Abu Dhabi -- The Abu Dhabi Systems and Information Centre’s Jobs Abu Dhabi e-Recruitment platform was celebrated as the best G2C (Government-to-Customer) service of the year at ITP’s Gov Awards, 2015. The award was conferred in a ceremony held in the St. Regis Hotel, Abu Dhabi, on March 31.

ADSIC’s Jobs Abu Dhabi programme is a pioneering e-Government initiative that allows government, and private-sector entities in Abu Dhabi to accomplish recruitment efficiency by reducing hiring timeframes and efforts. This achieved millions in savings in terms of cost and led to connecting with world-class talent through JAD’s powerful digital platform. JAD was designed to modernise recruitment through the use of ICT solutions and enable successful connection between job seekers and employers.

Dr. Ahmed Al Hashimi, Senior Manager – e-Government Services at ADSIC, accepted the award on behalf of the organisation. “I am incredibly honoured to be accepting this award on behalf of ADSIC and the JAD team who worked tirelessly to create a world-class e-Government initiative that is an example of efficiency and positive change,” said Al Hashimi.

“Winning the best Government to Customer award can only indicate how technology can act as an enabler to facilitate and modernise services. The value of the JAD initiative is clear,” Al Hashimi continued, “with 1,000-plus Government, semi-government and private entities currently utilising the portal in order to successfully achieve their recruiting objectives and to reduce their recruitment efforts and cost.

Those entities with the help of JAD have collectively managed to recruit thousands of jobseekers thus changing their lives and financial status. In addition, the portal has been a driver for Emiratisation with the largest pool of UAE national resumes.”

Al Hashimi continued, “This is definitely in line with Abu Dhabi’s 2030 vision and we are proud to be part of this initiative serving the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and associated stakeholders. Winning this award from ITP can only motivate us to continue to strive for excellence and deliver the innovative programs and initiatives required to build Abu Dhabi as a premier example of e-Government in action.”
