Empower sends70 of its employees for Umrah

Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (EMPOWER), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, has arranged an Umrah trip to Mecca for 70 of its low-income employees. The move is part of the company’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility as well as towards improving employee job satisfaction, and its wider role in supporting the ‘Year of Giving’. This initiative includes employees, in two batches, who neither can afford to go for nor have performed Umrah before.

“It gives us great pleasure to be able to organise a spiritual trip for our staff. Supporting our staff for this holy trip is just a small effort to make a greater contribution to the society and support the ‘Year of Giving’. With Ramadan being close, this is a perfect opportunity to extend our support to our staff and the country in general,”said H.E. Ahmad Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.


Empower’s move to support its employees for Umrah is a part of its employee and community initiatives to enhance interaction, promote work-life balance and consolidate the values and principles of virtue through various community initiatives and programmes. This is the second consecutive year Empower facilitating Umrah trips in batches for its Employees.


“While the inspiring Umrah trip will boost the values of the staff, it will also bring them abundant happiness. At Empower we’ve been committed to support low-income groups disregarding their nationality, language and ethnic backgrounds as directed by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,” added H.E. Ahmad Bin Shafar.


Empower is involved in varied social initiatives to extend support to not just its staff, but also the country. The employees of Empower extended their gratitude to the company for sponsoring the trip.


Empower currently operates more than 1.250 Million RT, providing environmentally responsible district cooling services to large-scale real estate developments such as Jumeirah Group, Business Bay, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai International Financial Centre, Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Ibn Battuta Mall, Discovery Gardens, Dubai Healthcare City, Dubai World trade Centre Residences, Dubai Design District, among others.
