The research used a literature review and a primary research involving interviews of fifteen managerial respondents from across different sectors of UAE. The findings showed that there was a need for the government to change both policy and structural framework to provide better direction and support to organisations towards getting Emiratisation on the road to success. At the policy level, the government needed to amend the aims of Emiratisation, in addition to quotas it should use measures like ‘number of trainings provided to Emiratis’. There is also a need to modify the curriculum at the higher educational level to better match the organizational needs to create public awareness and affect a change in the mindset of the Emiratis to make them more amenable to accepting different levels of jobs in diverse sectors. The government may also subsidize private sector salaries to make jobs attractive to Emiratis while at the same time reduce the burden on the organisations. At the structural level, it is recommended to make Tanmia more focused and powerful and to encourage Abu Dhabi Emiratisation Council or ADEC to play a more active role by helping organisations develop their internal targets and plans for Emiratisation, and by streamlining the educational institutes with the market needs.
The organisations are recommended to initiate a culture change so that the top level and the HR managers as well as other employees are ready and prepared to take in local Emiratis as equals with equivalent skills and competence. The organisations also need to place measures for accountability of managers towards Emiratisation targets and to share their experiences openly with ADEC and other organisations.

Indeed, the HR department is very crucial in any organization as it serves the link between the employees and the management of any organization.

Indeed, theories of strategic human resource management rely on organizational cultures and practices to assume that organizations develop a unique culture that is not prone to the impact of external environmental factors on organizational activities.
Beyond the mere representation of labour law and the means by which this is invariably affected, the way in which the government itself is structured, the means by which cultural norms exist, and a variety of other factors all impact upon the process of human resource management and help to define the way in which components of global system reflect one another, differentiate from one another, and provide a nuanced manner by which human resource management is affected.
