Al Naboodah Group Mission and Vision
The vision is our guiding principle – the ultimate statement of what we want to be as a company and where we are going. The mission is a statement about how we are going to achieve this vision in our day-to-day business activities.
THE STORY CONTINUES
2014 - Al Naboodah Group Enterprises
2015 – Al Naboodah’s Al Awir HQ Completed
One of the new company’s first steps was to formalise its approach to corporate governance and create a sustainability framework, supported by a sustainability committee comprising members of senior management. In 2016, the Group issued its first Sustainability Report, created according to GRI standards, with full transparency on the company’s sustainability efforts.
2017 – A Year of Major Milestones
Achieving its stated 2020 Vision of being an employer of choice in the UAE and beyond, the Al Naboodah Group becomes the first company to be awarded the UAE’s Happiest Working Environment by the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in 2017.
Capping a hugely successful year, the Group’s founders, the brothers Saeed Juma and Mohammed Juma Al Naboodah, were honoured with the UAE Pioneer Award, an initiative founded by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, in November 2017.
2018 – The Year of Zayed
Further building on its strong sustainability vision, in January 2018 the Group’s second annual Sustainability Report was issued, this time fully GRI-compliant, and outlining the significant progress the Group made in its sustainable development over the course of 2017.
In another remarkable achievement, the Group was awarded the UAE’s Happiest Working Environment for the second year running in 2018, decisively confirming its status as the employer of choice in the UAE.

THE BIRTH OF A NATION
This historic date marks the unification of the seven Emirates into one nation, and the United Arab Emirates was formed. The new nation joined the Arab League only days later, on the 6th December 1971. In 1972, the Federal National Council of the UAE was formed as a federal authority representing the people of the Emirates. That year, HE Saeed Juma Al Naboodah became one of the first 40 members elected to the council.
The 1970s would prove to be a busy decade for the Group as well, as it began to build strong relationships internationally and enter new markets, as well as taking up residence in a newly constructed head office. The Al Qiyadah building in Deira, constructed by the Saeed & Mohammed Al Naboodah Group and completed in 1973, was a mixed-use project incorporating apartments, retail space and offices that served as the Group’s first official headquarters.
