Landmark Group, the Dubai-based retail and hospitality company, has unveiled a "Happiness Movement" impacting over 40,000 employees across all GCC countries, aiming to enhance work-life balance.

The company said the Landmark Happiness Movement aims to reinforce values such as passion, speed and simplicity, innovation, ownership and entrepreneurship.

Ohoud Al Roumi, Minister of State for Happiness said: “I congratulate the Landmark Group on the launch of the Happiness Movement initiative, which aims to create a happy and positive working environment.

"I am confident that this initiative will have a positive impact not only on Landmark employees but also on the UAE community as a whole. I encourage all private sector companies across the country to follow their example so we all contribute, in our own way, to making the UAE a happier and more positive place.”

Nisha Jagtiani, executive director and chief happiness officer said: “Landmark Group has always been a great place to work in. We have grown because we have been able to nurture talent and recognise potential. Through the Landmark Happiness Movement, we aim to go one step further.”

The Happiness Movement has been rolled out across the group’s retail outlets, warehouses and offices, simultaneously engaging all 40,000 employees.

The company has identified ambassadors across its business to drive the initiative, including Workplace by Facebook, a common platform to voice their opinions, engage with their leaders and colleagues.
