THE new phase of Work Bundle, a pivotal component of the United Arab Emirates’ digital evolution, spearheaded by its government, is likely to positively impact nearly seven million employees within more than 600,000 enterprises throughout the Gulf nation.

With the integration of a unified online platform, tasks that previously consumed a month can now be accomplished in just five days, according to a report by NRI Focus. While mandatory steps have been streamlined from 15 to 5, the required documents have been minimized from 16 to 5.

Work Bundle represents a unified platform designed to enhance the efficiency of employee and business management in the UAE’s private sector enterprises by offering a comprehensive suite of integrated services.

The platform facilitates various tasks such as employment renewal, medical examination, and job cancellation, among others.

It also consolidates processes across key government entities including the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, Dubai Health Authority, Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, and the Department of Economy and Tourism.
