Reading Time : 5 minutes

2018 has been a truly pivotal year for conversations about workforce diversity, gender equality and pay gaps all over the world. In the UAE, the government has taken a stance, aiming to be one of the top countries in the world for gender equality by the end of 2021. At Bayut, we have always championed the cause of diversity and believe that equal opportunities for men and women are the backbone of developing a thriving business model where talent, dedication and hard work are the only measures of success. The UAE has been proactive in encouraging workforce diversity and gender equality.

Dubai is easily one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the entire world, home to more nationalities than you can shake a stick at! And no matter where you’re from, this is the season where you’re just always full of festive cheer.

Bayut Academy Year In Review

Reading Time : 3 minutes

We launched Bayut Academy in January 2017. It was, truth be told, a bit of an experiment as we weren’t sure what type of reception we would receive. Well, we couldn’t be happier. Less than one year later, we have had over 156 real estate agencies attend, filled 1,370 seats and delivered more than 3000 hours of training. What Exactly is Bayut Academy?
