• We have already started to experience how the latest revisions to the labour law provide increased flexibility and protection for employees and employers alike. These new updates are one of the biggest changes to be introduced to the UAE Labour Laws.  Many of the new rules make it easier for employees to change jobs while protecting the employers, financially. The new laws make it illegal for employers to force their employees to leave the country at the end of their work contract or on termination of the same. Instead, the worker will be allowed to find a new job.

     


  • All retention tactics focus on keeping your best people happy, satisfied, and engaged. The Quantum Workplace 2021 “Employee Turnover Trends” survey discovered that “highly engaged employees” are 4.4 times less likely to search for other opportunities outside your company. When queried if they would remain at their jobs a year from now, 88% said yes they would. Nevertheless, how do we engage them to retain them during the current year?

     


  • The shift in our perceptions and values in our professional lives has created an unprecedented crisis in terms of talent attraction in companies around the world. Forty-one percent of the global workforce is considering resigning from their current jobs and 36% are leaving their jobs without even receiving an offer letter for a new job. Such is the situation of the world as individual staffers have realized that their employer is not committed to their wellbeing as much as they are to the company’s growth. The phenomenon has perplexed experts as it goes against Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs. In the past, necessities like job security, decent compensation, or even the opportunity to work were enough for someone to come on-board. However, that would not suffice anymore for the Millennials and Gen Z, which means the Employee Value Propositions (EVPs) is outdated. The current generation does not care for such things as long as you believe in and stand for the same things that they do.
