Today's market is changing at the speed of light. Nowhere in the world is this so explicit as in smart cities, cities that literally never sleep. Just like New York, Dubai is one of those cities that never sleeps.
Dubai is not only a popular destination for tourists, with skyscrapers, shopping malls and a beautiful desert. It's a city where businessmen and investors meet, a technology centre and a real hub for talent. It attracts more than 15 million tourists annually and with the Expo 2020, it expects more than 20 million visitors. 200 nationalities represent 85% of the city's population, which is a huge resource for the country.
The outsourcing industry in the country is growing annually as a result of the available technological developments in the U.A.E. and the great awareness of the importance and possibilities of outsourcing in various sectors. Nowadays the U.A.E. has the second-largest outsourcing industry in the MENA region, according to a report released by Frost and Sullivan and Dubai Outsource Zone.
According to Clutch, a customer marketing platform for B2C brands, the UAE is an ideal place to outsource. It’s lately been coming into its own as a location. Compared to India and the Philippines, the U.A.E. is not overexposed, not yet widely known, so the market has yet to become oversaturated. Given the strong technological evolution the country has made so far, it’s well established, which means that it has the infrastructure to provide security for both businesses and citizens.
Why the U.A.E. is an excellent resource to outsource:
- Time Zone: GMT+4
The U.A.E. is close to Europe, so the time zone is slightly more convenient than countries further east.
Since it’s a popular place to live and work, and being the centre of the world, it attracts a wide range of nationalities from all over the world. The U.A.E. is home to more than 200 nationalities with only 15% of its population being Emiratis, making it the world' s largest immigrant population.
As a result of the diversity of the population, English is widely spoken in Dubai.
- Among the world’s most powerful cities to attract talent
The UAE remains a driving force for professionals who want to pursue a career, as a new survey of Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2019 found it to be one of the top 20 countries in the world for attracting and retaining professional talent. According to the report, the UAE ranked highest in the region and 19th in the world. The UAE gained an edge over many other European and developed countries, including France, Spain and Japan.
- Quantity & Quality
It’s not only the number of talent available on the market, it’s also the quality that is of a high level. Professionals come to the U.A.E. to build their careers with a view to a long term future perspective.
Today, Dubai wants to be recognised for its pioneering technology rather than for the artificial beaches, towering skyscrapers and gigantic air-conditioned shopping malls that have defined its recent past and reputation.
Dubai, the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, has undergone a remarkable transformation in record time.
In 2017 the government launched the Dubai 10X initiative, in order for the city Dubai to remain in the forefront and to place the city ahead of other world cities. It’s a call from the government to embrace disruptive innovation as a fundamental mantra.
Disruptive innovation refers to exploiting available technologies to deliver new or existing services in radically different ways that are design-thinking-based and customer-focused.
Disruptive innovation will create new operating and business models that replace traditional services and provide multiple times with the value for end-users and customers.
One year later, in 2018, the government launched Dubai10X 2.0.
First place is no longer a goal, but 10 years ahead is what we aspire to be.
Cooperation, working together, exchange ideas.
Work as a team to achieve our goals.

Let’s talk about your projects
Big visions and a great mindset
Because the U.A.E. government is constantly working on new strategies, we too can benefit from this.
For example, strong efforts are being made to attract global technical and technological talent, but also to create more national talent in the field of technology.
This is the main reason why we have less to no difficulties in attracting talent.
Professionals with a mindset like the 10X initiative will feel attracted to a city like Dubai.
High Performers want a challenge and an innovative working place. They, just like us, do not settle for second best.
This is what we are looking for in talent.
