Professional services consultancy WSP has been ranked as the 13th Best Company to Work for in the UAE by Great Place to Work, landing on the list for the fourth consecutive year.

The official list, announced last night at a ceremony in Dubai, is a ranking of the 25 best employers in the region based on the confidential feedback of employees and an audit of management practices.

Companies are judged according to performance in eight key areas: Leadership, wellbeing, giving something back, personal growth, fair deal and how employees feel towards their manager, company and team.

Commenting on the Top Companies List, Maha Zaatari, managing director of Great Place to Work in the UAE, said: “The Best Workplaces list recognises organisations that have demonstrated a truly serious commitment to creating workplaces that foster trust, pride and camaraderie amongst their employees.

“Every organisation that made it onto the list should be proud of this noteworthy accomplishment. Based on our annual benchmarking study, we can say, without a doubt, that these 25 companies are the best workplaces in the UAE.”

According to a statement, WSP’s ranking comes as a result of a number of factors, including helping their people feel inspired, connected and empowered; facilitating regular touch points with company leaders and colleagues, and establishing their own approach to development and learning.

In addition, the company was also awarded for implementing ways of celebrating achievements and supporting charitable causes that affect both employees and the industry in which they operate.

Greg Kane, managing director of WSP in the Middle East, said: “At WSP we pride ourselves on challenging the status quo. Innovative thinking is part of our personality, and as a result, we constantly question the best way to do things, to ensure our people have a unique and rewarding experience of working with us.”

Great Place to Work is a global research, training and consultancy firm that identifies the best workplaces in over 50 countries worldwide.
