He further said Dubai’s ability to come up with “pioneering initiatives in many fields” was the result of the “trust and confidence” placed in human capital. He said the government is focused on developing people by being fair and providing equal opportunities and capacity building via vocational and technical education.

The new scheme also makes a provision for flexible work timings, telework and part-time employment opportunities to help people maintain a healthy work-life balance. It has set a minimum wage for fresh Emirati graduates and also has allowances for air ticket, risk, health insurance and end-of-service benefits.

A career-grade placement committee will be formed to approve career-grade placement lists based on the salaries and grades defined under this scheme. Director-General, Dubai Government Human Resources Department, Abdulla Al Falasi, who will be chairing this committee, said, “The leadership directed us to prepare for the next 50 years and we are committed to delivering on our responsibilities. The Dubai Government Human Resources Department will form a technical team to work and coordinate with all government entities to ensure the safe and proper implementation of the plans. We will also list all technical and legal remarks related to grades, salaries, increments, allowances and benefits and ensure complete compliance with Law No. (8) of 2018 concerning the Management of Government of Dubai Human Resources and Decree No. (2) of 2019.”
