When talking about the work environment at his company, the DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani notes that diversity is an essential ingredient. He mentions that diversity means they have a wealth of varying ideas, views and perspectives that they can tap into while making critical business decision or during the development of strategic plans. Their diversity gives them range, which is an advantage in business. The company has 77 nationalities working for them from every continent.
Hussain Sajwani notes that his company and the success it had pre-dates to the vision of the founding fathers of the UAE, as they understood the value of creating a unified and strong nation which would serve as a gateway between the west and the east. He declares that their vision pushed him work hard in order to support the development of the UAE’s social and business infrastructure. The DAMAC owner goes on to say that entrepreneurship came naturally to him, and that he understood the importance of a home-grown business ever since he was young. In the early 2000s, as the UAE opened up its real estate market, he jumped on the opportunity and created his own company.
As he continues to talk about the environment at DAMAC, the Emirati billionaire reveals that every employee is able to contribute to DAMAC’s growth, performance and innovation. The company does not have a central team or a single department that is responsible for that. Each department within the company has different approaches when it comes to driving creativity within their team. Sajwani states that some departments have brain storming sessions outside the offices, while other departments incentivize their team in order to share creative ideas.
Seeing a development begin its journey as an idea and the materializing into a community or a home is the most enjoyable thing when ti comes to working at his company, declares Sajwani. While the process takes several years and it implies going through several hurdles and through hard work, the impact of seeing the idea take shape is what he loves most about working at DAMAC, declares the owner. According to albawaba.com, Sajwani hands over AED two million to dress one million needy children.
