“Tamimi Markets” is officially a Great Place to Work as recognized by the global authority on workplace culture. Great Place to Work internationally performs annual audits of leading employers. To be listed as one of the Best Workplaces, an organization first must be measured on how effectively it maximizes its human potential through effective leaders, meaningful values, and a deep foundation of trust with all employees. Over 70% of employees must participate and anonymously respond to a probing survey that statistically calculates the employers score versus international benchmarks. It has been proven that top scoring companies tend to outperform their competitors and such workplaces benefit from improved innovation and financial growth – as well as being great places to work.
