UAE Employment Law Update Sponsored by Fragomen

The panel focused on "changing the mindset" around localisation 'quotas' and instead urged the audience to "view the opportunities" provided through Emiratization and Saudization.
This week an audience of over sixty BBG members and guests representing HR, business set up and owners, recruitment and law firms heard and learnt from a panel consisting of: Fragomen Partners Abeer Al Husseini and Haider Hussain joined by Diana Wilde Founder of Aurora50 and James Binding Managing Director of Binding Partnerships and moderated by John Martin St.Valery OBE BBG Board Director for Government Relations.
"Localisation should be seen to encourage more connectivity with the region, improve diversity of thinking and improve workforce mobility."
Whilst there are challenges around being able to comply and some complexities to understand and a definite need for more information from the audience - the speakers cited https://nafis.gov.ae/ and government source information to support companies to navigate the programme and implementation.
For more information on this topic you can reach out to the British Business Group Dubai and Northern Emirates (BBG) or contact Fragomen directly as Abeer and Haider definitely demonstrated their expertise and understanding of localisation - both regionally and for corporates.
