Omanexpo shortlisted for two Middle East Event Awards

Omanexpo has been shortlisted for two awards at the Middle East Event Awards after entering for the first time.

The organiser has been shortlisted for both ‘Best Employer of the Year’ and ‘Best Trade Show’ for Food & Hospitality Oman.

Over the last 12 months, Omanexpo has been working on revolutionising its company culture. Driven by senior management and its HR team, it has worked hard to revitalise the workplace and create an employee-centric environment which puts employees at the heart of the organisation. In addition, the company has recently launched its online webinar series supporting its stakeholder businesses through the Covid-19 pandemic.

General Manager at Omanexpo, Ashley Roberts, said: “The building blocks for success were already there from the positive attitudes and fantastic talent of our team. Our challenge was in creating an organisation that developed staff to the best of their abilities, gave employees a sense of direction and purpose and brought them onboard for the next evolution of Omanexpo.

“To do this, we focused our attention on building a more collaborative environment and creating a workplace and environment that stimulated our employees and motivated them on a daily basis and made them feel safe enough to share their thoughts and ideas and that their concerns were being listened to. Trust is a key component of a restored workplace which often is driven by transparency of business goals and compassionate and empathetic communication between all employees.”

The Middle East Event Awards will take place from 14-15 October 2020 at The Madinat, Jumeirah Dubai.
