Aon Hewitt’s Best Employers Middle East Awards recognise companies committed to engaging employees and creating a positive working environment
Path Solutions has received an illustrious award for being one of the region’s ‘Best Employers’ for 2013 at an exclusive event hosted by organizers Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON).
The award for being one of the Aon Hewitt’s 15 ‘Best Employers in the Middle East 2013’ was presented to Mohammed Kateeb, Group Chairman & CEO at Path Solutions by Michael Gruber, Head of Leadership Consulting at Aon Hewitt EMEA, at a high profile ceremony held at The Address Downtown, Dubai.
