HE explained that the privileges would touch the lives of approximately 70 thousand employees working in ministries and federal bodies, and play host to a number of partnerships with private sector institutions that would secure a series of lucrative offers in the form of various goods and services provided.
He continued: "This development came about in the pursuit of staff support as we motivate employees; promoting higher levels of job satisfaction and loyalty."
Juma Al Majid commended the role of the federal government in supporting and invigorating federal employees, for the great impact it will have in propelling the UAE's rank among developed nations.
He also called upon public and private sectors to open more channels of communication in order to continue to create lucrative partnerships between the two, stressing their integral role that federal employees play and the need to honour their endeavours.
Dr. Abdul Rahman Al Awar commented that the commission, through its various projects and initiatives, aspires towards fulfilling the goals set in place by the federal government strategy and the UAE Vision 2021, under the wise leadership presented by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, his brother His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and Their Highnesses the Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates.
He thanked Juma Al Majid for having a sense of responsibility towards society in all of its components, and its fruitful cooperation with the Commission, and the speed of their response to the call for special privileges that benefit the largest employment sectors in the state, which in turn meant that the group was the first institution from the private sector to sign with the initiative.

We would like to thank all who have made this partnership possible through their cooperation during the various stages of the project."
