Winners speak

Afra Harib Juma Al Nuaimi, an employee of Dubai Police Academy’s Specialised Training Section, was one of the winners of the Young Employee Award. The 27-year-old is a member of the first female SWAT team of Dubai Police which bagged the 10th position among teams from 55 countries. Among her contributions were the introduction of CrossFit sport and tech-assisted, smart training for the use of weapons.

“I have also participated in Gov Games and we got the second place. I have won many other competitions and taken part in many voluntary service activities. You don’t get an award because you did your job. You get it when you do something extra. I am very happy to get this award and I thank Dubai Police Academy for its constant support and encouragement, especially to the women employees,” said Afra.

For Brigadier (Retired) Dr Thuraya Al Hashmi, the Leadership Award, is a recognition for her 25 years of service at Abu Dhabi Police. “I have just retired as a brigadier. I served as director of Medical Services in my last role. I consider this award as a parting gift and a recognition for my service for 25 years,” she said.

AWR Mobility Services won the award for “Organisational Culture” with its “I Can Wow” initiative. Sanaa Ouahmane, the CEO, said the company put in years of hard work to implement the initiative that ensures and measures the happiness and well-being of employees.

She added: “To sustain the profitability of the company, it is not just enough to satisfy the customers. We need to wow the clients. If the employee needs to wow the clients, the company has to take care of the wellbeing of the employee. Employee engagement is not enough. So, we came up with the “I Can Wow” initiative that takes the voices of the employees to implement things that make them happy, well and make them wow the clients. We thank Dubai Quality Group for this award that recognises that the secret of the success of any organisation is its employees.”

Sinimol Noushad, founding director and owner of Dezire Project Consultant, who won the Emirates Business Woman Award, said: “I am truly humbled and grateful for the recognition. This award not only celebrates my achievements but also reflects the UAE’s commitment to empowering women in business. DQG’s efforts to identify and publicise UAE women’s achievements and their contributions to the economy and welfare of the UAE community are commendable. I am proud to be part of a nation that supports and encourages women to thrive in the business world. This honour inspires me to continue contributing to the advancement of women in entrepreneurship and beyond. I am deeply appreciative of the UAE’s unwavering dedication to women’s empowerment.”
