Reclaiming Workplace Wellness

Why 50 percent of UAE Employees Want to Quit?

What whole health and wellness means for employees as we continue to recover and return to the workplace
Synopsis

2020 was a difficult year for the entire world, but the UAE and its residents have remained resilient throughout this period. The UAE’s health and wellbeing outlook is stronger than in the global markets according to Cigna’s latest 360 Wellbeing Survey, which reflect the country’s successful efforts to manage the pandemic and an aggressive inoculation program.

However, there is much work to be done. People have consistently suffered from overwork, which has led 50% of the UAE’s working population to consider leaving their jobs. There is a wide gap in the workplace wellness of the country’s citizens and residents, who are among the most stressed in the world. It is time that employers step up and offer more care and support to their staff. We need to work as a community to raise awareness and drive positive change on this front.

Key discussion points:

In this special session, we will focus on what these changes mean for employers and employees in these key areas:

  • Employee expectations vs. employer support
  • Evolving workplace environment
  • Impact on women and the sandwich generation
  • Supporting employee needs for better productivity
  • Enhancing virtual care

We are proud to announce that out of the 21 markets in Cigna’s latest 360 well-being survey, the UAE and KSA are in the top three most positive markets. Both saw an increase in overall well-being scores compared to early 2020. These results are a testament to the swift and decisive actions taken by the government as well as the resilience and cooperation of the UAE population to do their bit in stopping the spread.
