Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, January 22, 2020 – The Ras Al Khaimah Human Resources Department launched its ‘Human Capital Data Strategy’ plan to streamline processes for setting human resource strategies and policies, support decision-making in RAK Government agencies, and promote a competitive work environment to attract talent in line with UAE Vision 2021.
Dr Muhammad Abdullatif Khalifa, Director General of the RAK Human Resources Department, announced the launch, asserting that the Department’s plans align with the objectives of the ‘2020: Towards the Next 50’ initiative. The plan calls for developing human capital data management and governance procedures, using advanced technologies to administer, analyse, and integrate data. The objective is to develop HR services that improve productivity and ensure optimal investment in human capital.
“The Human Capital Data Strategy will help provide complete data on the rates of Emiratisation at various organisations, current and future jobs across RAK Government entities, and the qualifications set to be vital in the years ahead, facilitating the development of training programmes in the future,” Dr Khalifa added. “The RAK Department of Human Resources is working to fully digitise its services by 2021, registering in 127 indicators related to human capital as of the end of 2019.”
The objectives of the new Strategy include developing human capital data management and governance procedures by implementing various initiatives, such as classifying workforce data, setting policies for providing data to local and federal authorities, and updating the HR indexes guide. The Strategy also seeks to launch four new projects, namely, the Smart Dashboard initiative for monitoring institutional performance, and the statistics and records data exchange network, set to be completed in 2020, in addition to establishing a link with the Statistics Centre (to be completed in 2021), and another link with the institutional performance system of the Sheikh Saqr Programme for Government Excellence.
