Great Place to Work

​Have you heard the news? Westford University College was named 29# on the UAE’s Best Workplaces list by Great Place to Work® – Middle East! This list recognizes UAE’s leaders in building high-trust, high-performance cultures that enhance business results, quality of work-life, and employee engagement. Yes, we are all about our world-changing culture, and creating an inclusive future for all – but as our Co-Founder & Executive Director Hanil Das says, “#WeAreWestford is more than a hashtag — it means something.” And, as the team behind #WeAreWestford – we could not agree more.

 

At Westford, we believe that our people are our greatest asset, and we work hard to make sure they have the support that they need to maintain their wellbeing and be successful both in and out of the workplace. This recognition is a testament to our effort to create a progressive and flexible environment where they have the access to the tools, developmental programs, and mentors they need to grow their careers.

This year’s list of Best Workplaces in UAE represents great diversity in terms of sector, industry, & size. Each has pioneered a unique path to success. Says Hanil, “There is one thing they all have in common – TRUST. Workplace trust is the foundation for quality jobs and performance excellence. Employees who trust their managers give their best work freely, and that extra effort goes directly to the company’s bottom line.”

It is worth mentioning that positive company culture starts from the top down. Westford aims to foster an atmosphere that is diverse, inclusive, and encourages collaboration and growth. We want our people to feel empowered in their roles and have the necessary tools to help them achieve both their professional and personal goals with flexibility. Westford employees have access to various learning programs to enhance their skillsets and they are rewarded for going above and beyond to deliver exceptional work.

 

How Westford does it?

All of this begs the question: how does Westford foster such a healthy corporate environment and keep its employees happy? We believe investing in our people is core to creating a sustainable company that embodies values of trust, growth mindset, humility, and balance. Westford guarantees employees an “open and agile” environment that encourages employees to explore ideas and challenge norms. Lastly, and perhaps most tied to Westford’s position on the UAE’s Best Workplaces list, is benefit everyone. The company promises to support its employees’ professional development, encourage and appreciate individuals’ contributions, and positively impact society with the company’s collective ability to “win together.”

All said, we have accomplished a great deal, but there is more to do. Westford University College is a great community, and the voice of the employee will continue to drive us forward. Today, we will celebrate being the number 29 Best UAE-based company to work for.
