5 Challenges that labour faces in Staff accommodation


Every blue-collar and white-collar employee needs rest after a day’s work. The stay offered to them should be adequately equipped and comfortable for them to relax and rejuvenate. Else, it is going to impact their performance at the worksite. Our staff accommodation in Abu Dhabi has been designed with this thought at the focal point.

We have analyzed all the challenges faced by the laborers. The accommodation has been set up considering those. Thus providing safe, comfortable, and serene atmosphere for the staff. Here we are discussing the main 5 challenges a labour faces in staff accommodation. The aim of this article is to offer you insight into checking out the accommodation for your team.

1. Hygienic Conditions

Hygiene has been of paramount importance always. Its value has increased manifold in today’s world. Lack of cleanliness is the first thing that disturbs a person’s stay. A permanent cleaning team and meticulous inspection are mandatory to prevent the living spaces and premises from turning dirty and smelly. So many persons from different countries, and hence different backgrounds, would be sharing a common space in the staff accommodation in Abu Dhabi and other locations. Imagine the condition if the caretaker and the management of the accommodation service are not taking proper care of the area.

2. Condition of Kitchens

The official authorities in the UAE are strict about the living conditions of the laborers. There are stringent laws promulgated for maintaining cleanliness, healthy living spaces, availability of ample space, provisioning of well-facilitated kitchen set up, etc. Nonetheless, the conditions of kitchens many a time may not meet the stipulated criteria. Only a few top staff accommodations in Abu Dhabi like Labotel maintain a diligently designed, maintained, and facilitated kitchen. Many of the labour villages are plagued by unorganized and under-equipped kitchens.  

3. Space, Ventilation, and Air-conditioning

The Middle-east encounters extreme climatic conditions. Both winter and summer can be intolerable. The temperature during summer can go well above 40 degrees Celsius. Imagine the condition if the ventilation and air-conditioning are not functioning properly during such climatic conditions. Along with that, the accommodation may have more members than permitted. Such a horrible condition will adversely affect the laborer’s stay and sleep. Consequently, their productivity would go down heavily. Impacting the business, production, manufacturing, and development programs. Let it be staff accommodation in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, or any other emirate, the company management must inspect and verify before hiring it for the staff.

4. Lack of Adequate Connectivity

Even though many of the labour villages are located in well-connected places, this is a problem with many other labour camps. Connectivity will not only affect the movability of the persons staying in the accommodation but also affect the company’s smooth operations. The transportation of the employees can be problematic many times. It would be advisable to choose a labour accommodation in Abu Dhabi that is at a well-connected spot.

5. Insufficient Facilities

Insufficient facilities are another common challenge for the laborers staying in camps. Accommodation providers might have facilities installed just to meet the guidelines issued by the authority. It may not be sufficient for the number of people sharing the accommodation. This leads to difficulties and wastage of time. Lack of internet connectivity, like WiFi facility, is a common problem faced by the inhabitants. The best way to avoid such a problem is to opt for widely accepted accommodation service providers like Labotel.
