1. Our Top 3 Achievements of 2023

100% Emiratisation Success Rate

Emiratization is one of the main topics for industry talks this year. It cannot be denied that implementing the program in a way that benefits both the government and the private sector turned out to be a huge challenge for many companies. In response, we directed our efforts toward providing efficient and valuable assistance to our clients in addressing this challenge. Our ambition is to enhance the efficacy of Emiratization, and we are proud to declare a 100% success rate in achieving effective recruitment and employee retention.
