I really feel for anybody who works within the service trade. Ever for the reason that UAE moved from a Sunday-Thursday week to Monday-Friday, the sense I’ve gotten is that these working within the service trade have needed to work out methods to cater to each native/international and regional shoppers. For a lot of, the reply has been easy – companies are having to work out rosters of individuals working over the six days, from Sunday to Friday.
I don’t know the way sustainable that is. Dubai is the hub for the area’s inventive companies, lots of whom don’t have places of work exterior of the Emirate. Will shoppers throughout the Center East accommodate the change within the working week? Or will companies look to open places of work (or transfer/rent folks) in international locations which nonetheless comply with the Sunday-Thursday routine?
For these working with shoppers throughout the area, I’m curious to know the way you’re managing. Is there something that may be performed to make the workload simpler, and/or redress the work-life stability? Or has the change within the UAE’s working week not had an impression?
One other statement over the previous couple of months is the variety of Russians and Hong Kongers transferring to the UAE, notably within the communications trade. Extra expertise is at all times a superb factor; let’s hope our new arrivals discover their toes within the area and get acquainted with its cultures and languages.
