The event was attended by 100 leaders from ministries and federal entities, and was moderated by Mrs. Maryam Al Zarouni, Director of the HR Planning Department at the Authority, in the presence of speakers representing PwC.
The Director of HR Planning said: “The Digital Fitness Initiative comes as part of the Authority’s efforts to help federal government employees develop their knowledge and skills, be aware of their digital level and prepare better for the digital and technological world. The app contains nearly 300 educational materials, consists of multiple digital items to help employees enhance their knowledge in the subjects that develop their knowledge and skills.
She said: The DFA app provides the ability to assess digital fitness of users, understand their current digital capabilities, and develop these capabilities through a learning path that leads to more development by helping them to re-evaluate their digital skills on a weekly basis.”
She called on the Federal Government employees to take advantage of the benefits offered by fitness app, which is available on electronic stores, and the Authority website - e-learning portal "Al-Mawrid". She explained that the app will be a major catalyst in the Authority’s digital transformation journey, which will help all of us stay connected to an ever changing world.
Regarding activation of the digital fitness app, she explained the steps which begin with downloading the app from one of the stores into smartphones, and then creating an account to activate. The last thing is to take the test and assessment. The user can view his results, develop the fitness plan that best suits his needs, and finally start using the app to increase his knowledge.
