BAYANATI System in Brief
BAYANATI System is a smart portal through which all human resources procedures in the Federal Government are carried out automatically and electronic platform for many human resources systems implemented in the Federal Government.
BAYANATI is also considered an important reference to the country's human resources statistics and establishes a unified federal and local governments database that reflects their reality, supports decision makers and helps in effective planning of the future of human resources in the country.
Since its launch, BAYANATI has played an influential role in providing services to, and development of human resources departments in the ministries and federal entities, to improve their performance in accordance with international best practices and standards, as well as simplify administrative procedures and financial operations associated with them.
BAYANATI system provides distinguished services to Federal Government employees. It enables employees to complete all human resources procedures through the self-service unit assigned for each employee, helps speed up electronic approvals for certain HR procedures obtaining online approvals on certain human resources procedures and ensures the payment of salaries through a unified system .
Self-service is one of the most important components of the system, as it enables Federal Government employees to complete and follow-up their own HR procedures. This function, according to her, would greatly facilitate the provision of human resources services in ministries and federal agencies and helps HR departments to focus on Strategic programs and initiatives rather than daily routine tasks.
