Companies in UAE among world’s 25 best workplaces
The list of the world’s 25 Best Workplaces has been released – and once again, companies with a UAE presence feature on this list.
This year’s ranking of the 25 World’s Best Workplaces has been published by leading global workplace culture authority Great Place to Work, in partnership with Fortune.
For the first time, tech giant Cisco tops the list, replacing Salesforce which drops to No. 3, and global hospitality giant Hilton taking second place.
Besides Cisco and Hilton, multiple companies with presence in the UAE and Saudi Arabia made it once more to the 2019 list, including DHL Express who moved up from the 6th position in 2018 to the 4th position in 2019 and SAS also moved up from the 10th position in 2018 to the 9th position in 2019 ; AbbVie maintained their 16th position from last year.
“Congratulations to the World’s Best Workplaces,” Michael C. Bush, the CEO of Great Place to Work Inc. said.
“It is a big challenge to build a high-trust culture that is great for employees in many countries across the globe. These organizations have bold leaders who have risen to the challenge–they are the vanguard showing millions of organizations worldwide that is possible and desirable to create a great place to work for all.”
To qualify for consideration in this year’s ranking, companies must appear on at least five of Great Place to Work’s national Best Workplaces lists, which are published with media partners in 58 countries and territories, and also must employ more than 5,000 workers globally.
More than 8,000 organizations participated in the survey, representing the voices of more than 12 million workers worldwide. The full list of 25 companies can be found here.
