It is true that no matter what we do, we are a spirited organisation. The proof of this is in our Sports League. It started out in 2010 as just a way for employees to interact and have some fun. Today, it has grown into a fully organized part of our Employee Engagement Programme with individually structured committees, representing the different sports we are involved in.
Today, more than 1,400 employees participate in 17 different sports. These are chosen based on an employee survey, which ensures engagement across the entire organisation. The most popular of these sports are cricket, football, badminton and bowling. There are over 150 teams participating in each. Basketball and volleyball are eagerly contested too, while squash, swimming and tennis allow employees the opportunity improve their stamina and skills. Al Tayer Group holds the annual Sports League where all the teams compete in the different arenas. The event ends with an awards ceremony for all winners and runners up.
The Sports League also represents Al Tayer Group at the Dubai Corporate Games. In our very first entry in 2012, we finished 3rd place. In 2014, 2015 and in 2016 we stood atop the podium as the top company in Dubai.
