In a statement, Raysut Cement said that group CEO Joey Ghose won the ‘CEO of the Year’ honour at both the Oman Best Employer Awards 2020, held in October and GCC Best Employer Awards 2020 held in November.
RCC said the awards reinforced the company’s excellence across leadership, health and safety, technology, training and talent management. Both the awards were presented at virtual events held by the Employer Branding Institute, a global body which has been recognising exemplary branding, human resources and leadership every year, according to a press release.
The awards Raysut Cement picked up at the Oman Best Employer Brand Awards included recognitions for Promoting Health in the Workplace, Best Use of Technology for Training, and Training Provider of the Year award. At the GCC Best Employer Brand Awards 2020, RCC won Award for Talent Management and Leaders of Tomorrow Award.
Salim bin Ahmed al Ibrahim, acting deputy group CEO, who received the awards on behalf of RCC thanked His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik, Oman government and its supporting bodies, board of directors of RCC, executive management, and staff of RCC group in building the success story.
“We operate beyond Oman – in the UAE through our subsidiary Pioneer Cement Company in Yemen through associates and in East Africa through trading offices as well as new investments. We have also invested in Georgia and have recently acquired a terminal in Maldives too. We will be expanding further and will be present in different parts of the world supporting infrastructure development in various geographies with Omani clinker and cement,” Ibrahim said.
“Last year RCC acquired Sohar Cement Company and we believe that our success lies in our highly motivated, skilled, and trained employees who deliver the best quality we are known for,” he added.
