Careers Network

People with disabilities and their inclusion in the workplace are no longer absent from the business agenda. Disability inclusion now features in many policies and is fast gaining momentum in business strategies. Including people with disabilities and accommodating their disability-related needs are important moves for companies in terms of talent resourcing and social responsibility as well as compliance with national legislation. Managers are well aware of the importance of disability inclusion for their business' success, but might still have questions on how initiatives can be implemented successfully. How do they get started effectively? How can initiatives be improved?

In partnership with the Community Development Authority, Manzil and Sustainable Square, Emirates NBD launched the #TogetherLimitless Careers Network to help hire and onboard employees with disabilities free of cost. If your company is interested in diversifying its workforce, working towards inclusion and hiring a person with a disability, contact our team today!

TogetherLimitless Careers Network: Nilofar's Story

We are surrounded by incredible people. People of all ethnicities and ages, diverse as the world itself. At some point in time, we might have said that some of these people have a disability. Together, Emirates NBD is working with experts and stakeholders to help our community dissolve obstacles that people with disabilities face. So that tomorrow, "people with disabilities" can simply be "people".

How to prep when hiring people with disabilities

How to prep when hiring people with disabilities

People with disabilities represent a talented, untapped labour force, and hiring them has been shown to improve workplace culture, reduce workforce attrition, and increase a company's bottom line. It also aligns with the UAE vision to create a fully inclusive society for 'people with determination', and turn the Emirates into one of the most disabled-friendly regions in the world. So, once you've decided to hire more people with disabilities, how should you prepare and adapt your work environment?

The UAE has a reputation for constructing the tallest buildings and most spectacular man-made islands, but its national strategy to empower people with disabilities, now known as people of determination (PoD), is just as grand.

How the UAE is Transforming the Lives of People of Determination

Nearly all of the records set in the UAE relate to the biggest, tallest or most expensive. But thanks to the insight of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the latest world-first has a very different set of parameters.With around 50 million people of determination in the Middle East, Dubai is leading the way in its mission to become a disabled-friendly city by 2020, when the World Expo will put Dubai center stage.
