How should I use keywords?

Use keywords that are as specific as possible. For example, if you want to search about a page, use the “word page” not “a pages” “and pages” etc…

Refine search results?

If you find that your search has returned too many results you might want to consider refining your search. You can refine your search by adding other keywords to your search or by using the handy keyword tool that can filter your results to make them more accurately reflect the information you are looking for.

Employee Empowerment & Well-being Programs

Wednesday July 17, 2019

The UAE has achieved a leading global position in many fields and sectors, thanks to its wise leadership's keen interest in developing and empowering the national human capital by creating a positive and stimulating work environment for employees and creating all the elements and reasons for happiness and success for them. This has greatly contributed to enhancing the government's competitiveness and global leadership


There is no doubt that providing necessary arrangements for workplace  harmony and employee happiness in different work environments at the state level, and creating new methods and tools for shaping the future   and meeting the needs of different generations, contribute to realizing the  aspirations of the country's wise leadership


In this regard, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has made great efforts towards consolidating the values and concepts of happiness and positivity in the government work environment. It has launched and implemented a number of initiatives related to Federal Government employees’ well- being, such as employees’ discount program (Imtiyazat); Rewards & Incentives System, adopted by a Cabinet Resolution in 2015; and the Federal Government’s preferred training and assessment partners initiatives (Ma’aref) and (Qudrat). Other initiatives launched include the Guide to Employee Well- being in the Federal Government; the Guide to Occupational Health & Safety in the Federal Government, and Thank-you electronic Card -Maqassert


The importance of Employee Well- being programs is to create a positive corporate culture that necessarily results in happy employees who are able to provide exceptional service to customers and thus to the UAE citizens and residents. This is the ultimate goal of the UAE Government, which is always striving to establish a culture of happiness and positive lifestyle in the country


Some studies conducted by international institutions specialized in the field of human resources suggest that the happy employee improves his performance by 31%, his innovation by 300%, his efficiency by 37%, while his sick leaves decreases by 66%
