DIFC launches The Governor’s Awards
Dubai, March 23, 2009
The Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), in association with the Dubai Quality Group (DQG), launched The Governor’s Awards.
The program aims to recognise and reward employees, departments and projects that demonstrate exceptional commitment to excellence.
To be evaluated on the basis of the European Foundation for Quality Management’s (EFQM), Excellence Model, one of the world’s most highly regarded frameworks for assessing excellence levels, the Awards consist of four categories: distinguished employee, department, project and new employee.
The awards are part of DIFC’s efforts to enhance organisational performance by strengthening service standards and practices and anchoring the culture of excellence among employees at all levels.
“There is no doubt that having an award dedicated to excellence provides a strong impetus for raising employee performance and urges employees to think creatively about enhancing both individual and collective performance,” said Dr Omar Bin Sulaiman, governor of DIFC.
“People constitute our most important resource and these awards are aimed at rewarding employees who demonstrate exceptional competencies and capabilities.”
“I’m sure that the awards will have a positive impact on the performance of all departments and employees within DIFC and contribute to DIFC’s efforts in enhancing service levels,” added Dr Wafi Dawood, chairman of DQG.
Apart from The Governor’s Awards, DQG has helped in organising and evaluating many excellence awards in the UAE including the Emirates Energy Award and the Emirates Business Women Award.-TradeArabia News Service
