Dulsco, the leading UAE human resources and environmental solutions provider, has received an award from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation for its employment of UAE nationals. The company - the official waste management partner for Expo 2020 Dubai - was given the honour in recognition of its significant contributions towards securing the UAE Government Accelerators’ objectives in Emiratisation.
In presenting the award, His Excellency Nasser bin Thani Juma Al Hamli, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, listed Dulsco as a ‘Best Employers’ in the retail sector for its outstanding efforts in hiring 3,390 UAE nationals. Organised by the ministry, the awarding ceremony was held at the Palazzo Versace Dubai Hotel, where David Stockton, Dulsco’s Managing director and CEO and Mahdi Mohammed, Dulsco’s COO of Business Support Services, accepted the honour on behalf of the company.
Dulsco’s award is the latest of many the company has received from the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, earning it a silver membership in the Tawteen Partners Club, the organisation that recognises private sector involvement in Emiratisation. The departments that Emiratis working at Dulsco have joined include customer services, government relations, marketing, human resources, QHSE management and commercial management.
Dulsco’s business and operational strategies place a priority on investment in and training of local talents and setting programmes to ensure their career development. The company says that it implements an innovative approach in attracting and retaining Emirati employees – including offerings which specifically cater to Emirati women – and provides them with opportunities for continuous learning, professional development and self-improvement.
Abdul Aziz Mohammed Khan, Dulsco’s Chairman said: “Dulsco places a priority on supporting the UAE accomplish its Sustainable Development Goals, especially empowering national talents and providing employment opportunities suited to their qualifications. We are proud to be part of the Government Accelerators programme and reaffirm our readiness to continue coordinating with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, as well as all other government entities, to outline future strategies that seek to train and empower UAE nationals.”
“We are delighted to receive this award, as it reflects our commitment to providing a work environment that attracts Emirati talent. It also reflects the UAE’s diverse community, which embodies the values of tolerance and equal opportunity, as well as honours achievers and innovators,” Khan explained.
Other accolades that Dulsco has won recently include three awards for environmental and sustainability solutions, which the company received at the third edition of the Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards held in February this year.
