In Dubai, maternity leave is paid for 70 days: As a mother of two, I have decided to increase the length of maternity leave at Alpha Nero to seventy full paid days in order to provide mothers with more time to heal, form bonds with their infants, and make sure their families are taken care of.

The CEO of the company, Simon Hacker, stated, "We are a fast-growing, regional company focused on bringing the best to our team, who are at the core of all we do and achieve as a business." Women are extremely important to our organization. They have a voice and lead from every chair in an industry that is perceived as being predominately male. Our method of keeping up our support for women in business is through this new policy.

The company stated that it has a purpose to improve work-life balance for female employees, offering them the opportunity to have rewarding professions and spend adequate time with their families as moms and caretakers in order to prevent the negative effects of burnout. The company is a signatory to the Women's Empowerment Principle.

"We also give all working moms options for hybrid work and working from home," the spokesperson stated. We also provide returnship options in addition to this. We aggressively seek to hire women who have returned to work after maternity leave, and women make up the majority of our board across all firms. We provide work-from-home choices and period leaves to all of our female coworkers. Additionally, they are permitted to take time off to organize their wedding and other significant events in their lives, such as their child's first day of school, tending to their illness, experiencing a miscarriage, or undergoing fertility treatments.
