Mr. Abbas Virji received the award on behalf of Ms. Shalina Virji
Chief Executive Officer at Shalina Healthcare Group, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Movers and Shakers
2015

The 'Movers and Shakers' award recognizes Ms Shalina Virji for her constant emphasis on equal opportunity, egalitarian approach on managing people and continuous work on building a high performance work culture. 

She developed a matrix organization structure to have flexibility and scalability in line with the growth plans of the organization. A transparent performance-management system was implemented as well to ensure a performance oriented culture within the organization. 

This system was divided into 2 parts. The first was an intra-communication where a communication platform was created to share the organizational performance and to receive employee's feedback monthly. The second was the creation of an atmosphere of trust, belongingness and ownership where employee's ideas and feedback were captured. This was enhanced through annual parties involving families to bring people together.
