Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) has announced the launch of the Future of Government Work Accelerators Program in partnership with the Dubai Government Human Resources Department.

Aimed at supporting government entities in Dubai in adopting the best work practices, the program was created in line with the objectives of the Dubai Social Agenda 33, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The program will be facilitated by Dubai Future Accelerators (DFA), and involve 13 government entities.

Through workshops, the program will explore issues such as automation, talent, digitisation, work-life balance, 21st-century skills, job security, remote work, recruitment strategies, legal structures, among others. 

The Future of Government Work Accelerators Program focuses on three main objectives: 

  • Unifying efforts to empower talent in the government sector; 
  • Understanding the challenges and changes that affect government work; and 
  • Anticipating the biggest future challenges in the field of preparing government employees.

Speaking about the initiative, His Excellency Abdullah Ali Bin Zayed Al-Falasi, Director General of DGHR, said: “We are continually developing new concepts and methods for working and achieving goals in ways that suit young talent.”

Al Falasi said: “The Dubai Government Human Resources Department is working to enhance future thinking and innovation, build human capacity and upskill employees for the jobs of the future. This is critical to empowering our people to lead future government work efficiently through leveraging automation and digitization, ultimately enhancing Dubai’s position as one of the world’s most future-ready cities.”

Meanwhile, His Excellency Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of DFF, said: “This program will accelerate the development of government work in Dubai, directly implementing the leadership’s directives for the city to be best in the world for adopting innovative practices in its government sector. These advanced practices will be reflected in the quality of services and overall government performance.”

His Excellency added: “The Future of Government Work Accelerators Program will help develop a comprehensive strategy to determine the nature and method of government work over the coming decades. It signifies a new phase in the government’s system of foresight and planning for the future, focusing on keeping pace with challenges and changes.”
