Weber Shandwick is a great place to work

Weber Shandwick has been honoured by the Great Place to Work Institute UAE, by being ranked number seven among 15 shortlisted organisations for this year’s ‘Top Companies to Work for in the UAE’.

The Institute, part of a global research, training and consultancy firm, recognises the best workplaces in over 50 countries worldwide by evaluating each participating company through a Trust Index survey and Culture Audit. These evaluations address management credibility, employee engagement, job satisfaction, as well as pay and benefits programs, hiring, communication and development.

“We are delighted to have been selected as one of the Top 15 best companies to work for in the UAE for the second consecutive year,” says Andreas Keller, Managing Director, Dubai, Weber Shandwick MENA. “It’s always a great achievement when you can balance the management of a fast growing business while still providing your employees with a positive working environment. The management can set the blueprint for success, but it’s really down to the employees who create the environment and make the agency what it is today.”

Weber Shandwick named MEPRA’s Agency of the Year

Weber Shandwick MENA has been named Agency of the Year by the Middle East Public Relations Association (MEPRA) at the MEPRA Awards ceremony, which was held in Dubai last night. Weber Shandwick MENA also took home separate awards for ‘Best Corporate Reputation and Image’ for its work for DGCX (Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange) and ‘Best Business to Business Communications’ for its work with Standard and Poor’s. Honourees for each category are selected by an independent industry panel based on information gathered during the regional awards process.

“Winning MEPRA Agency of the Year is both a great achievement and a recognition of our commitment to creative excellence in a competitive marketplace with increasingly high best practice benchmarks,” says Ziad Hasbani, CEO, Weber Shandwick MENA. “I am delighted for my talented colleagues across the region who strive to achieve outstanding results for our clients day-in, day-out. However, we will not be resting on any laurels. We are driving forward a transformation of our business, which will ensure that we continue to stay ahead of the regional communication trends and place centre-stage the recognition that creativity and digital offerings are now key. We are confident that this award win will be the first of many.”
