New report dissects UAE trends and employers' attitudes on employee benefits


Stephenson Harwood has contributed to a report on - UAE Employee Benefits Panorama - compiled by RBC Corporate Employee & Executive Services and Insight Discovery that examines remuneration practices in the UAE and what employers are doing to attract and retain talent in a global market place following the dramatic regional economic growth.

Emily Aryeetey, employment associate in the Dubai office of Stephenson Harwood, and Barbara Allen, partner and head of the employee and management incentives and remuneration practice in the London office, were invited to participate in a thought-leadership roundtable and discuss the survey results. Their contributions, together with those from a select group of senior HR and reward professionals and benefits consultants, are summarised in the report.

This timely commentary comes in the wake of a recent announcement we reported on in February 2017 that the Dubai International Financial Centre Authority is actively considering the introduction of a pensions law and is intended to promote greater awareness of the choices available to employers.

If you would like to discuss the contents of the report or the topic of employee and management incentives further, please contact Emily or Barbara.
