BUSINESS IN Dubai Knowledge Village

Increased focus on the criticality of the HR work in the Middle East is driving development in the HR administration providers section, with as of late reviewed organizations expressing that the main 4 difficulties confronting their organization’s execution incorporate Leadership Development and Pipeline, Creation of High Performance Culture, Talent Management and Talent Acquisition. This increased focus on HR is further exhibited by recent data indicating that all through the GCC, the most elevated pay raises in 2010 were attributed to the HR function.

Over the next ten years, this focus is expected to increase significantly as the region’s high numbers of youth enter the workforce while aggressive nationalization targets, strong GDP growth and the existing gap between academic programs and practical skill sets continue. Such trends have been identified by key international players across the HR services spectrum including recruiters, training companies, testing facilities and HR consultancies who have already established a strong presence in the region.
