The Emirati Human Resources Development Council in Dubai and Emirates Global Aluminum (EGA) have announced a collaborative agreement in order to boost Emiratization in the industrial sector.

This partnership marks a significant commitment to fostering the integration of UAE Nationals into the workforce and contributing to the nation’s strategic sectors.

Through this agreement, the Emirati Human Resources Development Council will provide EGA with qualified UAE National candidates for its training programs and vacant positions, aiming to advance the development of Emirati talent within the industrial sector.

“Emiratization has been a key priority at EGA for decades, with attracting the best local talent as the foundation of our global competitiveness. We are determined to increase our Emiratization even further and look forward to working closely with the Human Resources Development Council to make this ambition a reality.”

This initiative will support EGA’s further progress in Emiratization. EGA already has one of the highest Emiratization rates of any major company, when accounting for the high number of blue-collar roles in heavy industry.

His Excellency Eng. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansoori, Chairman of the Emirati Human Resources Development Council, elaborated on the significance of the partnership, stating that, “Our collaboration with Emirates Global Aluminum is a testament to our unwavering commitment to Emiratization and the strategic development of our national workforce. By aligning our resources, we not only aim to fill immediate positions but also to nurture a generation of Emirati professionals equipped to lead the industrial sector’s journey towards innovation and global competitiveness.”

“The council is proud to contribute to the UAE’s economic growth by enabling Emiratis to become a strategic pillar of its journey, delivering on the vision of our wise leadership. This partnership embodies a critical component of our mission to empower UAE Nationals to excel in crucial economic sectors, ultimately securing our nation’s long-term prosperity,” Al Mansoori added.
