Great place to work

Dual certification validates Global Food industries and International Beverage Filling Industries’ status as employer and partner of choice to become the first F&B companies to be certified as a Great Place to Work® in Sharjah

Sharjah, UAE: UAE-based value-added food and beverage manufacturing firms Global Food Industries (GFI) and International Beverage and Filling Industries (IBFI) continue to set industry benchmarks as both companies were awarded a ‘Great Place to Work®’ certificate by the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.

GFI and IBFI’s Great Place to Work® certifications were awarded following the conclusion of the Great Place to Work® Certification Survey, wherein both companies exceeded benchmarks to qualify for the Certification, Placement & Rating in Great Place to Work® Listed Organizations. It also gives both GFI and IBFI the distinction of being the first F&B companies in Sharjah, UAE to be issued a Great Place to Work® certification.

“GFI and IBFI’s certifications were based on direct feedback from employees and after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute in the UAE,” said Hasan Rasheed, Head of Human Resources & Administration at GFI and IBFI.  “As part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience, we were extremely pleased by the response from our employees towards the company’s efforts at strengthening our workplace culture. This includes our consistent implementation of Learning & Development programs, as well as in providing for the safest working environment and ensuring business continuity even in the midst of the difficult and challenging COVID-19 pandemic.

“Such survey results and GPTW certifications have now validated the key reasons for our success in attracting and hiring the best talent, as well as in retaining high potential staff,” Rasheed added. “This also serves as testament to our status as an employer and partner of choice. And, as we move ahead towards achieving a clear 2025 strategy for business growth and expansion, we do so with great confidence on the sense of teamwork across various departments, on each and every individual’s commitment to excellence in the performance of their job and their sense of pride of being associated with Great Place to Work® brands such as GFI and IBFI.”
