Microsoft best company to work for in UAE
Survey shows Microsoft Gulf is best employer in UAE
Microsoft has been identified as the best company to work for in the UAE, according to a new ranking from the Great Place To Work Institute.
The ranking is based on feedback from questionnaires sent to a random batch of employees at each company, covering areas such as company culture, communication and perks, along with an audit of each company, including pay and benefit programmes and hiring policies.
The ranking found Microsoft to be the best employer in the Emirates, based on its commitment to work/life balance, and perks such as three days off a year to devote to community volunteer work. The company ranked top for employee trust and team spirit.
Employment website Bayt.com also made the top ten of the list, coming in at number eight, thanks to its policy of allowing employees to pitch business ideas and other communications through internal websites.
