The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a hub for global businesses because of its strong economic growth, robust infrastructure, advanced business culture and low tax environment. Home to over 200 nationalities, the UAE has proved to be one of the most attractive countries for foreign talent with a highly skilled and diverse workforce.
At a time when global organisations resorted to mass layoffs, displacing up to 1 million employees, the UAE remained a job seeker's market. The country has seen the greatest increase in job creation in the last six years, and the job market is expected to continue to grow strongly in the coming years. This is as a result of strong governance, employee driven initiatives, forward planning, and increased business activity.
As the country continues to witness strong economic growth, its labour market too will undergo seismic shifts. New workplace trends such as emergence of gig economy, the increasing importance of health and safety, and the growing focus on DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) shape the future of the country's work environment. It reflects a global trend of people rethinking their relationship with, and expectations of, the working world.
After recognizing organisations from various sectors in India, Team Marksmen Network along with its research partner LeadCap Ventures are now set to identify organisations with the best work cultures in the UAE at a gala event in October. Team Marksmen Network's Most Preferred Workplaces 2023 - UAE edition will laud the organisations that have particularly succeeded in their holistic reorientation of the workplace.
This unique initiative has been shaped by insights gleaned from an industry-wide consumer study conducted by LeadCap Ventures, with organisations appraised on the following parameters:
CEOs, CHROs, Presidents, Sr. Vice Presidents, Senior Directors, Directors and Heads of Human Resources, Training, Learning and Development
