The Emirates Group has awarded 35 employees for going above and beyond the call of duty.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline and Group, also presented the ‘Najm Chairman’s Award’ to eight individual and team achievements at a ceremony that took place at Emirates Group Headquarters.
HH Sheikh Ahmed said operations and business footprint had improved, but while “these milestones are important markers of business achievement, what’s equally if not more important, is our people at every level who make our plans and goals a reality through their dedication and talent”.
“Day in and day out, our employees are making a difference for our customers, for their colleagues, and for our business. Today we are proud to celebrate the most outstanding employees and their contributions in the past year to the Group’s reputation and success,” he added.
Najm, which means ‘star’ in Arabic, is the Group’s reward system that acknowledges employees all year round for their excellence, commitment and innovation in what they do.
The ‘Najm Chairman’s Award’, is the highest tier that employees can achieve through a selection process voted by department heads and senior management.
