Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is the second largest Arab economy after Saudi Arabia. The UAE is also the 30th largest global economy, and has the world’s 18th highest GDP per capita (USD 44,200) rate.

A traditionally oil-rich nation, the UAE has diversified to future-proof its economy, and non-oil sectors now contribute to almost three-quarters (70%) of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP).

The UAE population is made up largely of expatriates, with around 120,000 UK residents, and it housed a further one million UK visitors during 2014.

Losing a job can be quite tricky, especially if you have a steady career with a stable company – even if you fall way short of being a model professional, it can take a lot to get your P45.

That said, it can also be all-too-easy to lose your job, especially if you’re prepared to go out in an ignominious blaze of glory – punching a horrible boss, or trashing your work station in a fit of pique ought to do the trick.

In reality though, if someone kills their career, it’s usually a slow and painful death, and will probably contain one of these seven deadly workplace sins…
