Where are the best places to work in the Middle East in 2022?
Dubai: Metropolitan Group, a leading real estate group in the UAE, was ranked fifth among the Top 10 Best Workplaces™ in the GCC. The company was previously also ranked among the Best Workplaces™ in 2022, marking the first time a real estate brokerage has made the list in the UAE.

Ibrahim Mougharbel, Managing Director for the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Oman, Great Place to Work®️ Middle East commented:
We are very excited that Metropolitan Group has made it to the top of our Best Workplaces™ in the Middle East List. Metropolitan Group is a great example of how a company can focus on the well-being of its employees and provide top-notch service to customers at the same time. It is always impressive when employees say that they are proud of where they work and that their management is doing a great job! The key ingredient of a company being successful on all levels is taking care of its employees and providing an outstanding work environment.
Following the COVID lockdown, Metropolitan’s management made it a priority to create an inclusive and supportive working environment, where employees would feel part of a larger, extended family. The group’s commitment to employee learning and culture has paid great dividends, achieving a 93% retention rate, which is well above industry standards.
Mike Fleet, Metropolitan’s Performance & Development Director said:
We are delighted with this achievement as it’s a great recognition of the hard work everyone has done to establish a top-class culture within the company. Learning, training and agent support are a big part of who we are at Metropolitan but many other factors have contributed to our success.
