Senior representatives from the four Dubai-based companies, which are being honoured for training and developing their employees to meet specific business goals, will receive a plaque and a certificate of merit at the prestigious Dubai Quality Award 2002, which will be held at Jumeirah Conference Ballroom on February 22.
This has been organised to take place at the Dubai Quality Award ceremony which is held under the patronage of General Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE's Defence Minister.
Over 1,200 top government officials and senior executives from leading local and international companies are expected to attend the gala award ceremony.
The Investors in People (Dubai) chapter was formed in January 2002 through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the DED and Investors in People UK. Dubai was the first in the Arab world to sign up for the path breaking human development programme from the UK. Investors in People focuses on developing employees and encouraging them to achieve organisational objectives.
The IIP programme identifies good practices that can then be taken up by employees within a company for all-round performance improvement and in meeting clearly defined targets.
Essa Kazim, Director-General of Dubai Financial Market and Co-ordinator General of the Dubai Quality Award, said: "The four companies in Dubai with whom we are partnering to spread the IIP standard in the Emirate is a true indicator of the progressive ties between the public and private sectors.
"The obvious beneficiaries from the IIP programme are the companies involved, their employees and, by extension, the community they are an integral part of. Unstinting efforts are required from all sides to ensure the best practices in the world are followed to ensure the well being of our society as a whole."
