Evolving HR !

UAE is one the most emerging economies of MENA. As a result Dubai has evolved into a melting pot of cultures. It is a city which is truly cosmopolitan.

Since people from all ethnic and corporate backgrounds have contributed in the corporate sector the result is quite evident in terms of all company policies and practices.

UAE based MNCs are adapting the best practices in all sectors either it is HR,IT or Business Development. Being in HR I can thoroughly see and feel these changes.

Corporates in UAE are no more manpower entities they are now talent development hubs.HR departments has grown from mere Visa and Admin teams to Talent Management teams.HR teams are focusing on introducing best HR Practices which are complying to UAE labor law. Corporates are highly involved in Employee Engagement to get the employee voice across all levels. Companies are not only hiring talent but they are focused to retain and develop the talent.

The role of HR Manager has evolved into HR Business Partner which is like HR advisor to business. Partnering with business in terms of manpower planning, employee engagement, trainings and talent development. HRBPs help businesses to identify & develop high potential employees (HIPOs) and implementing best industry practices.

More power to all.
