Emirates Honours Employees at 12th Annual Najm Awards
26 of the Emirates Group’s top employees received the organisation’s most prestigious recognition today at the Najm Chairman’s Awards.
The awards recognise employees whose work and actions are characterised by a strong work ethic, a spirit of innovation, extraordinary acts of bravery and selfless teamwork.
Najm, which means ‘star’ in Arabic, has been the Group’s employee recognition and reward programme since 2007.
The Najm programme has different award tiers which recognises employees all year round for their excellence, commitment and innovation, and going above and beyond their roles to make a difference.
This year, the Emirates Group recognised over 14,000 employee achievements through the programme.
The ‘Najm Chairman’s Award’ is the highest accolade at the Emirates Group, and nominated employees and teams undergo a rigorous process which is vetted and screened by department heads and senior management.
Since 2008, 73 Najm Chairman’s awards have been given out to employees across different departments at the Emirates Group.
