Training Café International (TCI) is urging local companies to increase their investment in human resource management. During his presentation at Dubai’s second human resource conference Marc Christiaens, managing director of TCI, highlighted the need for management development and succession.

The local emiratisation drive is also increasing the pressure on companies to investment in human resource management.

“Emiratisation and GCC nationalisation projects drive the need for comprehensive skills and training management software,” says Christiaens.

“Training Café software can be a key asset for anybody who is working to promote national talent and reduce the reliance of expatriate managers in GCC countries,” he adds.

With competition in the local market intensifying, organisations must make a concerted effort to manage training and skills development. Local industry leaders also reminded attendees that they must manage their human resources.

"Career development, succession planning, training and development creates a positive climate and ensures employee loyalty and commitment," says Anis Al Jallaf, managing director & CEO of Emirates Bank Group.

Mohammed Al Abbar, director general of Dubai's Department of Economic Development & chairman of Emaar Properties, adds, “the key to a country's success lies in its effective use of Human Resources. Human capital should be transformed into human assets. Talent management is more important."
