According to Nasser Bin Thani Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, the decision to unite public and private sector holidays in the UAE will make the employees more productive and will provide vital input to the country’s economic growth.
Al Hamli in an exclusive statement told the reporters, “The unified holidays will especially encourage Emiratis to explore productive career opportunities across diverse economic sectors in the UAE, which now become even more attractive, thanks to the equal holiday benefits.”
“The decision by the UAE Cabinet will not only bring parity in benefits between both public and private sectors but also help attract the best national talents to take up private sector jobs,” he added.
The decision is also a part of the UAE 2021 Vision. The vision aims to increase the number of employees in the private sector. “The private sector is a key driver of the UAE economy and is considered the perfect segment to attract the best professional Emirati talents that form the backbone of a competitive economy. Equal holiday benefits for public and private sectors will, therefore, increase the productivity of the workforce, as well as improve family ties — all of which will reflect in enhanced employee efficiency in the private sector,” he said.
On Tuesday, it was declared by the UAE cabinet they are going to assemble the private and public holidays for 2019 and 2020.
