Human resource development (HRD) is pivotal for companies' competitive advantage, yet its conceptualization varies across studies and industries, often relying more on practice than specific theoretical underpinnings. This knowledge gap is pronounced in developing countries like the UAE, home to one of the world's largest Oil and Gas industries. To address this, a quantitative study surveyed 321 employees within the UAE Oil and Gas Industry via an online questionnaire, aiming to elucidate HRD practices. The findings underscored training and development, coaching and mentoring, and career development as key HRD drivers, highlighting their indispensable roles in fostering continuous organizational growth. This study contributes empirical insights into HRD practices within the UAE Oil and Gas Industry, informing tailored HRD strategies and practices while providing a foundation for future research endeavors in this domain
