H.E. AbdulAziz Al Ghurair, CEO of Mashreq
Mashreq proudly announced that it has received the Gallup Great Workplace Award 2014, the first and only financial institution in the Region to receive such prestigious international recognition. The annual award recognizes the best-performing workforces in the world, and Mashreq was chosen as one of a group of 36 elite institutions for its ability to create an engaged workplace culture.
The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on the most rigorous workplace research ever conducted. A panel of workplace experts evaluated the award-winning organizations. Mashreq demonstrated Engagement Excellence through having one the most productive and engaged workforces in the world.
H.E. AbdulAziz Al Ghurair, CEO of Mashreq commented, “We are proud to be the first and only UAE Bank have received this recognition. Personally, I strongly believe that having an engaged workforce is a prerequisite for the success of any organization. When you have fully engaged employees who are committed and focused not only on providing outstanding service but also are passionate about their jobs that is the ultimate goal for any company.”
The Gallup survey to assess employee engagement, which forms one of the key inputs for this award, was extended to all of Mashreq’s 3700 staff across the world.
Al Ghurair continued, “By creating a challenging environment where excellence is the standard, we at Mashreq enable our highly motivated team to consistently raise the bar for the level of service we offer as well as the innovative banking solutions we create. At Mashreq we believe that when you have the right team anything is possible.”
Dr. James Harter, Chief Scientist at Gallup said, “These awards-winning organizations set a new standard for workplace excellence. They have proven track records for improving lives along with performance. The management tenets they practice have proven value in both thriving and struggling economies overall.”
