About Hay Group in the Middle East


Hay Group is a global management consulting firm that works with leaders to transform strategy into reality. We develop talent, organise people to be more effective and motivate them to perform at their best. Our focus is on making change happen and helping people and organisations realise their potential.

As Managing Director for the Middle East it’s my job to inspire our consultants to make these changes happen within our regional client organisations. Hay Group has been established in the Middle East for more than 20 years, during which time we have guided a huge range of organisations through periods of phenomenal change.

Our clients come from the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, in every major industry and across the Middle East and North African region from Egypt in the west to Oman in the east. Right now, our focus with clients is on regional challenges such as nationalisation of the GCC workforces, the appetite for sustainable leadership development, and the continual need to provide an attractive employee value proposition.

Globally, we have over 2,600 employees working in 88 offices in 49 countries. This includes more than 120 employees in the Middle East region. At this exciting time, Hay Group is expanding its regional footprint with new resources on the ground. We currently have offices in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha and Riyadh.

For more than 60 years, we have been renowned for the quality of our research and the intellectual rigour of our work. In the Middle East this has translated into a number of thought leadership papers which you can read in our download centre as well as pioneering projects in‘fit to role’ and nationalisation. Our compensation and benefits database is by far the largest and most comprehensive in the region, including data for more than 1400 organisations in 15 countries.

At Hay Group we pride ourselves on transforming research into actionable insights. We give our clients breakthrough perspectives on their organisation and we do it in the most efficient way to deliver the best recommendations and solutions for their business.

We look forward to working with you.
