“Sustainable jobs are the practical mechanism through which citizens have the opportunity to earn and accumulate wealth, improve their living standards and create opportunities for their children”, said “Gulf News” in it editorial on Thursday.
In this �Year of Emiratisation’, companies are making a concerted effort to employ UAE nationals, as highlighted at the 13th annual Careers UAE exhibition. However, to ensure the success of Emiratisation, companies, government and job-seekers must continue to work together. Companies must identify employment and progression opportunities for Emiratis and provide them with the necessary support and training in the workplace to help them succeed.
The government needs to look at ways of bringing conditions of employment in public services in line with those of the private sector.
“However, by working together, government and companies will be able to provide secure employment and sustainable career paths in the private sector to Emiratis”, concluded the paper.
