The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) confirmed June 30 as the final deadline for meeting Emiratisation targets for the first half of 2024.

In accordance with the Council of Ministers decisions the target aims for a 1 per cent growth in UAE citizens in skilled jobs at companies with 50 or more employees.

In a statement, MoHRE explained from July 1, it will begin verifying the level of compliance among companies in terms of meeting targets before imposing the corresponding financial contributions to non-compliant establishments.

MoHRE also commended companies that have achieved the required growth, emphasising the necessity of registering Emirati citizens in a pension fund and the Wage Protection System (WPS).

It called on these establishments to ensure that the growth rates they have achieved are maintained by 30th June.

The ministry is urging companies that have yet to meet their targets to take advantage of the Nafis Programme’s digital platform, which allows access to a wide pool of qualified Emirati job seekers across various specialisations.
