Mashreq Bank honours CEO with ‘wellness leader’ award

DUBAI, December 17, 2017

Mashreq Bank, a leading privately owned bank in the UAE, recently honoured its CEO Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair with the ‘Corporate Wellness Leader of the Year’ award at the Daman Corporate Health Awards.

Described by many of his employees and peers in business circles as a man who ‘walks the talk’, Al Ghurair’s commitment to personal wellbeing and achievements is inspirational – he is the winner of the UAE level CrossFit challenge for his age-category, ahead of competitors from even the military and police, said a statement.

He constantly pushes leaders (and other employees) from the organisations that he manages to get fitter, often challenging them to compete against him - he personally recognises those that achieve significant success, it said.

Al Ghurair’s hands-on leadership of Mashreq’s ‘Sahtak’ programme has ensured its success in ensuring a high-level of employee engagement as well as improving staff performance and productivity, it added.

A firm believer in the value of corporate wellness programmes, he continues to encourage further investments in initiatives that will continue to transform Mashreq’s workplace culture for increased staff wellbeing and organisational competitiveness.

Other corporate wellness champions recognised at this year’s edition of the Daman Corporate Health Awards include Dubai Airports (Corporate Wellness Team of the Year and CSR Employee Engagement of the Year); Expo 2020 Dubai (Daman Award for Corporate Health & Wellness-Organisation); Schneider Electric (Daman Award for Biggest Impact and Workplace of the Year); Clare Patterson, Haddins Fitness (Corporate Wellness Professional of the Year); Gulftainer (Daman Award for Corporate Health and Wellness Initiative); Khidmah (Health & Safety Initiative of the Year); Mashreq (Communications Campaign of the Year); and Eternity (Corporate Wellness Partner of the Year), it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
