Future Metro has bagged the Taqdeer Award for its commitment to employee welfare.
The Taqdeer Award, which took place on December 2017, is the world’s first points-based award programme that promotes and celebrates excellence in labour relations.
Future Metro has been awarded a four-star rating of the Taqdeer Awards, and has been particularly recognised for its work in the areas of labour policy, and culture and work environment.
Participating companies were judged based on the provided examples of their employment practices and comprehensive use of global benchmarks.
The companies were awarded a rating ranging from one to five stars, based on a number of points they receive in a rigorous evaluation of their entry by an independent judging committee.
Construction companies that achieved five- or four-star ratings received a certificate.
Aleksandr Shestakov, CEO, Future Metro, said: “I feel humble but at the same time incredibly proud in receiving the HH Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award - honouring labourers and companies for excellence. I'm almost lost for words. Even being nominated for this award is an incredible honor, particularly given the extraordinary strength of the field this year, but to win against such strong competition is just amazing.”
He added: “I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Taqdeer for honouring us with this award. Then I would like express my gratitude to the client and the employees of Future Metro without whom this award would not have been possible. This award is as much for every single employee as it is for me. Once again thank you very much.”
Launched by the government of Dubai under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, the Taqdeer Awards were created to showcase and strengthen Dubai’s position as home to the most progressive employers in the Middle East.
