Seema Al Mansouri
A Fujairah-based interior firm became the first company in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries to win the award of ‘Great Place To Work’ with a 98% satisfaction score.
In this regard a ceremony was held in Fujairah which was attended by officials from the global authority on high trust workplace culture and a certificate handed over in the presence of employees of Eva Interiors.
The firm was established in 2009 in Fujairah by Seema Al Mansouri who was born and raised in the United Arab Emirates. She graduated from the American University of Sharjah with a Bachelor of Architecture. Upon graduation, she worked for numerous international companies on large-scale projects in both architecture and interior design. Currently, her firm has three offices in Fujairah, Dubai and London with over 100 staff including creative designers.
Talking to Gulf Today, Al Mansouri, CEO and founder Eva Interiors, said that “we started on a small scale and grew gradually. The journey was not easy especially last year with the pandemic. It was difficult for everyone. Our employees were working hard to carry our high-end design projects from the Royal Family of Fujairah to other dignitaries from other emirates,” she said.
Today the firm has expanded its operations to cover all emirates, and is considered one of the leading operations in the UAE with global recognition.
Al Mansouri is regionally recognised as an architecture and interiors expert, with a deep-rooted understanding of the UAE culture and experience in contemporary aesthetics. She is often hosted in leading Arab and regional TV shows and her works are published in numerous publications.
The certificate of accreditation awarded for the best work environment for 2021, granted by the American organisation “Great Place to Work”, was based on the questionnaire of the confidence index that was presented to employees to measure their experience in the company’s work environment.
Al Mansouri expressed her happiness and said that “the recent award is a great achievement for our whole employees who worked hard and showed their satisfaction in working while sharing their feelings with the survey team who granted us 98 per cent scores based on the satisfaction of our employees in the environment which they liked throughout the years.”
