This supports our Emiratisation plan to prepare Emiratis to spearhead the energy and water sectors and appoint Emiratis in leading professional positions in DEWA’s divisions and departments. DEWA has achieved excellent results in Emiratisation, with Emiratis comprising 86.44% of senior management and 50.8% in middle management. DEWA has 3,110 Emirati employees.
