Dubai Chamber of Commerce achieves 64% emiratisation.

Dubai: The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry announced on Monday that it achieved 64 per cent emiratisation in its higher management. It has set an overall 50 per cent target this year.

The Chamber recently appointed two national directors for its Human Resources and the Corporate Communication and Customer Service departments.

The appointees are Azzah Al Sharhan and Leena Al Abbas.

Hamad Bu Amim, director general, said this reflects a conscious effort to promote UAE nationals into senior management positions, thus creating room for more promotions within the organisation as the chamber during the last five months has secured 69 per cent Emiratisation in the middle management category.

High profile

"The Dubai Chamber is doing its bit in constantly absorbing and attracting qualified UAE nationals who enjoy a high profile of work experience in a way that copes with the Chamber's mission and strategy in upgrading the performance of its departments so as to provide best quality services

for the development of business by creating and motivating an excellent business environment thus directly contributing in the promotion of Dubai as a world business hub," said Bu Amim.

In addition to the new appointments, the Dubai Chamber has also introduced several changes to its HR policies and procedures, which aim to further enhance the motivation and productivity of its employees. The chamber is about to implement a new salary structure this month.

This latest move, which is a follow-up to the implementation of the first performance-based bonus scheme for the Chamber in April, goes a long way in making the four decade-old organisation a competitive employer in the job market.
