DUBAI, United Arab Emirates ,

Today, at the inaugural KronosLIVE Middle East event, Dubai Airports announced it has selected the Kronos Workforce Central suite of workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated to help meet the demands of staffing the airport’s expanding passenger and freight cargo infrastructure.

Dubai Airports owns and manages the operations of both of Dubai’s airport terminals at Dubai International, the world’s busiest international passenger airport and one of the world’s leading freight terminals, and Dubai World Central.

Hosted in the Kronos Cloud, the agreement has initially seen Kronos deliver its scheduling solution to enable Dubai Airports to automate the scheduling and leave requirements of its 3,000 full-time employees, with a plan to integrate the airport authority’s wider 5,000+ contract workforce into the solution, as the project extends to deliver an automated time and attendance solution to the airport.

Commenting on the news, Chandra Gour, Head of Manpower Planning and HR Systems, Dubai Airports, said, “Effective workforce scheduling is integral to the effective running of our service to our growing international passenger and freight user base. As one of the world’s largest airport hubs, it’s important we implement solutions that can meet our growing business demands. Our organization partnering with Kronos was a logical step to enable the functionality and scalability we required to support our strategic growth plans in the years ahead.”

Ahmed ElShrif, sales director, Middle East, Kronos, added, “Dubai Airports chose to deploy in the Kronos Cloud to benefit from the efficiencies, speed, cost savings, and flexibility it offered to deliver an automated workforce management strategy.”

Kronos is working with Andryan IT, a software solutions and integration services provider, to install the workforce management solution as part of a wider HR transformation project.

Chandra Gour will be presenting at KronosLIVE Middle East on March 15th at The Address Dubai Marina, discussing the opportunities and benefits the Kronos deployment will deliver to Dubai Airports.
