Glander International Bunkering Certified as a Great Place to Work® with High Employee Satisfaction Scores in UAE

January 23, 2020

Glander International Bunkering, a leading marine fuel and lubricant trading firm, has been selected as one of the UAE’s best workplaces after an independent analysis was conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute United Arab Emirates.

As the first bunker trading company to be awarded this accolade when the firm was certified last year, Glander International Bunkering can maintain its position as a top workplace in the UAE in 2020.

This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.

Morten Langthjem, Managing Director of Glander International Bunkering in Dubai, said “It is an honor to be certified once again by a global expert on workplaces and employee satisfaction. But we were also certified through the people who know our company best – our employees. The results indicate that our people truly feel that the company is committed to their wellbeing and development.”

Established in 2006, the Dubai office has quickly grown from an independent office of three employees into the headquarters of a multinational bunker trading firm with 8 locations around the world. This success stems from a vision that prioritizes employee satisfaction, fairness and respect.

Langthjem says “As an employer, we think it is important to invest in our employees and empower them by creating a culture of career growth and positivity. We offer competitive benefits and recognition, access to development programs and tools, a work life balance that integrates the family and helps the community. This recognition only substantiates the company’s efforts in creating a workplace that employees want to go to every day.”
