Empower sees 17% rise in staff numbers since 2010

Empower has announced that its employee numbers rose by 17% in 2012, compared to the year 2010.

Ahmed Bin Shafar, CEO of Empower, said that the increase reflects the rapidly growing clientele and services of Empower. He said that there had been a rise in demand for district cooling as more real estate projects opt for the centralised system.

“The actual increase in the use of district cooling services is driven by the growing number of buildings and apartment units. We are executing a plan to put the company on the global front and this can only be done by developing the capabilities of all technicians, client servicing employees and management executives,” Bin Shafar added.

Empower said it is implementing a human resources training strategy as it is the primary contributor in strengthening its position in the regional and global markets.

In 2012, the company also launched several power plants and client servicing centres as part of what it says is “the company’s strategic planning to provide high quality district cooling system which reduces energy consumption, unlike the traditional air conditioning systems.”
