DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES — Bain & Company, a global consultancy, announced its collaboration with the World Government Summit as a knowledge partner to promote thought leadership on topics relevant to government officials from around the world. The summit will explore the agenda of the next generation of governments, focusing on harnessing innovation and technology to solve universal challenges facing humanity, and will be held between February 13 - 15 at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.  

Samer Bohsali, senior Partner who leads the Public Sector practice at Bain & Company Middle East said: “We are excited to become a knowledge partner of the World Government Summit. As leading advisors, we tailor our renowned private-sector toolkit and develop innovative solutions to create measurable impact for change-orientated public-sector clients. Our integrated and tailored expertise combined with our vast range of ecosystem partners help governments create lasting change.”

This year’s summit will see the release of The Working Future: A Focus on the GCC – a joint report by Bain & Company and the World Government Summit. The report is based on extensive research by Bain & Company over the past year, examining the motivations and priorities of workers across 19 countries, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The report aims to provide insight into how firms and governments can get ahead in the competitive war for talent.

The report identifies five key themes that are reshaping work in the GCC and globally: how people’s motivations are changing when it comes to working; what differing opinions exist on what makes a "good job"; how automation is helping to re-humanize work; how technological change is blurring organizational boundaries; and why younger generations are becoming increasingly overwhelmed with workplace demands.

Wissam Yassine, Partner at Bain & Company Middle East, and one of the report co-authors, said: “The report aims to raise awareness about ongoing disruptions to the GCC workplace and introduce leaders to a range of potential solutions to help them respond to these changes and stay ahead in the race for talent.”

Bain & Company has developed a range of talent solutions through its global think tank Bain Futures. It focuses on potential future disruptions to the workplace and provides forward-thinking business and governmental leaders with solutions to reshape their people approaches in light of those disruptions.
