Imdaad to hire more staff to meet growth plans
Dubai, May 23, 2009
Imdaad, the UAE’s leading integrated facilities management (FM) company under Dubai World, has announced plans to recruit more staff in 2009 to match projected growth in its operations.
The decision will raise Imdaad’s staff count by 25 per cent by the end of 2009 compared to the number of staff in 2008. Imdaad sees this as a strategic necessity designed to meet the increasing demand for its services across an expanding geographical footprint.
“The decision to increase our manpower base is a forward-looking strategy,” said Jamal Abdulla Lootah, chief executive officer of Imdaad.
“Imdaad has set ambitious targets for expansion in the region and to cement our leading position in the facilities management sector. Augmenting our human resources will enable us to meet our contractual commitments and deliver services of the highest standards,” he added.
The recruitment plan is consistent with the steady expansion of Imdaad’s workforce over the past two years in line with its increasing operations. The company’s current manpower base shows an increase by 26 per cent compared to the number of employees in 2007.
Armed with several new high-profile FM contracts, Imdaad has already set it expansion plans rolling by adding to its service fleet, which presently has 129 vehicles, including tipper trucks, skip loaders, dump trucks, tipper trucks with cranes, double cabin pick-ups, sand sweeping machines, beach cleaners, buses, tankers and compactors.
New compactors and other vehicles have been ordered to strengthen waste collection and disposal services.
In line with Dubai’s commitment to sustainable development, Imdaad has stepped up efforts to deliver “green services” to ensure environment protection, and implement all safety and health parameters at its various projects. – TradeArabia News Service
