Workforce Management in the Arabian Peninsula

Workforce Management in the Arabian Peninsula

This timely volume contains a series of informative and thought-provoking articles by experts in their fields. Together they provide a detailed assessment of the political, economic, and religious forces affecting the major oil rich states of the Arabian Peninsula, along with a comprehensive analysis of the primary forces affecting economic and resource development in that region. Topics discussed include historical areas of underlying conflict, regional analyses of pivotal forces and trends, Islamic influences upon the concept of labor, the subtleties of cultural differences and the transfer of technology, and employment contracts. Specific chapters provide resource profiles of the major Arab states in the Persian Gulf, along with statistical projections of future resource needs. In the concluding chapter, the editors offer a comparative analysis of the human resource requirements of the smaller Gulf states, along with practical applications for human resources management. The volume also contains a select biblography, charts on Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, and a chart on comparative Western and Islamic organizations.
