MoHRE intensifies field and virtual meetings with Emiratis working in private sector
The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced its bid to intensify field and virtual meetings with Emiratis in their workplaces in private sector companies with the aim of following up their working conditions. This comes as part of the work of the special committee that the MoHRE formed in last March to support the job stability of Emiratis and protect their rights.
Supporting the job stability of Emiratis working in the private sector is one of MoHRE’s priorities of work in the Emiratisation file, particularly in light of the fallout of COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the jobs of the labor market as other global labor markets, said H.E. Nasser Bin Kharbash, Undersecretary for Emiratisation Affairs, who is also chairman of the committee.
The MoHRE is implementing a program to communicate with the Emiratis working in private sector companies and the people in charge of these companies by paying field visits or organizing virtual meetings to get familiar with Emiratis’ job conditions, particularly in terms of working hours and career development, listen to their observations and discuss the same with their immediate managers with a view to empowering Emiratis in their jobs, he said.
Bin Kharbash stressed the MoHRE’s keenness on providing an attractive and stable work environment for male and female Emiratis working in various economic sectors in co-operation, partnership and co-ordination with companies operating in these sectors. This would be done through a package of policies and initiatives that would support the private sector in a way that encourages it to shoulder its national and community responsibilities in the Emiratisation file.
This came during a recent meeting held by Bin Kharbash with a number of Emiratis at their workplaces for Schlumberger Petroleum, Dulsco LLC., Al Futtaim Company LLC., EY Consulting LLC., Al Masaood Oil Industry Supplies and Services LLC., Majid Al Futtaim Hypermarkets and Al Fardan Exchange. The meeting was attended by officials from the aforementioned companies.
Bin Kharbash underlined the importance of job commitment and skill development and the need for Emiratis to take advantage of their jobs to bolster their experiences as this plays a major role in career advancement and enhances their job privileges.
Praising the Emiratis he met and their keenness on performing their job duties efficiently and competently, Bin Kharbash pointed out that they are recording remarkable success stories like many others working in the private sector. “This makes us proud of the highly qualified Emiratis working in this important strategic sector,” he said.
He also praised the interaction that the companies visited so far showed with the Emiratisation file, particularly through considering this file as a major part of the strategic planning of the two companies.
The MoHRE is scheduled to keep implementing the program of visits to meet with Emiratis in their workplaces in private sector companies.
