United Development Company (UDC) has clinched two new awards at the 10th edition of Asia’s Best Employer Brand Awards, which celebrate excellence in HR and recognise the achievements of organisations with outstanding management practices.
UDC was presented with the ‘Best Employer Brand Award’ and the award for ‘Best HR Strategy in Line with Business’ during a ceremony held at the Pan Pacific, Singapore on August 15.
Al-Othman: Outstanding management practices
Hosted by the World HRD Congress, in collaboration with the Employer Branding Institute, the awards ceremony brought together over 400 senior HR and development professionals from 12 countries across Asia.
The awards reflect UDC’s success in aligning its HR policies with its business strategies and in adopting effective management practices that contribute to the growth of the company and its employees.
UDC president and CEO Ibrahim Jassim al-Othman, who is also member of the board, said: “The two awards demonstrate UDC’s success not only as a leading real estate development company but also as an organisation that is committed to the growth of its employees through effective and sound management and HR practices.”
