A recent report about UAE salaries for 2021 has revealed that 44% of workers in the UAE expect a pay rise in the next 12 months.

In a report published by Hays recruitment agency, 2% of workers are expecting a cut in the near future whereas just over half are confident their pay package will remain the same.

“We do not expect the pandemic to negatively affect salaries in 2021,” said Samantha Wright, senior recruitment consultant with Hays.

This view is reflected by professionals working in the UAE, with 53 per cent expecting their salary to remain the same, year-on-year in 2021, 44 expecting an increase and two per cent expecting a decrease.”

The report also found that the salaries of Emiratis had been more resilient to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic than those of the expatriates in the UAE.

Around 64 per cent of Emiratis’ salaries remained the same in 2020 and 2021, as compared to 46 per cent of expats.

Experts have created a salary guide as part of the Hays 2021 Emiratisation Salary and Employment report, that Emiratis can use when applying to new jobs to compare with other salary packages in the region.

The salaries are broken down in these categories for the private sector and the public sector in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
