We have a robust health and safety system in place to ensure the well being of our people, with initiatives like Driver Classroom Training, Behind the Wheel Training, Risk Assessment Training and training courses to certify mental health counselors to create a conducive and supporting work environment.
Being environmentally conscious, STS has taken numerous measures to reduce carbon footprint, e-waste recycling, testing of bio fuels. One of the main areas of focus has been our volunteering efforts to support our community partners such as Smart Life Foundation and Emirates Environment group.
We would like to thank the Dubai Chamber for creating a framework for enhancing our CSR performance and evaluating and our CSR journey. The recent addition of new categories such as Workplace, Marketplace, Community and Environment categories under the Dubai Chamber CSR Label framework is encouraging to companies of the region, to improve CSR practices and maximise social impact.
This honour has allowed us to create a road map for the future and where we will be aiming to focus our efforts on strengthening employee welfare policies and practices and integrating people of determination into our workforce.
