JHAH Chief Human Resources Officer Represents Saudi Arabia

Dubai, October 18 - Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) represents Saudi Arabia on the LinkedIn MENA Talent Awards Digitization Transformation Panel.

Moutaz Mashhour, CHRO, JHAH, shared an empowering philosophy of investing in people in order to leverage the benefit of emerging technologies.

The LinkedIn Talent Awards executive panel tackled the big questions of digital transformation, the threat it poses to existing jobs, the skills gap in the UAE and the potential for our lives and economies to be enriched by the emerging technologies.

A recent World Economic Forum (WEF) prediction stated that 5M jobs will be lost to technology by 2020, naturally this generates trepidation within governments and workers alike. However, this negative perspective was challenged by the optimistic outlook of the LinkedIn executive panel, which included: H.E Abdullah Bin Toq, Director General at the Executive Office of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; H.E Wessam Lootah, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Smart Government; Ahmad Al Mulla, Senior Vice president at Emirates Global Aluminum, and Moutaz Mashhour, Chief Human Resources Officer at John Hopkins Aramco Healthcare. The panelists drew on their experiences of how technology has enhanced human interaction and the greater good.

Moutaz reflected on how at JHAH, pharmacy and surgical services have elevated patient safety and satisfaction through advanced robotic technology, and the benefit of a leadership mindset committed to growing and developing talent, injecting resources to nurture outstanding performance.

Commenting on the panel, Ian McIlwain, LinkedIn Learning Solutions, Dublin, said, “we need to think of the digital transformation in terms of developing individuals. It is not only that jobs will disappear, but that jobs will change. I enjoyed hearing Moutaz Mashhour’s philosophy of developing people in order to bridge the skills gap and therefore intentionally hiring people who have the capacity to be adaptable and continuously learning to keep up with the pace of change.”

This perspective aligns with the kingdom’s National Transformation Program, Vision 2030 drive to empower innovation and the fulfillment of unmet potential within the population.

Healthcare is at the forefront of adopting and implementing innovation and technology. This spans the introduction in recent years of robotic surgery and the growing sophistication of electronic health records. JHAH is currently in the process of introducing a holistic electronic health record, a domain that has recently announced progress in incorporating artificial intelligence in order to enhance the physician interface applications.

JHAH has over 48,000 followers on LinkedIn, who engage not only to connect with job opportunities but also to take part in a dialogue covering workplace culture, professional growth and the future of healthcare. To see more, visit Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare on LinkedIn.
