Public and private sector organizations honoured at the 4th edition of the annual Happiness@ Work Award
 
Dubai, October 20, 2021: The 2020 edition of the Happiness@Work Award recognized and celebrated the happiest and most innovative organizations in the region that disrupted existing employee engagement and wellbeing norms to create a new normal in the workplace. This cycle of the award unveiled regional companies that stood out for creating a happy workplace, balancing work and life, sustainability focus, and for a host of other positive steps for an inclusive workplace.


Instituted by Sustainable Mindz, an expert centre for strategic sustainability and corporate responsibility in the Gulf and MENA region, the Happiness @ Work award aims to promote happiness and positivity in the region's workplaces. The first of its kind initiative in the UAE and wider region, the Happiness@Work Award has completed 4 cycles and so far, 54 organizations have received 64 awards across 6 different categories. 


“Regardless of the challenges the world faced in 2020, organizations have continued to work towards creating happiness and value for their employees. Every organization that nominated themselves for the current edition of the Happiness@Work Award is a winner, as they have demonstrated that they take employee happiness seriously and are committed to creating a workplace culture that values employees and their wellbeing.,” said Vineetha Mathew, Founding Partner, Sustainable Mindz 


The 2020 cycle of the Happiness@Work Award received a total of 40 nominations in different categories. Based on multiple parameters, the applications were evaluated by an eminent panel of jury across seven different award categories, the Happiest Workplace being at the helm of the honours.
Dubai Police was adjudged to be the happiest workplace in the public sector category while Schneider Electric bagged the same honour from the private sector. In the SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) category, the award went to Xworks Interiors LLC, and King Abdullah University of Science & Technology – Government Affairs (KAUST) picked up the honour in the Not-for-Profit category.


Commenting on the occasion, Dr Saamdu Chetri, Chair of Jury, Happiness@Work Award said “Life's purpose is to serve others and the environment around us. The Happiness@Award is doing this by recognizing engaged and happy workplaces. Happiness is a process and not an end goal. Happiness depends on how we perceive, sense, and understand from within to see the outside - everything we see is within and not outside of us. Thus, let us change within to see the outside we want.”


The Best Employee Engagement Program category awards went to Dubai Police and Fujairah Natural Resource Corporation (FNRC) in the public sector, Aafaq Islamic Finance in the private sector, Paramount Computer Systems in the SME, and King Abdullah University of Science & Technology – Government Affairs (KAUST) in the Not-for-Profit sector.
