Emaar scraps job titles of all staff, chairman


DUBAI – In a surprise move, Dubai’s Emaar informed staff it is scrapping all job titles at the property developer.

In an email, Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar said all job titles will be abolished and all Emaar employees will simply carry their name and department.

The job titles will be scrapped from business cards, emails and other correspondence.

“When you reach the end of this email, you will notice something different. I have no job title. And from this moment onwards, nor do you,” Alabbar said.

The Emaar head said that the property giant wants to focus on its culture and talent pool, not their titles.

“Yes, of course structures are needed, but I believe every single member of our organisation adds great value. Emaar is not a collection of talented individuals, but a team of great pooled talent. Today, I am announcing what is the smallest change that will have the biggest impact for generations to come,” he said.

He hopes the emphasis on talent and not on titles will help employees “enrich the lives of people by winning together, by taking bold actions and complete ownership and by displaying speed in execution”.

“From now on we will pledge to focus on continuous growth and development. We will invest in developing the skills and capabilities of those who have helped us to achieve the success we had in the past and who will be part of our growth journey in the future,” he said. ICA/Expat Media
