His Excellency Dr Engineer Ali Mohamed Al Khouri, Director General of Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA), the independent federal authority mandated with the execution of the Population Register and the ID card programme, called for exerting greater efforts to train Emirati nationals and inspire them to work for the Authority in various positions.
At a higher management meeting, he underscored the commitment of EIDA to support the Government's efforts to strengthen the national workforce through several initiatives aimed at providing job opportunities for UAE nationals. He urged for stronger partnerships with the Higher Colleges in the UAE to train Emiratis and empower them for technical jobs in the telecommunications and IT sectors at EIDA, as well as other promising careers.
Dr Al Khouri said EIDA is committed to promote the professional and personal development of its employees and to enhance their skills and experiences, through comprehensive training programmes. He called for steps to measure the results of these training programmes and their impact on employee performance and contribution to developing their skills.
Dr Al Khouri instructed executive directors and managers of the Authority and supervisors to oversee the scope of work across all departments, and to focus on the strengths and achievements, while monitoring the challenges that might affect overall performance.
The management team discussed steps recommended by a consulting agency on advanced system applications. The new web-based system assures more transparency, and people who have finalized the registration process can obtain details and information related to the application history, tracking, printing and delivery.
The management team urged all customers to commit to their scheduled appointment time. The Committee also approved the cancellation of 56,000 applications where the applicants did not commit to their second appointment time.
The team reviewed the status of 17,000 applications where customers are expected to visit the offices to amend the data and fill missing details. The applications of those who do not visit the office within five weeks of receiving the intimation to make amends to the data will be cancelled.
