Dubai, UAE, 07 April 2020 – Glander International Bunkering was officially ranked as the 15th best workplace in the UAE, by leading global workplace culture authority Great Place to Work® Middle East. This year, Great Place to Work® recognized 40 private and 5 public organizations in the UAE.

The announcement, which is ordinarily made in an awards ceremony, occurred during a live streaming event due to the Covid-19 crisis.

Managing Director of Glander International Bunkering, Morten Langthjem said, “It is times like these that test a company’s values and responsiveness. But we are determined to offer our employees a great place to work and grow, even as they work from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Today, we not only celebrate our ranking, but we celebrate our unity even in our distance.”

Glander International Bunkering was the first bunker trading firm in the Middle East to be certified by Great Place to Work in 2019. The certification is based on the confidential feedback of employees and an audit of management policies and practices.
