This comes as part of the ongoing mission of making Bahrainis the employee of choice in the labour market. The program will provide wage support for Bahraini job seekers and fresh new graduates registered within the Ministry of Labour and Social Development for a period of up to 36 months.  Tamkeen will provide several support programs, which includes:

The Business Development program provides an opportunity for enterprises that have specific goals for development, and a clear plan of how to utilize Tamkeen’s support to achieve those goals. This allows the enterprise to improve its performance, and at the same increase its contribution towards the national economy, while also creating more job opportunities for Bahrainis.

The program provides grants that cover a proportion of the items and services needed by the enterprise, in addition to supporting the human capital by increasing the wages of Bahraini employees.
