CIPD and United Arab Emirates government reveal promising new collaboration
We certainly highly esteem the CIPD, an organisation responsible for qualifications that many of our experienced consultants hold. Furthermore, we think that the corporate future of the Persian Gulf country of the United Arab Emirates looks promising, particularly as the country already has the Arab world’s second largest economy. For these reasons, we are delighted to have recently learnt that the CIPD and an Emirates federal government entity called the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources – or FAHR for short – have revealed their agreement to operate together to develop human resources in the country otherwise called the UAE.
More information about what the partnership will produce
The collaboration between the two organisations will see them hosting joint events at which human resources professionals will be able to network, educate each other about best practice and learn new ideas for thought leadership. The collaboration will also see the CIPD and FAHR involved in research and data that will be intended to inform current and future practice in the areas of both human resources and learning and development. This seems likely to improve HR in the Emirates like our services in helping to appropriately fill HR jobs Hampshire and other companies offer can lead to improvements in HR in the UK.
HR set to benefit from “a powerful Middle Eastern perspective”
The CIPD’s chief executive, Peter Cheese, has hinted at factors which helped lead to his organisation’s new partnership, having pointed out: “Business is a global enterprise, and the critical determinants of future success will be the capacity to unlock human potential”. He has also expressed optimism about what the partnership will achieve, having declared that his organisation “has set out an ambitious agenda to shape a profession for the future” and the body’s work with the Federal Authority “will bring a powerful Middle Eastern perspective to this important work”.
Meanwhile, the FAHR’s director general, Dr. Abdul Rahman Al Awar, has noted that, as part of its continued endeavours to develop capabilities of employees of the Emirates government, the Federal Authority “is always looking for collaboration and knowledge sharing partners to shape the future of HR in the UAE”. This has led him to enthuse that the organisation has reached “a great milestone by partnering with CIPD, one of the leading professional bodies for HR and people development in the world”. The UK recruitment agency Elite HR certainly hopes that the partnership leads to many amazing things.
