Having been shortlisted in all three categories we entered, THE One proudly walked off with two prestigious accolades at the Retail Middle East Awards 2012 gala dinner, held on 5 December at The Ritz Carlton in Dubai International Financial Centre. While winning the Responsible Retailer of the Year award is the eleventh feather in our ‘CSR cap’ since 2006, we can’t be more proud of also being named the Most Admired Retailer of the Year – Home & Office Improvement. While accepting the awards, Thomas had the following to say: “It’s great to be acknowledged for being a meaningful retailer, offering value to our customers, as well as our employees and communities. Help us change the world together!"
November 2012: Our Khalidiya Theatre Restaurant team proved once again that they have a winning recipe for success when they scooped the prestigious title of What’s On Abu Dhabi Favourite Café for the fourth time in five years on 20 November. Long regarded as the 'people's choice' awards, patrons have the opportunity to vote for their favourite restaurant, while dining at participating eateries throughout Abu Dhabi. The top three restaurants in each category are then evaluated by industry experts from across the UAE, before the final winner is selected.
February 2012: For the second year running, THE One has been listed as one of the UAE’s top 10 employers, following the region’s second workplace survey conducted by The Great Place to Work® Institute – a global research and management consultancy that recognizes the best workplaces in over 45 countries. Based on the confidential feedback of our staff and an independent culture audit of our HR practices by the Institute, we are thrilled to have moved up to 5th position in 2012 while remaining the number one locally established company on the list. We are even more proud of outranking some multinationals this year, as well as being named one of the three Best Companies for Women in the UAE!
