Workforce Planning and HR Development Section
HR Planning & Recruitment Unit
Strategic Manpower planning is not limited to hiring and retaining talent, but anticipating
the future workforce needs of the University. It is critical to our organizational
growth and stability as it involves three Roles: recruiting, retaining and redeployment
of talent. Linked to the University, the process is much more complicated than it
seems, primarily because it also involves developing skills and competencies of existing
employees to meet market demands, which can change with time. Having a contingency
plan in place in case of any eventuality (talent shortage) is also critical to the
Learning and Performance Unit
At UAEU, continuous learning and development of faculty and staff is a key priority and the University is invested in ensuring that all employees have opportunities to build professional, leadership and technical skills. Learning opportunities aim to build employee knowledge, skills and capabilities. Employees have access to open calendar programs, on-demand learning, highly customized learning journeys and management and leadership development programs that are designed keeping in mind the University s vision and strategy for growth.
Alongside providing learning and development opportunities, the University places
great value in ensuring a performance-based culture of work. Through adherence to
robust performance management protocols including performance reviews, rewards, recognition
and promotion processes, working at the University provides employees with an opportunity
to build truly meaningful and globally recognized careers.
