The National Human Resources Development and Employment Authority (TANMIA) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) had exceeded its 2003 targets for its employment drive. In its third year of operations, TANMIA achieved a success rate of over 100 percent in providing National jobseekers with employment, according to a press release.
In the area of training, TANMIA achieved a rate of 113.2 percent in 2003, surpassing its target, by successfully training a total of 1,076 trainees. During the same year, TANMIA served 6,563 jobseekers by classifying them into various job categories and assigning the relevant training and orientation programs.
TANMIA is stepping up its skills development program by collaborating with Canadian and British consultancy houses, in an effort to develop more advanced tools to assess job seekers' skills and develop career guidance capabilities of global standards.
Tanmia has been conducting several studies on the UAE job market and its requirements. The Center for Labor Market Research and Information, which is run by TANMIA, has produced an important body of work to guide the authorities in formulating long-term strategies in order to correct the imbalance in the labor market and provide a strong economic foundation for the country. — (menareport.com)
