Eng. Jumaa Mubarak Al Junaibi, UAE Ambassador to the Arab Republic of Egypt and Permanent Representative of the UAE to the League of Arab States, said: "The UAE has achieved advanced levels globally and has become a leader in harnessing the latest systems and technological developments tin shaping a bright future for its people and enhance its global competitiveness.
“This would not have been possible without the prudent directives of our wise leadership, represented by His Highness President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.”
He noted that the Federal Government's HR Management Information System (BAYANATI), which is run by the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources, is one of the most innovative and sophisticated strategic systems introduced in the country. It is a qualitative leap in the world of human resources and has provided great services to government institutions and employees, in particular with respect to human resources procedures, that could be competed any time, anywhere through the Smart Application (FAHR).
"We are proud of the progress and development achieved by the UAE in government work, employing the best global technologies and artificial intelligence techniques in the service of its human resources” he said.
HE’s comments came during a special dialogue with HR Magazine, issued monthly by the Authority:
- Ø What is your opinion on the Federal Government's HR Management Information System (BAYANATI)?
I would like to thank the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources for its outstanding efforts in serving the human resources within the Federal Government, whether by enacting relevant laws and regulations or through launching human resources systems in accordance with the best international practices in this regard. No doubt, BAYANATI comes at the top of these innovative systems.
The system enjoys unique features, services and sub-systems, making it very useful and also easy to operate for Federal Government employees in general, and the diplomatic corps of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation deployed in UAE embassies and representations around the world in particular.
- To what extent have smart solutions provided through HR systems helped to serve your esteemed Embassy and how ?
When comparing between now and the past, we discover that there is a big difference in human resources procedures, at least in terms of speed, time, efficiency, effort, and accuracy. Years ago, human resources procedures in embassies and representations were done in paper and through traditional media. Today, all these procedures and transactions are fully automated, thanks to the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources and through BAYANATI System.
In addition, Smart Application (FAHR) has enabled the UAE's diplomatic staff around the world to complete their own HR tranxactions in a simple way at anytime, anywhere around the world.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation is one of the federal agencies that are actively operating BAYANATI System and its electronic HR systems, and heavily investing in it to serve its human resources, especially those working in our representations around the world.
- What are the most prominent systems and services provided by BAYANATI, which are available to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in general, and UAE embassies in particular?
The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has made outstanding efforts to assist the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation with how to properly use BAYANATI System and associated by-systems, taking into consideration the privacy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and adapting many of the regulations with the nature of the work of its staff inside and outside the country. The Ministry is now familiar with electronic systems like Performance Management for Federal Government employees, Smart Reporting, Core HR, which includes many HR procedures, and many additional new services for embassy and consular staff.
About BAYANATI System
Since its inception in 2912, BAYANATI System has been a strategic and vial project that contributes to enhancing the UAE’s strategic position and global competitiveness, as well as acting as a reference and major source of data, statistics and HR indicators in the Federal Government, by helping in automation of all HR procedures including salaries, converting them to self-service, which saves time, effort, and money.
The system helps to effectively manage human resources and provide general and accurate statistics on human resources. Moreover, it is one of the best practices that have been used to serve and develop human resources departments in ministries and federal entities and improve their performance in accordance with international best practices, besides facilitating administrative procedures and financial operations.
Generally speaking, BAYANATI System is a quantum leap in smart government applications to perform important human resource procedures in the Federal Government. It helps automate all HR procedures, including wages and salaries in federal ministries and entities throughout an employee’s service, and enhances human resources performance based on modern concepts and global standards. The system also helps create a unified Federal Government database that supports decision makers and assists in planning processes.
The self-service operated through the system is considered one of the most important features of the system, as it enables the Federal Government employees to complete and follow up their own human resources transactions, thus facilitating the provision of human resources services in ministries and federal bodies.
Self-service allows more time to HR departments to focus on strategic programs and initiatives, leaving routine work to employees to handle on their own. It also provides line managers with smart reports and HR dashboards necessary for monitoring the status of human resources in their departments.
