Al-Salem Johnson Controls showcases rental solutions at Hajj expo

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and related government entities work to ensure the comfort of pilgrims by offering diversified services. These include air conditioning and cooling solutions, which are especially important now that the since recent Hajj and Umrah seasons and Ramadan have lately coincided with the summer season.
The Coordination Council of Local Hajj Operators recently organized an exhibition under the theme “Equipping Hajj with Integrated and Supportive Services.” A number of service providers from different sectors participated in the event. Al-Salem Johnson Controls (YORK), a leading multi-industrial company and provider of integrated solutions that incorporate HVAC equipment, fire and security systems, building management systems and controls, participated in the exhibition.
The company has successfully offered its services in the past years to huge outdoor projects that witness overcrowding, including at the Two Holy Mosques.
During the exhibition, Al-Salem Johnson Controls presented the company’s services and solutions to the participating companies, highlighting its rental solutions.
The company is expanding holistic rental services of the air conditioning units and electrical power generators as it believes that the rental services are the ideal solution for cooling the Two Holy Mosques and the pilgrims’ camps.
It is also ideal for peak pilgrimage seasons when extra air conditioning units are needed, as well as for periodic maintenance, emergencies and abrupt breakdowns.
With warehouses located across Saudi Arabia, it is easy for Al-Salem Johnson Controls to have an immediate response to HVAC requirements by supplying air conditioning units and electrical power generators.
The company’s specialized team provides immediate integrated solutions that include initial diagnosis of the situation, installation of equipment, operation and maintenance as well as the dismantling and removal of equipment after the rental period is completed, which may vary between long- and short-term rentals based on the requirements.
Al-Salem Johnson Controls has been successfully operating and maintaining the world’s second largest cooling plant for the Holy Mosque in Makkah, one of the world’s largest cooling stations for the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, the Zamzam station, the hospital in Mina and the Jamarat area.
The company has previously provided its rental solutions to the Mataf expansion project at the Holy Mosque, the expansion of the Jamarat area, the Saudi Project for Utilization of Hajj Meat, and the Mina tents project.

DHL KSA ‘best place to work’ in Saudi Arabia

DHL Saudi Arabia has been recognized as the “best place to work” in Saudi Arabia in 2018 by a survey undertaken by the American Institute “Best Places to Work.” The initiative conducts surveys that collect employee-provided information on companies in 60 countries around the world and then evaluates them on a country-by-country basis. 

What makes this achievement outstanding is that DHL was ranked first among other top companies that were awarded the “Best Places to Work” certification.

“This recognition is not just an award but a testament to employee satisfaction at DHL Saudi Arabia,” said Faysal El-Hajjami, country general manager. “We are very proud to be named as the ‘best place to work’ in Saudi Arabia, especially as it is based on the assessments of our own workforce in comparison with others in the Kingdom.”

El-Hajjami said the award is a reflection of the efforts put into DHL Arabia’s strategic plan to become the “employer of choice” in Saudi Arabia through the implementation of a well-structured motivation program designed to empower employees and engage their hearts and minds in providing extraordinary service to its customers at every step of the supply chain.

Participating companies agree to conduct the Employee Engagement and Satisfaction survey that asks 36 questions across eight areas, including leadership, compensation and benefits, corporate social responsibility, employee engagement, personal growth, HR practices and the workplace. The HR assessment presents 154 questions across six categories, including information about the company, HR practices, personal growth, engagement, well-being and leadership. 

The initiative provides companies an opportunity to learn more about the engagement and satisfaction of their employees while ultimately celebrating companies whose employees say they are engaged in their work and feel connected to their place of employment.

DHL is a leading global brand in the logistics industry. Its portfolio of services include national and international parcel delivery, e-commerce shipping and fulfillment solutions, international express, road, air and ocean transport, and industrial supply chain management. “With about 350,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, DHL connects people and businesses securely and reliably, enabling global trade flows,” a press statement said. 

The “Best Places To Work” program certifies and recognizes leading workplaces in many countries including leading programs in Africa, Europe, Middle East and Asia. The program focuses on eight workplace factors including workplace culture, opportunities for growth and overall employee satisfaction with the company’s people practices. An HR audit is also conducted to examine HR practices within the organization.
