Yesterday’s CSA Ceremony was the second to be held by QP this year to honour its long-serving employees. It followed the first CSA Ceremony, which was held last week, to recognize a total of 225 employees who have already served between 20 and 40 years with the corporation.

In addition, as part of this year’s CSA Ceremony, a total of 529 QP employees will also be receiving Certificates of Appreciation for having been employed with the corporation for the past 5 years.

Organised by QP’s Public Relations and Communications Department, in partnership with the Human Capital Directorate, the annual CSA Ceremony was held at the convention hall of the new QP Headquarters in West Bay, and is considered as an important way by which QP recognises the valuable contribution of its employees in the corporation’s continued growth and in the continued development of Qatar’s oil and gas industry.
