Abstract: Talent management using quotas has been extensively studied as a national policy intervention. Drawing on twenty semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders and opinion leaders in the UAE, we demonstrate a significant unintended consequence of the quota based talent management system, namely the increased sense of competition between the public and the private sectors for recruiting and retaining local workers. Our study shows how and why intersectoral competition shapes outcomes of quota based talent management applications. We illustrate the necessity to move away from an ‘ideologically driven’ approach towards an 'evidence based' approach in management of talent in the region.
