Retailers in the UAE should start actively recruiting talent from the region and abroad in preparation for Expo 2020, a top official at Thought Leaders Middle East, said Tuesda, according to an official statement.
“With Expo 2020 only six years away, retailers must plan well in advance to meet the fast-shrinking talent pool if they have to keep ahead of their competition,” Prakash Menon, executive director of Thought Leaders Middle East, said.
“In the months to come, we are going to witness a fierce war for talent among business groups and companies to retain not only their best employees but also recruit the leading achievers from among the competition’s ranks,” Menon added.
The comments were made during the launch of the “Retail Mastery” Program in Dubai.
The program is a special curriculum created by Thought Leaders Global to help the next generation of retail leaders be successful.
According to Oxford Economics estimates, Expo 2020 will create more than 277,000 job opportunities in the UAE between 2013 and 2021.
