Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 24 December 2018: To celebrate its growing family of over 2,000 employees, DAMAC Properties has recently launched the ‘DAMAC Long Service Awards’. The first edition of the awards ceremony, which was held last week at the Trump International Golf Course, recognised team members who have been instrumental in DAMAC’s success story.
“I am humbled to be part of this celebration in the honour of my colleagues, some of whom have been with us for over 20 years and continue to be fundamental to our family. This ceremony not only highlights their efforts, but it is also a reiteration of our commitment towards them,” explained Hussain Sajwani, CM of DAMAC Properties. “We endeavour to maintain our close, family-oriented approach, despite rapid growth. None of this would have been possible without our long-serving team members who have been the building blocks of DAMAC’s culture of excellence.”
The DAMAC Long Service Awards honours employees who have dedicated over five years to the growth of their team and is part of a series of employee initiatives that are being rolled out by the leading real estate developer. This includes the expansion of the DAMAC Active programme, which promotes an active lifestyle through access to health facilities, regular wellness workshops and workout sessions.
As DAMAC continues to extend its footprint beyond the Middle East, it has stepped up efforts to attract the best talent in the industry, including the adoption of company-wide integrated technology solutions to ensure that team members have the best tools on hand. They are also following the framework of Smart Dubai’s Happiness Agenda, which aims to identify and address the needs of a shifting global demographic.
