UAE’s private sector group Galadari Brothers is offering six days of leave to its employees to experience Expo 2020 Dubai.

The group’s staff can avail the leave any time throughout the duration of the world fair from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022.

The group has also reduced the working hours of employees by one hour throughout the duration of the event.. This will help them leave early from their workplaces and avoid peak-hour traffic. The initiative will also contribute to help reduce the extra traffic the Expo is expected to bring on the roads, a statement said.

The Dubai Government had earlier announced six days of paid leave for its employees to visit the expo and explore the solutions and innovations on display.

Suhail Galadari, co-chairman of Galadari Brothers, said: “The six-day leave will help our staff properly plan their visit to the Expo site. The world’s greatest show is an event which will generate a wealth of ideas, not just during the event, but long after its conclusion. So, for anyone interested in visiting and learning more about what the future will bring, I say that the time is now.”

“We are always listening to what our employees have to say and many of them expressed a keen interest in experiencing all that Expo 2020 has to offer,” added Mohamed Yahya Kazi Meeran, director and group CEO of Galadari Brothers. “To facilitate this, we have launched a number of initiatives such as reduced daily working hours, the option of flexible working timing, and even six days of paid leave so that they can plan their trip to Expo 2020.”

Emirates NBD Group has also said that it will offer its employees one week of paid leave should they wish to volunteer at Expo 2020 Dubai.
