-- Development and Delivery of Trainings on Labour Standards and Financial Literacy
Equidem is working with HSBC, Emirates Green Building Council (EGBC), along with Multiplex as a key knowledge partner, to plan a series of training sessions on labour standards and financial literacy in the UAE construction sector. The overarching aim of the training is to promote worker welfare in the UAE construction sector by focusing on two pillars, as follows:
- Pillar 1- Labour standards trainings for Multiplex staff:
The main focus of these trainings is to better equip organisations operating in the UAE's built environment across key departments such as the administrative, human resources, legal and management teams, with practical knowledge on how international labour standards may be applied to the core work of the organisation.
- Pillar 2- Financial literacy trainings for workers:
The main focus of these trainings is to better equip workers with knowledge on financial literacy across a number of pre-identified construction worker camps in the UAE, particularly in the light of strained financial resources during the pandemic period.
