Zayed University has been named as one of the top ten places to work in the UAE. Complied by The Great Place to Work Institute and Gulf Business magazine, the region's first ever workplace survey also ranks the university as the only government organization to reach the top ten.
"It’s not just about policies and procedures," says Dan Johnson, Zayed University's Provost, "Our mission to become the leading university in the region is something which is innately understood – and that flows from the vision of Sheikh Nahayan. We feel like we have a higher purpose which improves employee motivation."
Dr Johnson also explained that the university places emphasis on respect and diversity as workplace values, which is reflected in the organization’s retention rates, international employees and high female staff count.
