General Secretariat Of 2010 Sharjah Economic Excellence Award Organises Workshops On Competition Mechanics

Entire Awards Process Enhanced For 8th Edition

The General Secretariat of the annual Sharjah Economic Excellence Award (SEEA) recently organised a series of workshops covering competition mechanics, at the headquarters of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI). The sessions were held in the presence of managers and representatives of SCCI member companies taking part in the Award.

The workshops discussed the proper preparation of the Award’s application forms, the pre-evaluation phase, methodology of evaluation, post-evaluation procedures, and the details of the technical report that is given to the winning companies during the award ceremony. They fulfilled the General Secretariat’s commitment to fully preparing the participants of the Award; motivating them to further enhance the quality of their services and products; improving their leadership and administration methods; and setting effective strategic plans.

“The past sessions generated a lot of interest and participation from those taking part in SEEA. This confirms growing confidence in and support for the competition, which will result in the adoption of administrative practices that foster corporate excellence. We thank the SEEA board of trustees chaired by Ahmed Mohammad Al Midfaa for supporting our goal of explaining the entire award process to all nominees so that they can adequately prepare for it,” said Nada Al Hajiri, SEEA General Coordinator, SCCI.

Al Hajiri noted that the workshops outlined the Award’s key criteria, including leadership, strategic planning, decision-making, customer and employee satisfaction, efficiency of human resources, and corporate social responsibility. She added that the entire awards process has been upgraded, from application up to nomination and selection of winners.

The Sharjah Economic Excellence Award aims to encourage the private sector to pursue the development and growth of its management, operations, products and services and reward enterprises for their efforts. It sets guidelines, standards and examples to emulate in order to positively change corporate culture and achieve excellence. SEEA was first launched in 1990 under the name ‘Best Exporters Award,’ and was originally intended to motivate exporters to develop unique mechanisms to increase their export rate.

The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry has always been committed to further developing the criteria of the award and expanding its levels of participation. The award’s name was changed to the ‘Elites Award’ in 1995 and was again renamed the ‘Sharjah Economic Excellence Award’ in 2001 under the directives of H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Bin Sultan Al Qassimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah. SEEA’s latest model meets all the requirements of comprehensive quality management. It takes into account the potential of Sharjah’s private businesses as well as the sustained growth and accelerated development of this vital sector of the national economy.
