  • The cost of living challenges that are perceived to be in place by employees and their action plan if any, to combat inflation and cost of living increases in the GCC/ Middle East.
  • Job and career cycles and trends including turnover, attrition and workplace volatility in the Middle East

7. Rowena DewanA great survey. I hope by doing this survey the employer's or company should also act accordingly with regards to the salary status of expatriates in the middle east considering the high rents and high prices of basic commodities in the middle east. Rowena
