Business Women as Key Changes for Businesses in the Middle East

The hot topics of ways of seeking new sources of talent, the role of reward in attracting and retaining talent and legislative changes were key points of discussion among industry experts at a recent leadership forum in Dubai.

 
PRLog - Jan. 18, 2013 - The thought leadership forum was part of a series of forums held by London Business School.

The panel in Dubai included board members, directors and executives from renowned organisations like the Emirates Group, Roche Diagnostics and Accenture.

One key discussion point of the forum was the lack of senior level females in the market, despite the current awareness of this topic. Therefore the panellists exchanged views on a range of recruitment topics, including how to attract more women into their businesses by creating more positive and productive work places.

“Organisations need to change their approach in understanding aspects that make a company an employer of choice. Employees are now more discerning when choosing an employer”, according to Abdulaziz Al Ali from Emirates Group.

A recent announcement by the UAE government made it compulsory to have women on companies’ boards of directors.

Stefan Hart from HSL Partners commented on the current situation: “I asked a question to a very senior Saudi on my last trip: ‘What is going to be the major growth area over the next five to 15 years in Saudi Arabia?’ His answer was women. He believes with education and the change in attitudes in women in the workplace, that they will make a massive mark within the Kingdom. Things are certainly changing.”

The goal of the thought leadership forums held by London Business School is to provide insight and understanding into the latest business trends and marketplace developments.
Current London Business School students were able to attend the forums, as well as alumni and recruiters, who listened to key issues faced by companies recruiting talent in the region.
