We had no cases of discrimination in 2015.  We provide a competitive package in line with ADNOC guidelines with 1:1 basic salary ratio for male and female and ensure that all our employees have equal training and development opportunities.


As part of ADNOC Group, any significant operational changes are announced in advance to employees and normally any significant effects are minimized to ensure the wellbeing and prosperity of the employees.


The KPIs to manage and measure our human resources strategy include Emiratization, UAE nationals’ integration, people development, organizational capability, and employee engagement measures.

ADGAS’ 2015 attrition rate is 3.6%. Continuous efforts are made on Das Island to improve the standard of accommodation, the recreational facilities and catering in coordination with ADMA-OPCO. The social and welfare committees at Abu Dhabi Headquarters and Das Island have played a positive role in assisting employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance.


The quality of benefits for full-time staff is a key factor in staff retention, and a positive reflection of ADGAS’ significant investment in human resources. These benefits include life insurance, healthcare, disability and invalidity coverage, maternity leave, and retirement provision.


In order to minimize the psychological impact of serious illness if faced by an ADGAS employee, ADGAS also provides education and training, counselling, prevention, and risk control programs and treatment.

The new employees from NRC will be interviewed, assessed and trained over a period of time. They will go through intensive program of learning and development, classroom and on the job, to ensure they have the appropriate skills to perform their roles effectively. Upon successful completion of their training, they will be assigned to their respective job disciplines in various ADGAS Divisions/Departments.
