SCCI begins review for business awards
Sharjah, March 30, 2009
The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) organised a workshop for its 2008 economic excellence awards assessment committee to understand the criteria for evaluation that will be conducted to assess the award nominees.
The general secretariat of the annual Sharjah economic excellence award announced recently that it will apply internationally recognized best practices and standards in evaluating the performance of Sharjah-based businesses.
This is pursuant to SCCI’s goal of encouraging establishments to enhance performance and practices by adopting global business standards and concepts.
Specific tasks, subcommittee work schedules, field visits and an evaluation result deadline by the end of May were also announced by the general secretariat during the workshop.
Essa Salem, management trainer and consultant, gave a detailed presentation on evaluation procedures and methodology as well as the complete assessment agenda.
“The main objective of the workshop was to educate the assessment committee on the tools, standards and technical details that will help ensure the best assessment of nominees,” said Nada Al Hajri, Sharjah economic excellence award general coordinator, SCCI.
“This will particularly be helpful for members who have joined the committee for the first time after accepting their duties in accordance with the standards and conditions of the general secretariat,” he added.
“The assessment committee will perform documentation and field evaluation for two months, after which they will announce the results and the winners of the award’s nine categories.
“These will be done by early June during the closing ceremony of the seventh edition of the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award,” added Al Hajri. – TradeArabia News Service
