Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) adds to its accolades as an employer of choice with a TOP 10 ranking in the Middle East, by Great Place to Work, the global authority that recognizes high-trust, high-performing workplace cultures. As the highest placed government entity, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority was also ranked sixth in the Best Workplaces List in the UAE of 2022 â€“ Small & Medium Organisation and named one of the Best Workplaces for Millennials and Best Workplaces in Asia in 2022.
The tourism authority was recognized last year as one of the Best Workplaces for Women and a Great Place to Work in 2021, and remains today as the first and only organization in Ras Al Khaimah to be ranked amongst the top 10 regional companies in the Middle East. This builds on the progressive policies put in place by the Authority, such as its â€˜Lifestyle Benefitsâ€™ programme which ensures employees are provided for equally, regardless of age, gender, parental or marital status.
It was also one of the first government entities in the Emirate to introduce an Official Remote Working policy and extensive hardship assistance programme. Additionally, its robust Emiratization programme provides Emirati nationals with leadership training and development opportunities.Â Â
Raki Phillips, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: â€œOur employees and their wellbeing are at the core of what we do here at the Authority and we are honoured to be recognized for the second consecutive year by Great Place to Work.â€
