Nearly half of UAE residents expect salary increment this year


- Advertisment -

In a survey conducted in the UAE, nearly half of Emirati and expats are expecting a salary hike this 2021. However, a larger number believe their pay will be the same. 

Hays 2021 Emiratization and Employment Report further revealed that only two percent of Emiratis and three percent of expats expect a pay cut due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

“The findings certainly reflect our own prediction. We do not expect the pandemic to negatively affect salaries further in 2021. Instead, we expect the majority of salaries to remain the same in 2021 as in 2020 with increases being paid to those hitting required performance targets, regardless of UAE national status,” Samantha Wright, senior recruitment consultant of Hays Emiratization division said in a statement. 

Survey findings: 

> When it comes to job numbers, 49 percent of Emiratis and expats expect to move employers

> 62 percent of Emirati professionals positive about their career prospects in the next 12 months 

> 64 percent of Emiratis’ salaries remained the same in 2020 and 2021

> Only 46 percent of expats’ salaries remained the same

> 10 percent of Emiratis had their salary cuts 

> 21 percent of expats had their salary cuts
