It also offers special privileges, incentives and services to qualified private sector establishments according to their classification in the Club.

Ms. Maha Kanoo, General Manager, HR & Marketing – UAE & Oman, The Kanoo Group received the prestigious award which was presented by Ms. Farida Abdullah Al Ali, Assistant Undersecretary for National Human Resources Recruitment at The Kanoo Group's Head Office in Dubai.

"We are honoured to be one of the strategic partners of the Government in enhancing the UAE workforce participation in the private sectors," said Ms. Maha Kanoo.

The intellectual property (IP) event was co-hosted by INTERPOL and Dubai Police in partnership with the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC) and the Emirates IP Association (EIPA).

Mr. Fahad Kanoo, Acting CEO, The Kanoo Group-UAE & Oman said, "The annual conference provides us with a vital and unique platform that brings together law enforcement officials, security and industry experts to strengthen our international cooperation against IP crimes in the region and beyond."

Ms Maryam Al Busaidy, HR Manager, Employee Services and Emiratisation – UAE & Oman together with Mr. Ahmed Mohammad Alipoor, HR Manager, Public Relations – UAE who spearheaded the programme and also part of The Kanoo Group's local workforces, joined the awarding ceremony.

Ms. Farida Abdullah Al Ali also met with The Kanoo Group's local employees and exchanged dialogue with them about the importance of Emiratisation which is a priority for the UAE Government and a national responsibility for all, which is one of the driving forces of the UAE's economic development.

After determining each level of Emiratisation priority, the MOHRE sets out a specific ratio of Emirati nationals who should be working in a company.

Based on the ratio and depending on the total number of points, the MOHRE then classifies the company as Silver, Gold or Platinum.
