In November 2017, Frazer Jones Middle East proudly sponsored and attended the HR Summit and Expo held at the World Trade Centre in Dubai. As part of the HR Summit and for the 4th year running Frazer Jones sponsored The Middle East HR Excellence Awards 2017.
The Middle East HR Excellence Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals, departments, teams or an organisation that have contributed to the growth and development of the Middle East HR Industry.
The awards showcase the best HR talent in the Middle East and honour HR professionals in government and the private sector for their outstanding contributions in creating a high performing workforce for the future. It was great to meet many familiar faces of the HR fraternity across the Middle East at the HR Excellence Awards and as the industry grows, so does the need to reward industry leaders and innovators in a variety of industry categories.
Huge congratulations go to all of the winners on the night, those who won the Mark of Excellence Awards and those who were shortlisted as part of the nomination criteria.
