The FM provider was recognised by the Great Place to Work company, which compiles its listing of outstanding workplace cultures on an annual basis
Great Place to Work has named Dulsco as one of the Top 20 Companies to Work For in the UAE for 2016.
Within the UAE’s edition, which is now in its sixth year running, Dulsco joined a handful of prominent businesses including EMC, Weber Shandwick, Eros Group and 3M.
Taking the top spot for a third consecutive year was DHL, and was followed by The One as runner up, and by Omnicom Media Group in third.
Commenting on this year’s listing, Maha Zaatari, managing director of Great Place to Work in the UAE, shared: “There is a growing understanding among business leaders in the UAE that workplace culture has become a significant competitive advantage for organisations to attract and retain top talent.”
The ranking of Top 20 Companies to Work For is based on an annual benchmarking study that assesses the level of credibility, respect and camaraderie within an organisation.
Roughly two-thirds of a company’s score is based upon confidential feedback from employees, while the remaining score is based on an audit of HR practices and management.
“The next decade will mark the post-oil transformation of the UAE and the government has made clear the importance of developing, attracting and retaining the best talent to achieve sustainable growth,” added Zaatari.
“We need more companies contributing to this mission through cultures that nurture and develop their employees in terms of their capabilities and wellbeing. This focus on human capital has been proven to improve the happiness quotient of people and also make a significant contribution to helping the UAE realize its ambition to be the best country in which to live and work,” he concluded.
