The aim of the study is to examine the impact of employee recruitment, employee selection, and employee staffing on competitive advantages and organization performance in the UAE manufacturing industry. The research framework illustrates the relationships between the exogenous variables (employee recruitment, employee selection, and employee staffing) and the endogenous variables, competitive advantage and organizational performance. The study is quantitative method research based on the original data collected for the UAE manufacturing industry's target population based on a well-structured survey. The study is an empirical investigation by surveying employees from specific management levels based on predefined hypotheses. The target or study population chosen for this research work equates to the total number of employees working in any firm in the UAE manufacturing industries and willing to respond to the questionnaire during data collection. The actual sample size is 382 employees. The distributed survey is 524, which is distributed by using face-to-face data collection methods in a conventional sample selection technique in 2019. Overall, the model is successful because it can predict 44.2% of the organization's performance and the direct relationships for the three predictors of HRM practices are significant. The precedence for the relations based on the path coefficient value is employee recruitment (0.334), employee selection (0.297), and employee staffing (0.278). The three variables can explain more than 33.4% of the Competitive Advantages (CA) variance. The precedence for the relations based on the path coefficient value is employee selection (0.356), employee recruitment (0.294), and employee staffing (0.254). Competitive advantage has a significant impact on organizational performance (0.567) and has a successful mediation in the relationships between the three variables and organizational performance.
