Bayt.com a Great Place to Work
Tuesday the 5th of February 2013 was a big day for Bayt.com: it was recognized (for the third year in a row) as one of the “Top Companies to Work for in the UAE” by Great Place to Work® Institute. The list is a ranking of the UAE’s best employers based on the confidential feedback of employees (called the “Trust Index survey”) and an audit of management practices (or the “Culture Audit”). Bayt.com had previously made it among the top 10 companies to work in the UAE in 2011 and 2012.
For Bayt.com, harmony starts at home!
Bayt.com embraces a true employee-centric culture. It promotes a culture of creativity and ingenuity, and provides its employees with the freedom of expression and growth – both personally and professionally. The Bayt.com culture is one of innovation and recognition; high performance is recognized and top performers are rewarded.
The company also recognizes the importance of open communication; everything in the organization – from the open plan office settings to the fully equipped kitchen to the intranet, the internal blog and the monthly performance appraisals – is geared towards encouraging and promoting open channels of communication. Bayt.com employees even have access to internal sites to pitch their business ideas and share experiences (how cool is that?).
A company that puts people first
It comes as no surprise that Bayt.com receives the top places to work award, for it is truly a people’s business. Bayt.com’s mission has always been to improve people’s lives, and what better way to do that than ensure its very own team is receiving ongoing training and support and regular team-building activities, and working in an environment where teamwork and creativity can flourish and ideas can be shared freely!
Most importantly, Bayt.com’s management and employees share a joint vision that aims at empowering people in the region, and around the world, to lead better lives. This is what truly makes Bayt.com a great place to work, because the best companies around the world are places where employees are truly excited about coming in every day.
Top companies to work for are ones who have successfully built trust-based cultures, developed strong relationships with employees, and have put in place continuous improvement programs to develop their workplace cultures. We are very glad to be one of them.
This achievement not only puts us at the forefront of places to work, but also benefits both our inside and outside stakeholders.
