Scores for the index were obtained through a survey, based on four main indicators: Job loyalty, positivity, job satisfaction and functional harmony.
The average employee happiness at Dubai government entities was found to be 85 per cent, including 86 per cent for job loyalty, 84 per cent for positivity, 84 per cent for job satisfaction and 85 per cent for functional harmony.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed stressed the need to raise the happiness of employees across Dubai government entities by creating a “favourable work environment that encourages productivity and excellence”.
He also directed the 10 lowest ranked government entities to immediately undertake initiatives to improve their work environment.
“The happiness of our employees is one of Dubai government’s highest priorities…Ensuring a happy workforce creates the essential foundation for teamwork and excellence,” he said.
“It is very encouraging to see that the highest scores in the index were achieved for the Job Loyalty indicator. This assures us that we are on the right track.”
Sheikh Hamdan also commissioned a new survey to evaluate the progress achieved by government entities in creating safe and supportive working environments for their employees in 2020, taking into account policies adopted amid the Covid-19 crisis.
