Dubai - MENA Herald:

Mashreq, the UAE’s leading financial institution, has been awarded the 2018 Gallup Great Workplace Award for a 5th consecutive year, by global performance-management consulting company, Gallup.

The Gallup Great Workplace Award recognizes organizations for their extraordinary ability to create an engaged workplace culture.

H.E. Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, CEO at Mashreq commented, “Mashreq is honoured to have been awarded this prestigious tribute recognition for a 5th consecutive year. The bank values its people and prides itself on their growth and development. We see this a focus on engagement as a primary pre-requisite to driving performance. We approach engagement through a comprehensive approach, focusing not only on work related aspects, but also on Staff Wellbeing, their family and on having the opportunity to give back to the community”

Receiving the Gallup award for the 5th consecutive year represents a milestone for Mashreq and reflects the wider success the Bank has enjoyed in hiring and retaining talent from all over the world.

Commenting on this achievement, Ashok Gopal, Head of People Development, said, “Mashreq has always strived to put people first. This award is testament to our commitment to developing world-class approaches to engaging our staff – we recognise that a focus on engagement needs to be ongoing and this reflects in an engagement calendar that focuses on actions taken through the year. An example of this ongoing focus is the award winning Staff Wellbeing program ‘Sahtak’. This relentless focus on engagement is the platform that allows us to live our Mashreq Values on an ongoing basis and through that, to achieve world class business performance”

As per Gallup tradition, Mashreq will be presented with the award at a workplace event held in Washington DC, at the Gallup world headquarters in late July.
