Local retailers rank high as best workplaces for women


September 30, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Several local retailers rank high as best workplaces for women in the GCC, as revealed for the first time by Great Place to Work. Among the 2020 Best Workplaces for Women in GCC are THE One, Landmark Group and Chalhoub Group. Other retail brands featured on the list include Yum! Brands and Pizza Express.

“Our research shows that men have a better experience at work than women, hence, we are very proud to be launching for the first time in the region the top 40 Best Workplaces for Women in GCC, and in line with our 2020 strategy of recognising organisations across the region that are working hard to close the gender gap and sustain a high trust, high performing culture for ALL employees,” stated Ibrahim Mougharbel, managing director, Great Place To Work UAE.

As local retailers rank high as best workplaces for women, Tanzeel Rahman, managing director, Great Place To Work Saudi Arabia, added, “Women today face a unique set of challenges both in and out of the workplace ranging from pay, fairness, empowerment etc. The Best Workplaces on this list have created a greater sense of fairness, collaboration and professional development for female employees. These positive experiences empower them to bring their full potential to the workplace and the world.”

“Employees told us how they felt about 60 different aspects of their workplace culture, including credibility, respect, pride and camaraderie. Among these, measurements of fairness and equity revealed the biggest gaps between women’s’ and men’s’ workplace experience. Women, more often than men, experience management playing favourites and handing out promotions and work projects unfairly,” shared Mazen Harb, managing director, Great Place To Work Middle East.
