5 Things That Turn Off UAE Jobseekers

16/1/2016

According to LinkedIn, 50 per cent of professionals in the UAE would completely rule out a move to a company that is known for being a bad employer, regardless of any pay increase offered.

Jobs may be getting scarce these days, but it doesn’t mean applicants would jump at every employment offer on the table. Like job seekers doing poorly in an interview, hiring companies can also scare away a candidate.

A study conducted among 1,000 full-time workers in the UAE suggested that organizations that have a reputation for high turnover rates, poor performing bosses and lack of career growth opportunities could turn off a potential top talent.

Also discouraging are companies that have a lower profile in the industry and those that tend to put up with a “dysfunctional” or “poorly performing” team.
