du, the fastest-growing telecommunications company in the region, is the only telecommunications company to have been recognised at the Gallup Great Workplace Awards globally. Ibrahim Nassir, Chief Human Resources & Shared Services Officer, du, accepted the Award during a ceremony held in Nebraska, United States.

Gallup is a US based global consulting company that delivers forward-thinking research, analytics, benchmarks and advice to help leaders create an employee-friendly conducive work environment. Combining more than 75 years of experience with its global reach, Gallup has offices in more than 40 countries with a reach of 160 countries.

The Gallup Great Workplace Award recognises exceptional organisations, whose leadership understands that employee engagement drives real business outcomes, and who have mastered how to engage their workforces. As the only telecommunications company amongst the 36 global winning companies, du exemplifies engagement standards in the industry.

“Employee engagement is a top priority for us,” said Nassir. “In 2013, the results of our annual Gallup survey showed improvement across all parameters, with a score of 4.12 that placed us in the 55th percentile in Gallup’s global benchmark. We aim to continuously improve our engagement levels by listening to our employees and following global best practices, as we understand the immense benefits that come from an engaged workforce and the positive effect that this has on sustainability levels, both within our company and for the larger UAE community,” he added.

In 2013, 89% of du’s employees were highly engaged, placing the company in the 57th Percentile of Gallup’s Middle East Database, and in the 55th Percentile of Gallup’s Global Database. Gallup Great Workplace Award winners span the globe and represent all facets of business. These award winners average a ratio of engaged employees to actively disengaged employees that is more than five times the ratio in the U.S. and more than 20 times the ratio of workforces globally.
