Biz-group, a business strategy and corporate consultancy company, has been ranked the best SME to work for in the UAE.
With offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, biz-group came top of a poll by the Great Place To Work Institute thanks to its ‘sound and people-centred workplace practices, especially in hiring, inspiring, welcoming, and thanking staff.’
Five other SMEs also acknowledged in the survey of the best SMEs to work for in the emirates were: DABO & CO, Emitac Healthcare Solutions, Eton Institute, Leminar and Paramount.
“We are really pleased to find some extraordinary HR programs and practices among the country’s small and medium companies, which businesses of all sizes can learn from,” said David Robert, CEO, Great Place to Work Gulf.
“With some 230,000 SMEs registered in the UAE, there is no doubt that this is an important sector to the local economy.”
The annual study assessed the level of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie within an organisation, with two-thirds of a company’s score dependent on feedback from its staff.
Abdul Baset Al Janahi, CEO of Dubai SME, said: “I am very pleased to know that our SMEs have not been left out of such recognition by an acclaimed international institute that measures great places to work.
“SMEs, especially, face acute human resource challenges that hinder their full development potential.”
