Imdaad is deeply committed to equal opportunities for its people. We have a multi-cultural workforce of 6000+ employees across 37 nationalities and we place a lot of emphasis on creating a common culture of respect, understanding and opportunities for growth.
We encourage mobility in a variety of ways, including our much vaunted Want-A-Change program, which is an internal program that allows our labour force to apply for cross functional jobs and to receive extensive training. This allows our motivated and ambitious employees to upskill and have real career paths.
Moreover, we make sure that we don’t slack in terms of diversity by targeting a 10% increase in non-dominant nationalities, which we track quarterly.
With such a large and vibrant workforce, having a structured Human Capital policy is vital and helps to protect our unique culture. We do this through our Code of Ethics, “Amana”, which defines and governs the standards of business conduct expected from Imdaad employees.
Finally, our 5 star labour accommodation, named “Manzeli” which means “Home”, is purpose built to ensure employee safety and comfort. This dedicated facility not only helps relieve workers from industrial fatigue, but also improves quality and enjoyment of life, in line with our principles and beliefs.
The 120,000 sq.mt space has been developed in four phases with ample rooms and external spaces, currently housing approximately 3000 employees.
All buildings are provisioned with large kitchen and dining facilities for employees to cook and eat; inbuilt WIFI facilities and indoor & outdoor recreation facilities.
Employees are transported to and from the accommodation buildings in comfortable air-conditioned buses, some of which have inbuilt televisions, offering employees every chance to relax and rest during their commute.
Employee feedback in relation to housing and transport is solicited every year through a Employee Satisfaction Survey so that we can make improvements based on relevant feedback.
Upkeep of the accommodation facility is ensured by having dedicated accommodation supervisors and camp inspectors who stay within the premises to promote employee welfare.
We were one of only 5 out of 425 applicants to receive a 5 Star Taqdeer. We were also the only FM company to receive this prestigious award, recognising our commitment to our workforce. The Taqdeer award is a true testament to our best in class labor practices and in line with our core value of ‘People’.
