As a business owner, hiring fresh graduates might seem counter-productive to your short-term goals, as you would prefer someone who is already well acquainted with the workplace. Sometimes, banking tech business owners that we work with are less enthused about graduates and prefer to have someone with years of experience – the more experienced, the better. But in adopting this way of thinking, you are certainly disregarding a sizeable and valuable proportion of the employee market.  While studies show that every successful workplace needs to include a diverse team of different ages, backgrounds and genders, graduates have a set of skills...

Any UAE national will tell you that the government's dedication to their nationalisation programme (also referred to as Emiratisation) has permanently altered the face of the Emirati job market.   Before the programme, the labour market was structurally divided, with the vast majority of jobs being taken by overseas workers. Emiratis missed out on certain job opportunities as the area’s economy grew at an accelerated rate as job seekers from all over the world flooded to the region to enjoy the many benefits of living in the UAE.  Tax breaks for workers, competitive compensation packages and the beautiful scenery are among just some of the reasons many overseas workers...

When was the last time you gave instant feedback to one of your employees, good or bad, for something they had done? It can be easy in the workplace to hide behind emails, and to wait for more significant milestones like annual reviews and appraisals to give feedback to your employees. Worse still, opportunities to provide feedback can often fall by the wayside, especially in demanding sectors like technology. Who has the time to stop and talk about any issues they have candidly?
