Twelve members of Sheriff’s top team have just returned from a five day trip to Dubai, a reward from the company for all their hard work and loyalty over recent years!

Including Company Directors, Contract Managers, Site Managers and Foremen, the team were treated to a stayover in a five star hotel plus an itinerary of site seeing trips and meals out.

Find out more about what they got up to in this week’s blog.

Rewarding our team

An all expenses paid trip to Dubai for twelve people may sound like something of an extravagance, particularly given the current circumstances around rising business costs and a housebuilding slowdown.

However, despite the pressures of recent years, Sheriff Construction has still managed to grow the business and much of this success has only been possible due to the dedication given by employees and subcontractors who work across our brickwork and roofing divisions.

Managing Director, Ekrem Mahmutaj, commented:

“Whilst it’s not been without its challenges, we’ve fortunately been able to build up our company to the point where we’re now taking on multi-million pound contracts. Nobody is responsible for this achievement alone. It’s been a team effort and so we decided it was time to reward our team for their ongoing loyalty and commitment. The trip also acted as a great team bonding experience.”

So, what happened in Dubai?

There’s a saying that goes “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Well, the same cannot be said for this trip to Dubai because we’re about to tell you all about it!

Aside from enjoying some relaxation time (drinks by the poolside, shopping, beach time etc.), our guys had an itinerary of trips which included:

  • 4-wheel drive sand safari followed by dinner in the desert
  • Sea cruise by yacht with dinner
  • Visit to the Burj Khalifa, which at 160 storeys is the tallest building in the world
  • Camel riding in the desert

With all of that, it’s not hard to see why our team were (quite literally) jumping for joy!

We hope everyone had a great time and the trip has left you with some amazing memories. We’re sure you’ve all got load of photos so please share them with us over on our Facebook or LinkedIn pages.
