76% UAE jobseekers want traditional five-day workweek: Boston Consulting Group report

Compensation, work-life equilibrium valued as top priorities by UAE employees

Breaking a significant employment myth, a brand-new record from Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and also The Network has disclosed that 76 percent of UAE jobseekers still wish to function the standard five-day workweek. This verifies false the notion that standard day jobs are significantly lapsing, to be changed by part-time solutions, jobs, and also side projects.

” Possibly they are satisfying the hunger for flexibility by making the most of chances for hybrid job, which blends time in the workplace with time working from another location,” checked out the record. What’s even more? Crossbreed job is also shedding its luster. A majority of participants in the UAE (58 per cent) mentioned permanent office existence as their work version of preference.

The survey, labelled ‘What Job Seekers Wish Employers Knew’ launched on Monday, highlights that regardless of a feasible economic downturn experienced worldwide, the UAE is experiencing a significant boom. At least 82 per cent of UAE employees are come close to multiple times annual concerning new work possibilities, and 57 per cent are come close to regular monthly.

What candidates want

” It’s hard to win over top skill. A strong offer is inadequate; 41 percent of candidates in the UAE would decline an excellent deal if they had a negative experience throughout employment. A lot of talents (67 percent) picture their perfect profession in a stable task with an excellent work-life balance as well as time for family, buddies as well as leisure activities. Nonetheless, a primary offer breaker when looking for a job is still financial payment,” stated Dr Christopher Daniel, Handling Supervisor and Senior Partner, BCG Center East.

Top jobs in demand

Engineers and IT experts receive the fewest offers, likely due to the worldwide stagnation in the field of modern technology.
