New Category

Al Owais officially announced the launch of a new category within the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award, which is once again a category that covers economic institutions across the GCC, under the name of “Sharjah Gulf Localization Award.” The Award Category is part of an initiative that seeks to honor and recognize the companies employing the highest number of citizens at the GCC level, which was organized in partnership with the Federation of Chambers of the GCC, and in light of the recommendations of the 5th GCC Human Resources and Labour Market Executive Conference, which was organized and hosted by Sharjah Chamber last October under the slogan “Gulf human capital, a promising wealth”


Al Owais stated that they hope that excellence will become an institutional culture, and that quality will become a daily practice for the UAE, Gulf and Arab private sectors to achieve the leadership and sustainable prosperity.


His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Salem Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, HE Abdullah Sultan Al Owais, and Nada Al Hajri, General Coordinator of the Awards, honored the partners, sponsors, the Award judges and the evaluation teams, which was followed by the distribution of shields, certificates of appreciation and awards to the winning establishments.

Encouragement and motivation


HE Khaled bin Butti Al Hajri, Director-General of SCCI, congratulated the winners of all categories of the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award. He also thanked the partners, sponsors, evaluation teams, Award Judges and all those who contributed to the success of this Award. He stressed the eagerness of the Chamber to continue spreading a culture of quality and excellence and to contribute to the development of the economic role of private sector institutions and the Gulf business communities.


HE Khaled bin Butti Al Hajri pointed out that the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award was keen on developing its evaluation process and improving its standards, which is based on the commitment of the Award to adhering to the highest standards of quality and excellence and its keenness to improve its performance and its role towards the private sector.

Nada Al Hajri, General Coordinator of the Sharjah Economic Excellence Award, stated that the development of the award is based on a strategy through which the Chamber aims to encourage economic establishments to strive for excellence and optimum performance. She stated that the winners deserved the merit and honor of winning these awards in recognition of their excellence and creativity and valuable efforts during 2017.

Al Hajri added that the 2017 edition witnessed the participation of more than 100 economic establishments. She stated that the Board of Trustees of the Award discussed a number of proposals aimed at developing the award, increasing the number of participants, enhancing its role in cultivating a competitive business environment and supporting and encouraging the business community in Sharjah and various Gulf countries.

The Sharjah Economic Excellence Award was launched in 2002 as one of Sharjah Chamber's initiatives to promote corporate governance, promote quality standards and work ethic, develop the responsibility of private sector enterprises towards society, encourage environmentally friendly practices, and enhance the role of economic institutions in promoting sustainable development.

The Award has witnessed continuous development which includes the implementation of the model set by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), and the adoption of comprehensive strategies to improve performance in accordance with the highest international quality standards.
