Recently company lost its Asst Manager to a competitor and was forced to make an attractive offer to Mohammed Al Amri who has been a top performer at Al Nasr Ceramic Tiles. However, the compensation offered to Mohammed is 20% higher (otherwise, Mohammed would not take the offer) than Imad Al Balushi- Manager Sales who looks after the Dhofar region. Imad has been with the company for the last 7 years and has been a good performer.
