Dubai’s Digitalizing Workforce
LinkedIn published a report on “The Great Reshuffle”, which covered how the UAE is embracing a new world of work.
The report, in partnership with the UAE Ministry of Economy, analyzed the 5 million-strong member base in the country to understand the forces that have been shaping the country’s labor over the last 5 years. We sat down with Mr. Rajai El Khadem, Head of Public Sector and Academia at LinkedIn MENA to understand the analysis further.

Looking at trends, hiring rates were 36%
