The study utilized an exploratory non-probability purposive sampling method of 10 individual managers within Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and its subsidiaries (ADNOC) triangulated with organizational documentation and archived records. The study results are organized under three themes: (1) recruitment and selection strategies; (2) training, education, and professional development; and (3) attractive compensation and benefits packages.
