Landmark Group brands amongst Best Workplaces in the UAE

Dubai: Landmark Group homegrown brands, Centrepoint, Babyshop, Shoexpress, and Emax were recognized as one of UAE’s best employers by global research and consultancy, Great Place to Work® institute yesterday. The brands were awarded the certification following an extensive employee engagement survey.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience and the leadership behaviours proven to deliver market-leading revenue and increased innovation. The GPTW rankings cover a wide cross section of businesses, from furniture and fashion retailers to courier forwarders and hotels. Organisations are reviewed on multiple parameters - of credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie by employees within the organisation.

Currently, Landmark Group employs over 55,000 employees across 23 countries. Over the last few years, the Group initiated the Landmark Happiness Movement to build the foundation of a great workplace. As a part of this initiative, a dedicated people engagement framework was built that focused on four key pillars - reinforcing core organizational values, women in workforce, enhanced health and well-being of its employees, and ensuring a high degree of transparency amongst its employees.

Nisha Jagtiani, Group Director, Landmark Group, said: “This recognition from the Great Place To Work® Institute, is a big achievement for us and we are pleased to have received this recognition for four of our homegrown brands. As a Group, we are committed to providing our employees with a positive and happy work environment which helps us grow and build a strong business together.
