"No matter how many buildings, foundations, schools, and hospitals we build, or how many bridges we raise, all these are material entities. The real spirit behind the progress is the human spirit, the able man with his intellect and capabilities."

Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Former Ruler of Abu Dhabi and Founding President of the UAE

This human spirit has been a source of our strength at the Mohamed Hareb Al Otaiba (MHAO) Group, an Emirati family company established in 1946.
We are a people-first culture.

Who we are today is because of our people - our MHAO Group family. People who are our pillars of support, people who drive strategy into action, and people who believe in our mission to improve our customers’ lives.

Culture, after all, starts at the top. Our founding family member led this people-first culture and two generations later, we still nurture the power of the human spirt.

As of 2020, the Group along with its companies are home to more than three thousand employees across 50 nationalities. Several of our employees have been with us for decades, adding to the diversity and multiculturalism we support. Our career advancement policies aim to foster professional growth and personal wellbeing.

In our humble view, we are an employer of choice because the stories you will hear from our people are stories of belonging, community, trust, and dreams. Stories about how the Group has enabled a better life for employees and their families.

Almost 75 years later, we are still guided by our founding philosophy and shared belief to make people feel empowered, engaged, and above all, valued.
