TECOM Investments' Education Cluster announced that SHL, the global leader in talent measurement solutions, has established its regional headquarters at Dubai Knowledge Village (DKV), the region's premier destination for human resource management.
These solutions help organisations simplify the process of finding the right person for the right job, thus saving significant time and money.
Reinforcing its global leadership, SHL's operations in Dubai will seek to tap in to emerging growth opportunities within the area of talent assessment. Additionally, it will help the company focus on its customer priorities across the UAE and the Middle East.
Dr Ayoub Kazim, Managing Director, TECOM Investments' Education Cluster, said: "We welcome SHL to Dubai Knowledge Village. Such professional organisations play an important role in enhancing the intellectual capital and capabilities of regional businesses to effectively meet new challenges. SHL aims to leverage our keen awareness of the region and the HR industry in Dubai to spotlight their expertise in talent management."
Mohamed Farid, Managing Director, Middle East - SHL, said: "Most organisations recognise that people are their most important asset; companies in the Middle East are increasingly seeking objective insights into their people's potential and ability to perform. We have seen a growing demand for workforce-related intelligence and have made significant investment in our operations to deliver suitable solutions.
"Our move to Dubai Knowledge Village will allow easier access to SHL's stakeholders in the UAE and across the wider region. We now have people on the ground to cultivate relationships and drive meaningful knowledge exchange."
SHL's latest research, the Global Assessment Trends Report 2012, demonstrates the increasing focus on retaining talent within organisations. Top priorities for HR professionals this year have been identified as engagement/retention (56%) and leadership development (55%). Furthermore, nearly 70% of respondents indicated that their organisations have either formal or both formal and informal processes in place for such initiatives.
Farid added: "Building on a foundation of 30 years of market leadership, innovation and expertise, we have the capability and experience to help businesses understand and leverage competencies, knowledge, skills, and talent of existing and potential employees to drive organisational success in terms of higher revenue, better customer retention and a stronger bottom line."
Launched in 2003, Dubai Knowledge Village is committed to consolidating Dubai's status as a global destination for human resource management and learning excellence. The free zone is a unique hub offering the right investment opportunities in human capital empowerment, skills development and enhancement.
