Dubai, UAE, 22 March 2022 – The Dubai Integrated Economic Zones Authority (DIEZ) announced its
participation as sponsor to the Taqdeer Award 2022 which aims to recognize excellence
in work relations and is held under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the
Executive Council.

The Taqdeer Award is the world’s first award-giving
body based on the point system for employee welfare, which categorizes
companies based on their employment practices. It is one of the awards adopted
by the Government of Dubai aimed at enhancing Dubai’s position as one of the
best cities in the world in terms of caring for workers, preserving their
rights and building the best relationships between them and their companies.

DIEZ, through its three freezones: Dubai Airport Freezone;
Dubai Silicon Oasis; and Dubai CommerCity, will encourage its companies to
participate in the award and implement the best practices in managing labour
relations. DIEZ hosts over 5,000 companies, including leading companies that
operate in over 20 important economic sectors. It is home to more than 30,000
employees from around the world.

His
Excellency Dr. Mohammed Al Zarooni, Executive Chairman of DIEZ, highlighted
that the Taqdeer Award plays an important role in honoring excellence in the way
organizations establish their relations with their employees, in line with the
directives of H.H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown
Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.

He
said: “Dubai is considered a leading economic hub and one of the world’s best
cities to live and work. The Taqdeer Award serves as a key initiative that
promote strategic partnerships between DIEZ and other government entities, which
contributes to strengthening Dubai’s status as the most labor-friendly city in
the world. In addition, these efforts help promote excellence among employees
and encourage them to increase productivity within a work environment under the
UAE laws and legislations. These laws aim to enhance the livelihood of labors,
protect their human and work rights, and support companies in achieving ideal results.”

His
Excellency added: “DIEZ is honored to be part of this initiative which highlights
the commitment of our wise leadership to honor best practices in labor relations,
as well as recognize the efforts of companies that create and maintain the highest
standards in their work conditions. This initiative is in line with the
respective free zones’ ongoing efforts to encourage companies adopt the best
practices in employee relations and follow leading international standards. It
would further drive companies to create the best work environment, in line with
the directives of H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President,
Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to promote Dubai as a leading global
hub for various sectors.”

H.E.
Major General Obaid Muhair bin Surour, Deputy Director General of General
Directorate of Residency and Immigrants Affairs (GDRFA) and Chairman of Taqdeer
Award and the Permanent Committee of Labour Affairs (PCLA) in Dubai, said: “Our
strategic agreement with DIEZ will help us pave the way to promote better labor
relations to more than 5,000 companies working under DIEZ, which covers more
than 30,000 employees from across the world. This gives the award a major boost
to spread the culture of labor excellence considering its expansive reach as an
international business community.”

His
Excellency added: “We are delighted to sign this agreement as we share the values
and ambitions to promote Dubai as the best city to live and work. The agreement
further encourages these companies to participate in the award and benefit from
the standards of becoming part of the most excellent companies and employees.”
