Annual Creation of 36,000 Jobs for UAE Citizens
By concentrating on skilled positions within specific sectors, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization hopes to accomplish the Emiratization goals, which include creating 36,000 new jobs in the private sector.
Ambitious Emiratisation Targets
24,000 skilled positions for citizens in businesses with 50 or more employees, and an additional 12,000 jobs in businesses with 20 to 49 employees, are the targets of the half-yearly decisions for Emiratization percentages.
New Strategies for the Future
The Minister of Human Resources and Emiratization, Dr. Abdul Rahman bin Abdul Mannan Al Awar, expects the next phase to bring new plans and strategies to the table. The private sector will continue to employ talented Emiratis thanks to these initiatives. In order to empower citizens in accordance with market demands, specific qualifications programs will be introduced, with an emphasis on fields like education, health and medical, student vocational training, and larger empowerment initiatives.
NAFES Program's Impact
The minister highlights the success of the Emirati cadre competitiveness program (NAFES), noting the substantial increase in citizens entering the private sector, exceeding 55,000 in the past two years. Presently, over 85,000 male and female citizens contribute to the private sector workforce, thanks to strategic government policies promoting the role of local talents in the job market.
Annual Growth and Job Creation
The ministry aims to achieve a 1% semi-annual growth rate in skilled jobs for companies with 50 or more employees, resulting in the annual creation of 24,000 jobs for citizens. Additional targets for companies with 20 to 49 workers will add to this growth, encompassing 14 main sectors and specific economic activities, along with 71 sub-activities, over the next two years.
Simplifying processes for all
Dr. Al Awar emphasizes the Ministry's commitment to launching a new generation of services aimed at simplifying lives for individuals and business owners. Building on previous efforts, the Ministry aims to enhance the integration of efforts between federal and local authorities, reduce procedures and requirements, and proactively provide services. Responding to customer feedback remains a top priority to ensure faster, simpler, and more efficient services.
