Sharaf Group is committed to support and advance the economic and industrial growth of the UAE and increase participation of Emirati nationals in this endeavour. We are proud to support the Absher Initiative, launched by the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa, to strengthen Emiratisation in the private sector.
Within the diverse range of businesses which we operate, we offer real career opportunities for Emiratis to work alongside people from many different nationalities. We believe that the cultural diversity of our workforce is one of the reasons behind our growth and success.
Sharaf Group recruits, trains, develops and integrates UAE nationals at all levels in our business and helps Emiratis to become leading professionals in the sectors where we operate, enhancing their skills and knowledge along the way – and strengthening the Group in the process. We see increased Emirati employment in the Group as a highly effective way to balance market and cultural knowledge with skills and experience.
We will play our part in Government plans to place 20,000 UAE nationals in private-sector careers over the next five years. The UAE is working to reduce its economic dependence on oil and gas, and Abu Dhabi’s Vision 2030 provides a comprehensive plan for the diversification of the Emirate’s economy.
We will help populate the UAE’s workforce with young Emirati professionals who have strong, business and commercial skills that will be even more sought-after in the coming decades. The Government is playing its part in focusing on this need; the educational sector is investing heavily in education at all levels to deliver qualified candidates; and the private sector must do everything it can to create opportunities for those candidates. Sharaf Group is delighted to make own contribution in this national noble cause.
