The benefits include a reduction of 80% in the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation’s service costs for private sector enterprises that produce significant results in terms of Emirati citizen recruitment and training. Beginning in January 2023, non-compliant businesses would be required to pay AED6,000 per month for each individual who is unemployed.
Emiratisation rates rises
A new mechanism to strengthen Emiratisation in the private sector has also been authorised, with the intention of boosting Emiratisation rates in skilled occupations by 2% yearly. By 2026, the rate will have climbed to 10%.
The proposed system will be deployed in collaboration with Nafis, a federal initiative aimed at improving Emirati workforce productivity and empowering people to work in the private sector.
NAFIS provides a number of advantages, such as the Emirati Salary Support Scheme, which provides UAE nationals with a one-year salary assistance of up to Dh8,000 per month while training and a monthly assistance of up to Dh5,000 for university graduates for up to 5 years.
In addition, the UAE Cabinet also announced a new housing policy as part of its Zayed House Programme, which comprises an innovative funding scheme for housing loans totaling $3.13 billion (AED 11.5 billion) that would help 13,000 citizen families. The financing initiative is the most recent milestone in the Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme, which aims to guarantee that every person has access to a family home.
