About BAYANATI System
Since its inception in 2912, BAYANATI System has been a strategic and vial project that contributes to enhancing the UAE’s strategic position and global competitiveness, as well as acting as a reference and major source of data, statistics and HR indicators in the Federal Government, by helping in automation of all HR procedures including salaries, converting them to self-service, which saves time, effort, and money.
The system helps to effectively manage human resources and provide general and accurate statistics on human resources. Moreover, it is one of the best practices that have been used to serve and develop human resources departments in ministries and federal entities and improve their performance in accordance with international best practices, besides facilitating administrative procedures and financial operations.
Generally speaking, BAYANATI System is a quantum leap in smart government applications to perform important human resource procedures in the Federal Government. It helps automate all HR procedures, including wages and salaries in federal ministries and entities throughout an employee’s service, and enhances human resources performance based on modern concepts and global standards. The system also helps create a unified Federal Government database that supports decision makers and assists in planning processes.
The self-service operated through the system is considered one of the most important features of the system, as it enables the Federal Government employees to complete and follow up their own human resources transactions, thus facilitating the provision of human resources services in ministries and federal bodies.
Self-service allows more time to HR departments to focus on strategic programs and initiatives, leaving routine work to employees to handle on their own. It also provides line managers with smart reports and HR dashboards necessary for monitoring the status of human resources in their departments.
