Established pursuant to Law no. 7 of 2015 issued by the late Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The Abu Dhabi Human Resources Authority (HRA) is a government body with independent entity and full legal autonomy. The HRA reports to the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, and was created to replace the Abu Dhabi Tawteen Council, the Civil Services Sector, and the Abu Dhabi Government Leadership Centre at the Council’s General Secretariat.
The establishment of HRA helps to fulfil the aspirations of the wise leadership of Abu Dhabi, which aims to promote the Emirate’s human resources system, through an institution that is entrusted with the design and development of a unified human resource policy for Abu Dhabi’s public sector.
According to its legal mandate, HRA aims at developing the needed legislation and strategies for the development and consolidation of practices, controls, standards, and regulations for human resources management and Emiratization within Abu Dhabi. This would contribute to reducing disparities in the implementation of human resource methodologies and processes across local government entities. It will also improve the performance of human resources management to ensure the achievement of development-related aspirations.
