The UAE is home to the highest number of employers of choice in the Gulf region, a new study has found.
According to Best Employers in the Middle East 2009 survey, the UAE is home to eight of the region's 12 employers of choice. The others are situated in Oman, Kuwait, Lebanon and Egypt.
Commenting on the findings of the study, Debabrat Mishra, consulting business leader for the Middle East at Hewitt Associates, told Emirates Business: "That is an indication that in the UAE the progressive companies are seeing much more multinational presence and local companies are learning so much from them."
Among the 12 companies identified as employers of choice were representatives of the technology, pharmaceuticals, finance and hospitality industries.
It is the first time that Hewitt has compiled the study. In doing so, it sought the views of more than 150,000 workers across the region.
The wealth of attractive career options in the UAE may be an encouraging factor for those who are considering investing in property for sale in Dubai.
