Alghanim Industries, the company behind Wendy’s and Costa Coffee franchise operations, has introduced new policies to promote gender diversity across the GCC. The policies, which are already in effect across all Alghanim Industries departments and businesses in Kuwait, are being introduced across the company’s businesses in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
These include Wendy’s franchising operation, Kirby Building Systems factory in Ras al-Khaimah, sales offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, as well as KIMMCO sales office in Dubai.
George Lambros, Alghanim Industries chief human resources officer, said: “Increasing our maternity leave benefits is just the first step. We continue to change and improve our policies to encourage the hiring and retaining of more women. Alghanim Industries is at the forefront of this pivotal issue, and we hope to drive positive change in all markets.”
