Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority named UAE’s one of the best work places

 Wednesday, April 20, 2022 


On the Best Workplaces List of 2022 – Small & Medium Organisations, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority has added to its credentials as an employer of choice with a top ten ranking. Awarded by the Great Place to Work, the global authority that identifies high-trust, a high-performing workplace culture, RAKTDA is the highest placed government entity in the category at number six.

The Authority has also been named one of the Best Workplaces for Women and a Great Place to Work in 2021. In Ras Al Khaimah, it’s the first and only organisation to be awarded this certification. Also, it was recognised as the ‘Government Entity with the Happiest Work Environment’ in the Emirate and ‘Happiest Employees in Ras Al Khaimah’ by the Sheikh Saqr Program for Government Excellence.

To quote Raki Phillips, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, “This amazing recognition for our tourism board didn’t happen overnight or come following a one-off initiative. It was a sustained approach that began two years ago and touched almost every part of our employees’ lives in very meaningful ways. The pandemic took a huge toll not only on the industry but on everyone working in tourism and hospitality, and I believe our dedication to ensuring employee well-being, not only for our own colleagues but across the sector as a whole, has resulted in our successful recovery as a destination.”

As part of its continuing employee driven initiations to build up a work environment that gives employee health and happiness prime importance at its operations. Recently, the Authority has declared a platform of campaigns targeted at enhancing connectivity, community life and facilities for the employees related to tourism in the Emirate.
Industry stakeholders and hospitality partners working closely with government entities, the Authority has developed a roadmap for the Emirate to perk up its magnetism for people to work, live and be immersed into a larger community.
