The 11th of February 2012 saw the dawn of the first official ranking for SME’s in the Middle East. Launched by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for SME Development (Dubai SME), the Dubai SME 100 seeks to identify Dubai’s top SME’s that are role models the Emirate can be proud of. After winning the SME Business Star of the Year award in 2010 and the SME Advisor Best Consultant Award in 2011, Ethos Consultancy was picked from over 72,000 SMEs to be among the top 100. Coming in at 25 in the overall rankings, Ethos Consultancy was ranked No. 1 in Human Capital Development. This proves to be a testament to the high levels of innovation, quality customer service solutions and people development initiatives within the organisation.
His Excellency Sami Al Qamzi, Director General of DED, said, “The Government of Dubai has launched various initiatives to promote entrepreneurship and SME development under its SME 5-year plan. This commitment to promote entrepreneurship and SMEs is in the DNA of Dubai, supported and led by our socio-economic stability, openness and visionary leadership. The Dubai SME 100 initiative will serve to inspire our emerging SMEs. It will encourage them to think outside accepted parameters, push their creativity and thus achieve their goals.”
“The SME 100 helps to sustain growth within the region. It serves as a tool to inspire SME’s to invest in innovation and people and identifies gaps for improvements and attracts attention of investors which adds real value. Ethos Consultancy is honored to be placed amongst such a prestigious list of companies and to help in driving the economy in the region.” says Robert Keay, Managing Director at Ethos Consultancy.
