The Chairman of the Al Habtoor Group, Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, recognized top talent at the Al Habtoor Groups annual Employee Excellence Awards. The event took place at the Habtoor Beach Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection on Monday 14 March, 2016.
The Chairman personally congratulated each of the winners at an award ceremony, which was also attended by Sultan Al Habtoor, President, Al Habtoor Motors; Mohammed Al Habtoor, Vice- Chairman and CEO, Al Habtoor Group and senior management across the Group.

The Chairman presented a total of 24 awards to commend the high performers across the Group. Each of the winners were hand delivered an engraved trophy, a certificate and a monetary prize to acknowledge their achievements.
Al Habtoor said, “I believe it is important to reward and recognise staff that consistently outperform. These are people who are hardworking, motivated and disciplined; attributes which lead to success. I am very proud of them.”
He added, “I always say that our staff are our biggest assets. This is what makes a company succeed. We are doing exceptionally well throughout all our units, and staff should be recognised for their hard work and commitment.”
Al Habtoor said, “As a Group we have grown significantly, especially in the past 12 months. In our hospitality division we now have seven hotels abroad, and seven in Dubai – including those under construction. Our real estate division is expanding with debut of The Residence Collection at Al Habtoor City, a new landmark in Dubai. Plus, we are in the process of developing luxury villas at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club – an upmarket equestrian haven in DubaiLand.”
“Al Habtoor Motors is number one in the world across most of its brands, and we now have a presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with Mitsubishi Fuso. In addition, we recently opened the world’s first Bentley Café and Boutique, and soon we will open the world’s first iconic Bentley Showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road,” he added.
“Our schools, Emirates International School, Jumeirah and Meadows each year improve on the last. Many of our students are graduating to some of the world’s top universities. This is a great achievement. We are preparing our young people to go out into the world armed with the right skillsets to succeed,” the Chairman said.
