Overview Block One [REBRAND]

A positive outlook for the Gulf

Despite global disruptions, the GCC remains steadfast, and an active labour market is expected this year. This is positive news for jobseekers and a challenge for employers looking to attract and retain top talent. In this new era of work, professionals prioritise work-life balance and flexible working, but a working model migration could mean that employees are expected in the workplace more in 2023. Ensuring alignment is vital for future success, particularly with regards to the skills dissonance. Employees and employers seeking to achieve their career and business objectives must understand the current landscape. For a comprehensive overview of the market and the latest salary data, consult the Hays GCC Salary Guide.

The GCC is now the region with one of, if not the most, positive economic outlooks for the coming years. This means that 2023 should deliver a buoyant labour market, with new jobs created across multiple sectors and geographies in the region.
