A Wonderful Place to Work: Jumeirah has been added to the UAE list

Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts has been designated as a Great Place to Work by the same-named international workplace benchmarking organisation. The group is one of only a handful of UAE hospitality companies to receive this honour.

The certification is granted based on anonymous employee testimonials.

The Spirit of Jumeirah programme has been one of Jumeirah's proudest workplace initiatives. Introduced for the entire portfolio and corporate offices, the programme includes Live Your Guest Life – a chance for colleagues to experience a stay with Jumeirah; IGNITE Innovation – a colleague-led initiative to find ideas that are great for guests, great for Jumeirah's employees, and great for business; and Women in Hospitality Coaching and Business Leaders MBA Programmes.

Ellen Dubois Du Bellay, chief human resources officer at Jumeirah Group, remarked, "A strong business culture has become increasingly vital to employees, while at the same time workplace standards have altered at an astonishing rate. At Jumeirah, our employees are an intrinsic part of the luxury hospitality experience, and fostering an atmosphere in which employees feel heard, supported, and respected is essential to our collective success.

"During the past few years, we've placed a greater emphasis on upgrading our culture, which we refer to as The Spirit of Jumeirah, in order to retain, develop, and recruit people as well as build our brand's reputation as we expand our global portfolio. The Best Place to Work certification is based on the opinions of our employees, and it is their dedication to our culture and shared values that has enabled us earn this significant recognition.
