Scholarcy highlights

  • The aim of this study is to conduct an initial investigation of information sharing between the vast number of expatriate employees and the small minority of local employees in Dubai’s private sector workforce
  • Research on the impact of the workforce localization policy has highlighted the frequent marginalization of locals within the expatriate-dominated private sector
  • Future research can pursue this issue to help inform the development of supportive information sharing practices
  • Such practices are an essential part of the creation of a diversity climate, which is necessary to sustain localization
  • It suggests that the exclusion of citizens from the workplace through practices such as “ghost Emiratization” reverberates in the workplace through a lack of information sharing
