HR issues are of growing importance in the Middle East as economies founded on petro-dollars restructure and localize their traditionally expatriate-heavy work forces. Some countries are becoming financial service centres, holiday and medical tourism destinations, and trading and shopping hot spots in readiness for when the oil and gas finally run out. In the past, HR here mainly involved relocation planning for foreign workers and deciding on what currency to pay their tax-free salaries, but those days have long gone. Although the fundamentals of the regional economy are still strongly supported by oil, those countries that never had much in the first place - such as Bahrain, the UAE and Qatar - are leading the race to attract appropriate talent for their high growth industries. The 5th Annual edition of the summit is back to discuss solutions to the current challenges and to put things in the current perspective.
Fleming Gulf will be hosting the “5th Annual People Challenge Middle East Summit” on the 17th - 19th September 2012 at Beach Rotana in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
