Abstract

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has bold plans to build several major industries as an alternative to its current high oil dependent economy. Against this backdrop this paper presents findings of interviews with managers from twenty private sector companies operating in the United Arab Emirates. Specifically the research has concentrated on understanding the recruitment intentions these organizations and gauging their level of preparedness to employ UAE nationals for future vacancies. It attempts to clearly identify both the positive and negative perceptions employers' held with respect of the employability of UAE nationals and to understand the rationale behind those perceptions.
