Note: Employers include senior/board-level decision-makers and HR managers, who are able to provide insights on hiring intentions and salaries of their respective organisations.

Your answers will be completely anonymous but are important because they will allow us to build a picture of the employment situation across the GCC. Last year we received over 2,500 responses and this year we want to exceed that total in order to provide you with the most informative market report to date.
