In this regard, Salwa Abdullah, Director of Projects and Programs Department, explained that the Authority adopted direct broadcasting technology to the Club's sessions via the Internet, out of its keenness to reach the largest segment of those interested in Human Resources across the country and abroad. The move also serves the recent direction of the UAE towards working remotely and using modern technologies to ensure business continuity in the Federal Government, and preserve the safety and health of community members in general, and federal government employees in particular, under the current circumstances, she noted.
She said: “A series of HR Club sessions have been held using modern technology, since late last year. These sessions are highly interactive and spark much dialogue, exchange of views and between the keynote speakers and the audience”.
Director of Projects and Programs stressed that this new trend adopted in holding forums and sessions of HR Club, launched by the Authority in 2010 as one of its vital strategic initiatives, will give an opportunity for more specialists and those interested in Human Resources from all work sectors inside and outside the country. “They can follow up sessions from anywhere in the world, using computers or mobile devices, to interact with the Club’s guests, experts and specialists, asking them questions, and obtaining useful answers,” she added.
She concluded that FAHR held 60 forums for the Human Resources Club since its launch, with the participation of more than 11500 HR professionals and interested people at the state level, where a number of important topics were addressed, to ensure keeping pace with the latest global developments in the field of Human capital development, public administration and support services.
