• Dr. Omran: Encouraging FRA’s employees to practice sports will bring more positive energy
Dr. Mohammed Omran – FRA’s Chairman and his deputies inaugurates this morning a sports hall at the Authority’s headquarters in Smart Village. This step will create a positive and decent work environment for the employees and will foster loyalty among them.
FRA’s Chairman emphasizes that the new sports law states that that ministries, governmental bodies, units of local administrations, public authorities shall establish facilities necessary to provide sports services for its employees. In addition, Article no. 62 of the new sports law stipulates that all ministries, public bodies and companies shall allocate appropriate time for its employees to practice sports without discrimination, while providing sports programs that commensurate with the work’s nature, provided that exercising shall not be within the normal working hours.
Dr. Omran states that FRA’s Code of Conduct has imposed great duties and responsibilities on the employees, due to the sensitivity of the field in which they operate. In addition, FRA’s Code of Conduct sets out basic principles that its staff and management shall abide by. On the other hand, it gives great attention to the human resources and its multiple needs, including the need and the right to practice sports that will bring more positive energy.
Therefore, there was a keenness to provide a specialized trainer to supervise the exercise and the use of sports equipment in the gym with the allocation of days and special timings for females and others for males only.
Also, Dr. Omran noted that since the beginning of this year, the Authority has become a key partner of the UN Global Compact, becoming the first Egyptian governmental body to join the initiative and adopt its ten principles as basic principles, which are based on human rights, labor and environment. He added that FRA exerted more efforts to apply sustainability at the institution level, giving priority attention to the social dimension and human resources and exercising due diligence to improve the work environment on an ongoing basis.
