The lowest-performing government entities in the Index were Dubai Customs and Dubai Culture, which scored 81.8% each, followed by the Dubai Land Department with a score of 79.6%, and the Dubai Public Prosecution with a score of 77.8%.
HH Sheikh Hamdan congratulated the top three entities identified as the best performers in the Index, and directed entities that scored below average in the Customer Happiness Index to submit plans to enhance the quality of their services, according to the state-run Dubai Media Office.
Commenting on the results, HH Sheikh Hamdan said: “As part of the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, constantly enhancing excellence is the main focus of the government’s work. Ensuring the happiness of the people is an objective that the government does not compromise on.”
HH Sheikh Hamdan added: “The average Customer Happiness level achieved was 85.2%. Our goal is to reach 100%. A government led by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum should demonstrate exceptional service and settle for nothing less than top rankings across all indicators.”
