Mashreq wins big at Global Gallup Awards

  • For the 4th consecutive year since 2014, Mashreq receives the Great Workplace Award again in 2017

Mashreq, one of the leading financial institutions in the UAE, proudly announces that it has won the Gallup Great Workplace Award in 2017, thus winning this award for the 4th consecutive year. This is an exceptional milestone win, as no other bank in the region has achieved this status to date. This win places Mashreq in a pool of 37 global companies who have won this award in 2017, recognising the bank as a world-class employer.

Gallup has surveyed millions of employees around the world to determine what sets great workplaces apart regardless of company size, location, or industry. The very best organizations all share one trait – their intentional focus on engaging their employees. This is something that Mashreq has been doing for many years across its different locations, long before it became a global trend.

Mashreq’s CEO, H.E. Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, commented, “It is an absolute honor that Mashreq is the first and only bank in the entire region to accomplish this prestigious status four years in row since 2014. The bank, over the years has built an exceptional work environment for all the employees – we have a responsibility to ensure that every single employee is allowed to achieve their potential through working in a secure and engaged work environment.”

Al Ghurair continued: “Our diverse workforce is an asset to our growing business and we take pride in our efforts to understand each employee and ensure that the team is widely engaged. We provide international standards and maximum opportunities for all our employees to make the most of our multicultural and ethnically diverse workplace.”

The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on research across a variety of organisations. The data is analyzed and evaluated by a panel of experts looking for organisations who have exceptional business performance impacted by creating high levels of employee engagement.
