 Dubai Municipality has announced that it secured first place at the GCC GOV HR Awards 2023, under the category of the Best Emiratization Initiative in the GCC region. 

The award comes in recognition of the Municipality’s commitment to attracting Emirati cadres, developing their practical and specialised skills, and retaining talents, as part of the government’s directives within the framework of the Emiratisation policy of Dubai. 

Aisha Al Hammadi, Director of Human Resources Department at Dubai Municipality, commented: “Securing the first place at the GCC GOV HR Award 2023 marks a pioneering recognition of Dubai Municipality’s unwavering efforts to realize the directives of the wise leadership on the Emiratization policy within the emirate and encourage skilled and experienced Emirati youth to join municipal cadres.”

“The Municipality seeks to offer a healthy and sustainable work environment for its workforce, where it gives field and specialized training programs in their respective area of work. Additionally, the Municipality allows them to develop their skills and equip themselves with the necessary knowledge to support the goals and vision of being a leading and futuristic municipality that attracts and retains the best talents through various initiatives aimed at promoting Emiratization in jobs with low localization rates. Among these initiatives are ‘Our Human Resources, Our Pride’ initiative, scholarships, and professional development initiative, in addition to launching the Dubai Municipality Professional Training Academy in specialized areas of municipal work.” Al Hammadi added.

Dubai Municipality has significantly raised the level of Emiratisation across various occupational groups, it shared, particularly in the field and specialised functions like inspectors, observers, and engineering jobs.

It has also increased the development of Emirati groups through specialised qualification and training. 

The training sessions are carried out by leveraging cognitive technologies such as virtual reality, and metaverse and providing an encouraging environment to support innovation and constant learning for Emirati people to prepare them for the future.

Furthermore, the Municipality, it said, has also made significant contributions towards empowering Emirati women and advancing their role in municipal works. The commitment of the Municipality has enabled women to take up various leadership roles and work in specialised and field positions, qualify them in all specialised and professional fields, alongside introducing initiatives aimed at maintaining qualified Emirati competencies, enhancing their well-being in workplaces, and quality of life, and ensuring the balance between life and work.
