Corporate Social Responsibility
There’s more to business than business. As a member of Qatar’s community, we strive to contribute to Qatar National Vision 2030. Investing in human development, sustainability initiatives, and employee training is an integral part of who we are.
We were recognised at the 2015 Facilities Management Middle East Awards, winning the prestigious Education and Development Initiative of the Year award. And we’ve spoken at regional conferences to spread the word about our innovative approach.
Graduate Training Program
Because Facilities Management is new to the country, Mosanada has taken ambitious steps to educate Qatari citizens in the field. By training Qatari nationals in FM, Mosanada’s legacy has been to establish a culture of best practice among the country’s future FM professionals. We have trained over 35 Qatari nationals to bring FM best practice to the country’s government and private sector for years to come. Going forward, we plan to expand these programs further.
Too often, organizations consider sustainability a buzzword. But we don’t see it that way. There’s a reason why we have a dedicated, in-house sustainability team. It’s why we create bespoke, smart district cooling plans for our clients’ facilities. And why we made the switch from disposable plastic water containers to reusable bottles on our biggest site, and why we have made it a priority to install solar energy solutions in our newest projects.
The reason? We know that sustainability not only saves the environment, but also saves money for our clients. Mosanada is bringing sustainability back, and exceeding our clients’ core business objectives in the process.
Safety is at the heart of Mosanada’s training, policies and procedures. It is our number one priority, day in and day out. That’s why we’ve instituted SAFE365, a program that integrates safety best practice into our daily work day. Safety is non-negotiable for us.
SAFE365 is a suite of policies, procedures and rules that ensure:
- Employees are encouraged to report conditions and practices that are potentially unsafe.
- Employees and sub-contractors actively participate in regular behavioural safety training.
- Contractors adhere to rigorous requirements for safety, underscored by mandatory inspections and audits to verify compliance.
- We continue to earn our ISO 18001 certification (and re-certification) for a safe and healthy working environment.
BIFM Training Program
We are the region’s first FM provider to be accredited as a training 'Recognised Centre' by the British Institute of Facilities Management. This is consistent with our mission for learning and career development, which aims to promote FM excellence through employee development of the highest quality. Our people, customers and, business benefit as a result.
