Mashreq Emiratisation on track with ambitious plans for nationals

Mashreq is supporting Emiratisation, through its various activities and initiatives. The variety of training and mentoring programmes at Mashreq is set to nurture skilled Emaratis and empower them with the right tools to achieve their goals.

Mashreq has developed dedicated programmes to be able to recruit, train, develop and retain UAE Nationals employees. The Bank is the first and only financial institution in the region to receive the Gallup Great Workplace Award 2014.

AbdulAziz Al Ghurair, CEO of Mashreq, stressed the significance to shift focus from merely achieving a percentage to offering actual critical jobs in the management.

Al Ghurair said, “There must be standardisation in both the private and public sector in terms of leave entitlement, salary, pensions and working hours. Even the education system can play a sensitive role. Universities, colleges and educational institutes must diversify educational majors such as audit, accounting and finance management, so that the upcoming generation has a larger mix of different backgrounds.” Since the partnership with Absher, Mashreq has employed 300 UAE nationals, reflecting its ongoing commitment towards Emiratisation and to become one of the first organisations to exceed its target.

Launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Absher initiative was established as an oral strategic framework to employ UAE citizens under one clear and comprehensive vision in accordance with UAE vision 2021.

By signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Absher, Mashreq aims to attract 500 unemployed fresh graduates Emiratis over a period of 5 years. This initiative is in line with Mashreq’s commitment to empower Emiratis to become the leaders of the future and find suitable job placements for them.
