MSD recognized as a Great Place to Work highlighting commitment to employees

MSD, a leading global pharmaceutical company, is proud to announce it has been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute, United Arab Emirates. This prestigious recognition is a direct result of MSD’s initiatives to create and sustain a diverse and vibrant workplace. 

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation. This certification was based on direct, validated feedback from MSD employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience. 

The 2019 results of the independent assessment demonstrate MSD’s commitment to cultivating a strong culture within the workplace. In comparison with other companies in the local market, the MSD survey found high levels of pride, communication, a caring and collaborative approach to employees and a high level of integrity and justice. MSD’s HR practices and employee-driven initiatives have allowed the company to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational missions and values. 

The strong results may be a direct result of the company’s diversity and inclusion initiatives. Regionally, MSD attracts a high caliber of employees from around the world and has a high female representation which is growing year-on-year, as the company is continually striving to become even more diverse. The company is also proud to have a strong millennial workforce that brings new ways of working and achieving success.

“We are thrilled to announce our employees have named MSD UAE a Great Place to Work® as a true reflection of our commitment to our people. Our employees are our most valuable resource and work daily to fulfil our mission to help improve health around the world. We are constantly seeking to make our workplace an environment which allows our employees demonstrate and develop their talents, in which they feel their skills and creativity are valued, where they feel engaged everyday doing their work” said Mazen Altaruti, AVP Managing Director GCC at MSD.

“We have worked long and hard to create a vibrant, people-centric culture among our employees, so this award is confirmation our ongoing efforts are paying off. We ensure a diverse workforce, with fair representation as our differences are our source of strength that allow us to appreciate nuances, develop respect, and ensure stronger business results” continued Altaruti. “We are committed to creating a productive environment and a unique company culture where employees contribute, grow and flourish on our journey to deliver excellence to our customers and patients. Above all, we aspire to have a great impact on the field of medicine, but this can only be done by harnessing the power of our workforce”.
