His Excellency the University President, Prof. Abdullah bin Omar Bafail, in his office yesterday, reviewed the "Annual Report of the Deanship of Faculty Members and Employees Affairs", which contains a detailed breakdown of the deanship's achievements during the past year. It included a number of statistics related to appointments, promotions, service transfers, replacement jobs, job formations, and performance management tasks, in addition to the efforts of the deanship towards retirees.

The report was presented to His Excellency the Vice President and Dean of Faculty Members and Employees Affairs, Prof. Farid bin Ali Al-Ghamdi, the vice deans of the deanship: Dr. Mahmud Falatah, Dr. Kholoud Abul-Naja, Dr. Abdullah Baz, Bandar Al-Rubai, and the Office Manager of the Deanship, Mr. Elias Darji.

The report included an overview of the deanship's efforts in automating work procedures, as most of the work is now managed electronically, which facilitates the service of the beneficiary without the need to actually go to the deanship.

On the other hand, His Excellency the UQU President received the "Deanship Human Resources Transformation Program", which is a road map to align with the King Salman Human Resources Development Program. It aims to raise the quality of work of government organizations as well as employee productivity, and create a stimulating administrative environment.

On his part, His Excellency the Vice President stated that a benchmarking comparison was made to the practices in similar local and regional universities, with the guidance of international best practices in human resource management, especially the British Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the American Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), and the Association for Talent Development (ATD).

The Vice President stated that the transformation initiatives and programs were designed with three components: Practices for Capacity Building of Human Resources (12 programs), Enhanced Stimulation Practices (6 programs), and Enhanced Empowerment Practices (12 programs). Some of these practices have been launched in the past two weeks, such as the Happiness and Positivity Program and the Human Resource Ambassadors Program.
