Job cuts in the GCC region are far from over and hundreds more employees will be impacted before the economic recovery takes hold, according to the results of an Arabian Business poll.

Nearly 60% of the hundreds who took part in our online survey said they believed that developer Deyaar's recent announcement that it had cut 20% of its workforce was 'just the tip of the iceberg'.

They believed many hundreds more across the GCC would become victims of the downturn that has hit the real estate and construction sectors in particular.
