Wednesday 11 January 2017

Abu Dhabi - MENA Herald: Abu Dhabi Ports’ IBTIKAR programme (Arabic for innovation), has been awarded the Gold level accreditation by ideasUK, one of the most prominent associations for the promotion of employee involvement programmes in the UK and beyond. The announcement took place at the annual ideasUK conference held in London lately.
Since inception in December 2013, the IBTIKAR scheme has continued to encourage the active participation of employees. It acts as a platform to channelise their innovative spirit to generate ideas that drive business growth and development. The accreditation of IBTIKAR by ideasUK marks a new milestone for Abu Dhabi Ports as the first ports company to receive this acclaim worldwide.
Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, commented: “Outstanding achievements start with ideas, but great ideas can only be generated through collaboration between members of an integrated team that embraces the spirit of participation. At Abu Dhabi Ports, we believe in teamwork and the value of listening to our employees, in order to enrich their suggestions further to serve customers in the best way possible.”
He added: “Receiving the Gold level accreditation from ideasUK is further proof of our dedication to stimulate innovation and adopt new ideas that promise to elevate performance. The practical application of those ideas is a vital cornerstone of our organisational development and growth. I thank and congratulate all those who have participated in IBTIKAR over the past four years and look forward to even higher levels of engagement in the years to come.”
The ideasUK accreditation programme is a way for organisations to internally and externally promote their employee innovation scheme. The accreditation process subjects each employee innovation programme to an external assessment and end-to-end review by ideasUK. Following the assessment, guidance on areas of strength and where to focus improvement efforts is given and accreditation is granted based on the level of excellence.
