansoor Nasser Salim Al Rashdi – Senior HR and Industrial Relations Manager who runs the programs for recruiting qualified cadre for the group. Brigadier Majid Hilal Al Ismaily, who is the Chief Operating Officer for Automobile and Defense Projects, Mr. Khalid Mohammed Hudaib Al Riyami, who heads the Electrical Division among many others.

        As one of the strongest and oldest home-grown corporate brands in the Sultanate, Khimji Ramdas Group prides itself as a ‘People Power Company’. It’s been our earnest commitment to make a positive difference to the lives of people around us. Training and education is the need of the hour to raise the employability of manpower; and KR has been actively pursuing this policy of continuous development to raise skill levels of its Omani employees.

        Therefore, as much as we do respect your notions, we would sincerely like to correct this perspective. Omanis at all levels are an integral part of the company, they hold positions of authority, and the company is investing in the future of the youth of Oman, by grooming young new entrants to take on higher levels of responsibility.

        We are thankful for your writing to us and giving us an opportunity to counterbalance your views.
