The region’s leading job site receives the Gulf Capital Business of the Year Award and the People & Culture of the Year Award
Bayt.com, the Middle East’s number one jobsite, won two awards including the Gulf Capital Business of the Year Award and the People & Culture of the Year Award at the prestigious Gulf Capital SMEInfo Awards 2012, held last night at the Mehteran Theatre, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
The online portal, renowned as a destination of choice for tens of thousands of employers and millions of job seekers in the Middle East and beyond, came out on top after being selected by a panel of industry-leading judges.
“We are very proud to have received this prestigious recognition, which is a testament to the steps that we have taken this year to further enhance our position as a leading online job portal,” said Lama Ataya, CMO, Bayt.com. “Since the inception of Bayt.com, we have striven to create an online platform that will revolutionise recruitment in the Middle East, by providing cutting-edge tools and collating essential knowledge on the regional atmosphere for job seekers and employers alike.”
2012 has been a big year for Bayt.com. Coinciding with the 12th anniversary (and 9-millionth member), Bayt.com underwent a complete revamp, changing the look, feel, and functionality of the site to better serve the employer and job-seeking community in the region and better facilitate regional networking and employment. The revamp is in line with Bayt.com's mission at Bayt.com to empower people with the tools and knowledge to build their careers and lifestyles of choice.
Designed to recognise success, growth and innovation in business, the Gulf Capital Business of the Year award identifies strong leadership. “We are proud of being chosen as the Gulf Capital Business of the Year,” said Ataya about winning the most prestigious award at the SMEInfo Awards. “Our team continues to work hard to constantly improve and expand our offerings with a passion fuelled by our mission to make a difference. This year, we continued to explore how to bring to our professionals the newest and hottest technological trends, and how our community can benefit from the very latest in global advancements. Our goal is to ensure that Bayt.com powers a career ecosystem that is based on science and knowledge, topped off with personal experience and instinct. With over 9 million members currently registered, we are excited that this year has been one of us excitedly and passionately innovating, improving, and reforming the recruitment industry in the Middle East so that we can deliver on our commitment to enabling, facilitating and empowering jobs for all; at every career level and profile and demographic, both pan-regionally and pan-industrially and in the most effective way possible.”
Bayt.com also took home the People & Culture of the Year award, which celebrates outstanding performance in the field of corporate culture. Winning awards for corporate culture is not new to the job site; Bayt.com was awarded the GPTW ‘Top Ten Places to Work in the UAE’ award for two consecutive years. “The fact that we help people every day makes every single second of it wonderful and worthwhile for our team of Baytheads” added Ataya. “Our team’s satisfaction at Bayt.com really starts with the firm knowledge that we are contributing to something important that is bigger than us. Our mission of empowering people to lead better lives via enhancing their career prospects and access to job opportunities provides that opportunity. Moreover, our common, firm-wide values of Striving to be the best, Empowering others to lead better lives, and Creating Value by doing more with less help us in hiring and retaining top staff and translate into great philosophy, strategy, and tactics for optimizing employee loyalty, satisfaction and engagement.”
