United Development Company (UDC), master developer of The Pearl-Qatar and Gewan Islands, clinched two prestigious new awards at the 10th edition of Asia’s Best Employer Brand Awards. The awards celebrate excellence in human resources (HR) and recognise the achievements of organisations with outstanding management practices.

UDC was presented with the ‘Best Employer Brand Award’ and the ‘Best HR Strategy in Line with Business’ during a ceremony that took place at Pan Pacific, Singapore earlier this month.

Hosted by the World HRD Congress, in collaboration with the Employer Branding Institute, the awards ceremony brought together over 400 senior HR and development professionals from 12 countries across Asia.

The awards reflect UDC’s success in aligning its HR policies with its business strategies and in adopting effective management practices that contribute to the growth of the Company and its employees.

Commenting on this latest achievement, UDC President and CEO and Member of the Board, Ibrahim Jassim Al Othman, said the two new awards demonstrate their success not only as a leading real estate development company but also as an organisation committed to the growth of its employees through effective and sound management and HR practices.

Earlier this year, UDC was also recognised at the International Property Awards. UDC won the ‘Best Mixed-Use Development Award’ for The Pearl-Qatar and ‘Commercial High-Rise Development Award’ for UDC Tower at the 2019-2020 Arabian Property Awards.

The island was also chosen as the ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’ at the 2018-2019 Arabian Property Awards, while UDC was named the ‘Best Real Estate Development Company in Qatar’ in 2018 by the prestigious London-based International Finance Magazine.

UDC is a leading Qatari public shareholding company with a mission to identify and invest in long-term projects and contribute to Qatar’s growth and provide good shareholder value. UDC activities cover a multitude of vital investment sectors including real estate development, property management, infrastructure and utilities, maritime, and hospitality related businesses.
