There has been an increased investment in education, training and development in upskilling UAE nationals.
More private sector companies in the UAE are looking to hire talented Emiratis, particularly in technology, finance, retail, auto, healthcare and hospitality sectors, recruitment and management consulting firms’ executives have said.
Vijay Gandhi, regional director for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Korn Ferry, a global management consulting firm, said the trend emerges as the country recovers strongly in the post-pandemic world.
“As business activity gains steam, we are seeing a trend of Emiratis joining the strategic services sector, which includes retail, auto, healthcare and hospitality. The new policies and legislations will help in advancing Emirati employment within the private sector,” said Gandhi.
He said there has been an increased investment in education, training and development in upskilling UAE nationals. “It’s truly an exciting time for Emiratis as the UAE marches towards being a competitive, knowledge-based economy of the future.”
