Dubai is full of service providers that specialise in business support. Knowledge Village maintains a large list of training institutes that can help businesses advance the skill sets of their employees, as well as provide management solutions. Although it isn’t mandatory, many Dubai-based businesses provide their employees with private health insurance instead of issuing government health cards.
Companies with a large number of employees often hire transportation providers to transport their workers from the job site to their accommodation. The RTA's Tajeer Bus Renting service enables companies to hire four types of buses that can be controlled & managed through the RTA Operation Control Center, and configured to suit company requirements with features such as attendance systems, internet, breakfast, daily newspapers etc.
Many businesses utilise local and international certification programmes to demonstrate their standards. Likewise, the Department of Economic Development recognises exemplary businesses by giving awards such as the Dubai Quality Award or the Dubai Service Excellence Scheme.
The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry also provides member businesses with a range of services, including economic research facilities, business expansion services, and networking events.
