The Client

Maintaining the momentum

The National Housing Company (NHC) was founded to act as the investment arm for the initiatives and programmes of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs and Housing in the real estate, residential, and commercial sectors. NHC is a leader in the real estate development sector and strives to provide quality projects across urban communities with modern designs and various housing solutions at reasonable prices that keep pace with the needs of future generations and improve the quality of life, in partnership with experienced and efficient real estate developers.

NHC has seen great growth in the last few years. To maintain momentum and look ahead, NHC wanted to equip its high-potential employees with skillsets needed for current, and future, leaders.

The Challenge

Preparing Leaders for Future Challenges

How do you sustain company culture, remain a top employer of choice and prepare your company for future challenges amid high and fast growth?

As the organisation expanded, preserving the very culture and values integral to its initial success became crucial. In parallel to this, the need to nurture future leaders and equip high-potential staff to navigate future challenges was a top priority for NHC.

Together with Headspring, NHC created the NHC High Potential Leadership Programme – a programme developed to change mindsets and practical behaviours for upcoming leaders.

The company is growing, KPIs are growing, and expectation from the leadership is super high... the ambition is super high. Shadi Khomeis, Director of Performance and Compliance, National Housing Company, KSA
The Solution

The NHC High Potential Leadership Programme

Headspring partnered with NHC to create the High Potential Leadership Programme, a comprehensive and tailored 6-month solution.

The programme was structured into three modules: solidifying real estate and technical skills, business transformation skills, and leadership skills. Each module was designed to cater to each participant’s unique learning style with coaching and immersive experiences throughout the programme.

It blended face-to-face and online, with in-person sessions in Saudi Arabia and Spain, facilitated by faculty from IE Business School and leading Financial Times journalists.

The Impact

Clarity to Lead

‘One challenge that we have in Saudi Arabia is Talent retention and what we have done is a research among our talents asking them what could make them stand on one of the one of the main primary reasons for people staying in the organization is Learning and Development so we had to pick one of the leading organisations that help us build the right development. The feedback we’ve received from participants has been excellent. The experience has really addressed important needs at NHC’, says Zuhair Almaqhrabi, Chief Human Resources Officer, NHC.
