Salary Guide: UAE in 2022
Moving in to 2022 is an exciting time within the UAE market and recruitment will be no exception. The UAE has fared better than most, throughout the COVID-pandemic, and in many ways has allowed its competitive advantage to become even stronger and prevalent. Through strong government, vaccination compliance and a willingness to evolve and emerge, the UAE continues to attract business and company opportunity across the board. In turn, this up-swing demand for talent pools and the need to attract & retain will be a significant challenge in 2022.
The UAE has delivered an excellent EXPO 2020 Dubai (a Charterhouse RPO since 2017) and in many ways it mirrors how importantly the country is positioned not just regionally but globally. The return of business and tourist numbers proves also the desirability of the UAE as a destination and hub. These fundamentals are also being supported by the ever-changing landscape of the UAE’s business and residential environment. The recent weekend changes, are further evidence, that the country is ready to support working flexibility whilst also allowing for international alignment and further engagement.
Whilst the pandemic is far from over, the UAE will certainly continue to develop policies, protocol and technologies to ensure that Covid is not a catalyst to slow or “lockdown” the economy or society in general. These overriding factors will certainly ensure that business and recruitment opportunity will continue to open up, throughout the year ahead, within a whole host of industries and sectors.
