CISCO among the best companies to work

Cisco has been ranked among the top 10 best places to work in the UAE, by Great Place to Work (GPTW), a global research, training and consultancy firm that identifies the best workplaces in over 50 countries worldwide.

The top 25 companies were awarded at the GPTW annual event, recently held at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai. Cisco UAE was recognised for its commitment to creating a workplace that fosters trust, pride and fairness amongst its employees.

“Receiving this recognition as one of the best places to work in the UAE in our first year of participation is both exciting and a great honour. We believe that technology alone doesn’t drive innovation, people do — which is why we aspire to give our employees the space, freedom and support to make amazing things happen. Our people and culture remain crucial to our success, and this recognition provides us with the opportunity to continue learning, improving and transforming Cisco UAE into an even greater place to work,” said Shukri Eid, Managing Director – East Region at Cisco Middle East.

The GPTW’s mission is to build a better world by helping organisations become great places to work. It analyzes policies, process and practices in each participating company along with data obtained from direct surveys with employees offering a rigorous representation of the organisation from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture.
