RSS receives ICT green award from IFGICT
The International Federation of Global Information and Communication Technology (IFGICT) presented Ahmed Masadeh, Executive Director of ICT for Development Sector at the Royal Scientific Society (RSS), on behalf of the Royal Scientific Society, a shield of honour in the field of green information technology granted by the federation.
Masadeh highlighted that marking a first for the Middle East and GCC region, the RSS has received the most prestigious award given by the IFGICT, designating it as a “Green Business”.
This certification recognises the achievements of key organisations in raising their ICT infrastructures to world-leading standards, according to a RSS statement.
He also added that the Green Business Certificate of quality was awarded based on a comprehensive ICT audit that was carried out over the course of almost a year, during which time the IFGICT representative in Jordan Metanoia Training and Consulting worked closely with the RSS staff.
“With the full and constant support and collaboration of the RSS management, the process of certification was achieved in record time, despite the difficult and challenging times faced due to the corona pandemic,” said Masadeh.
The process comprised of several phases, starting with internal documentation control, followed by an internal audit of the infrastructure of the RSS Data Centre and each department of the RSS ICT for Development Sector and, finally, the comprehensive training of relevant RSS staff, he said.
Implementing the IFGICT ICT standards helps committed organisations to achieve coherent ICT quality management to enhance organisational development and greatly improve the quality of services and products provided for stakeholders and customers. It also helps to maximise employee satisfaction and skills-development, he added.
At the end of the ceremony, Samah Alafeef, CEO of Metanoia Training and Consulting as a MENA Regional Officer of the IFGICT presented the award to the RSS. Whereas Belal Ayoub, IFGICT Jordan Officer, presented the RSS project team with certificates of appreciation for their outstanding efforts.
