Nations and countries are apparently having constant and intensive work on strategies and programs to develop a state of conserved culture and identity to help in making the local culture the most dominant among others of the influencing culture that is appearing along with foreign residents who shared the native locals the prosperity & developments in the country all enjoying living in.

In this concise where so many of us feels related and responsible towards strengthening the reach to a conserved culture state that makes from it an important part of their future strategies, plans, programs and workshops to respond directly through education and awareness creation programs or indirect through media resources to effectively start at all levels or authorities in most of organizations and countries trying to have a strong ties to their history, heritage and cultural paradigms reflected from the sense on fast emerging societies in today's world of globalization and high level of challenges at all aspects of life distracting the focus on cultural references at a high time of focus towards maximum customer's satisfaction, cut in expenses and maximizing profitability factors and measures along with great attraction programs, resolutions, rules & regulations facilitating more new foreign residents, tourists, mergers and investors.

The fact is appearing as no matter to efforts done on programs creating cultural awareness, the multicultural society is in process to get as a measure to progressing society in developing countries. Today and in all societies we see and feel strong effects and or influence from others culture into any society in the world but in different ratio from one society to another, and supporting that the fast development in technology on both communications and transportations besides the other means or tools. As an example to that what we see in Dubai the most shining city in United Arab Emirates towards more global multicultural society concerned about the developments on local nationals and the country local resources by maximum utilizations of positive factors made available within the multicultural society.


People the employees who live in multicultural society forms a complex of communication methods based on the characteristics of individuals forming that society and the needs or benefits behind forming part of that society for each and every individual is part of it. The motive for each individual in such societies was initially the prospect potential in the opportunity rising from it and constructing the goal and mission to accomplish within multicultural society, it has to be of raped change and constant development, always the individual is in need to prove competency as a result effecting the way of communication the employee adopts and always assess for better communication and accomplishments.

In Dubai the employees practiced the communications skills among each other as effectively and reflecting in the survey conducted with positive results in this regards which also includes or proves the local nationals as expressing in showing the deep and old relations and understanding to neighboring culture and the level of good education the local nationals had added value to them and proving capabilities in making his existence in multinational organizations supported by a great market share in workforce and manpower of local markets.

Generally the local nationals are very social in nature and open to others culture as well, he loves the concept of tourism locally inside the country and internationally as expressed in the tourism market and a business value of profit making from UAE market, and from the nature of his country approaching many countries with direct relations acquired him many values and qualities shaping their personality and effecting positively in overcoming barriers to effective communications and making him successful in his life. Local nationals appears in many occasions locally, regionally and internationally and in many different presentations or contests appears individually and government officials and willingness to participate in competitions representing his nation or country as appeared in the endurance competition the head of state, the normal local individual and foreign team members all celebrated the participation and happy moments.

The contributions to nature, humanity or our earth saving in many occasions appeared locally, regionally and internationally and at all levels from head of state to a normal personal contributions with remarkable history of support and many of appreciations on that. Local nationals gained great amount of confidence from the positive and effective communications models shown by their elders and made of it a vision to successful business and personal developments also the local national made up his mind to greater challenges and competitions proving his capabilities and skills in making advantage of all existing resources and accumulated experiences and applying all advices of the elders and UAE icons to not just accept the success state but to build on it the vision to lead and not only locally but international as well. It is appearing very obvious from analyzing the survey where the clear majority in the market place are of age category (20-40) those who are actively learning, applying and teaching by the collective contributions to others in supporting and encouragements by effective communications and doing by leading in various domains a local individual works with high level of responsibility whether he or she managing the unit as in Dubai TV how difficult to tell if the employee is a unit leader or executive officer.


Employers or managers are also part of society and accordingly a culture role represents a major characteristic on them personally and the organization in general but in less consideration as profitability is the motto inside. Dubai in short time passed great challenges towards successful multicultural society employers made great advantages out from it and the variety or mix in workforce is being utilized as more selective for the best of the organization whether it is a private or public sector and all shall stand responsible of the profitability in organization's financial status where his or her team members are of local nationals or not, in return the local nationals gains massive accumulative experiences adding value to him in strengthening the effective communications skills in multicultural society feeling proud representing their culture in taking the chance introducing it or making activities on traditional event allowing others as well to present their culture in personal attitude or activities he should participate actively in their events as how major private or public sector organizations celebrate their cultural event freely and openly as how we practice the new year celebrations.

We find at this time the major players in the technology market are having their regional offices and local nationals in their operations teams as normal staff member proving skills of effective communications and having more chances to build on skills and experiences more and more by supporting these organizations to have special considerations in modifying rules and regulations encourages them plan for a long future among us where more of opportunities for local nationals to work, learn and practice effective communications by doing and evaluation a chance for all to progress and prosper the local nationals, local government and the multinational organization who is going to have better support, services and the local skilled manpower.
