Recruitment of employees plays a major role in determining the performance of any organization, company or industry in the business world. As a result, the manner in which the process is carried out is paramount and may have a significant impact on the overall output of the human resource department.
Due to the diverse nature of business, companies adopt various recruitment processes, which meet their needs or are inclined towards their goals and objectives. This paper will focus on the recruitment process at Abu Dhabi and its overall impact on the industry. The analysis will also focus on the importance of embracing a proper recruitment process in any business organization. Furthermore, suggestions will be put forth with regard to solving the recruitment problem at Abu Dhabi.
This project focuses on the recruitment process of Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority, a government-controlled company in UAE. In detail, it will cover the impact of the faulty process and how to make it better. The project will also describe how ADAA will benefit from the project, including a streamlined hiring process. After the study, I hope to gain insights into benefits of a proper recruitment process. One of the skills, which I will use, is internet research techniques.
Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority is an independent corporate body, operating in the United Arab Emirates’ capital city, Abu Dhabi. Its formation was based on the Law No.14 for 2008. Under this formation, ADAA established its objectives, which are core in the execution of its mandate in the country. Among these objectives, ADDA ensures that all the resources and funds allocated to public firms are collected, managed and utilized in an economic, effective and efficient manner (ADAA 1).
Additionally, the firm ensures that all public entities submit accurate financial reports, which are compliant with the country’s applicable laws, regulations and rules. The last objective of ADAA is to promote transparent and accountable management of all public entities in the country as provided by the law. Importantly, these objectives form the baseline for the functioning of the firm, since they lay the foundation for its role and relevance in UAE’s public sector.
Functions and Duties of Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority
As mentioned above, the functions and roles of ADAA are enshrined in Law No. 14 of the year 2008. According to the law, ADAA has a wide range of responsibilities revolving around the operations of public entities in United Arab Emirates (ADAA 1). For instance, it is tasked with auditing consolidated financial statements of companies.
Besides this subjection of the government’s financial statements, ADAA monitors performance within the public sector through varying approaches and strategies. In this regard, it examines the effectiveness and efficacy of subject entities in order to augment economic stability.
Moreover, compliance of subject entities with the country’s rules, laws and regulations is a major concern. Consequently, ADAA is mandated to implement this compliance within the public sector. Through this process of coordination, it examines violations among subject entities and recommends appropriate corrective legal actions. This is achieved through information given to subject entities via constant advice.
Notably, ADAA offers relevant training to graduate trainees from national universities in the country. This ensures that young professionals are equipped with skills, which are necessary in the management of public institutions in the country. Lastly, the body conducts investigations into complaints of non-compliance, launched by customers of individual entities or from the entire public (ADAA 1).
In achieving its goals, which were discussed in the previous segment, ADAA is guided by four strategic goals as follows: Firstly, ADAA augments excellent standards of transparency, accountability and governance to ensure that funds allocated to public entities are used effectively.
It also aims at promoting good performance through support of public entities and ensures that accurate data is properly utilized during decision-making. Through constant research and development, IDAA enhances good practices among subject entities. This lowers the degree of violation and increases the ability of entities to comply with existing rules and regulations. By targeting undergraduate students for training, ADAA’s strategy aims at developing human capital in the country.
For practical realization of these goals, ADAA has won the trust of UAE’s government and its subject entities as the main advisor in financial matters. In addition, it leads the public sector by not only monitoring other firms but also emerging as a role model of performance and good practices. Lastly, ADAA promotes communication with subject entities through sharing of relevant information (ADAA 1).
Training at ADAA
Based on the role it plays in the management and monitoring of UAE’s public firms, the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority adopted a training program in 2009 through the introduction of the ADAA training center (ADAA 1). The main aim of establishing the center was to give advantage to UAE nationals by equipping them with knowledge and skills that were deemed necessary for them to fit in the current business environment.
To achieve this target, the center engaged in partnership with other training institutions to offer state the art courses like Certified Public Accountant exams and Certified Internal Auditor exams, aimed at promoting their career advancement in adding value to the economy of Abu Dhabi. In the understanding of the functions of the training center, it is essential to double emphasize its target of nurturing auditors and accountants to become future business leaders.
Like any other firm in the world, ADAA has strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, some of which will be discussed in this segment. The following table gives the SWOT analysis of the company:
StrengthGovernment support- the government supports ADAA in executing its mandate
Legally recognized- Law No. 14, ADAA allows ADAA to discharge its duties effectively without being manipulated by individual interferences or interests

WeaknessesHiring process- the process takes long, more than six months and causes unnecessary costs

ThreatsPrivate auditing and accounting firms-the possibility of private auditing rising to overtake ADAA
