United Capital pull the trigger to start the Race to Dubai

Last month we launched our first ever employee of the year competition where, not only will the winner be rewarded with an incredible prize, but they will be invited to the annual company conference where they will help shape the future of the business.

In July 2021, we opened our first Middle East office in Dubai, UAE, marking a move onto the international stage. On 1st September 2021, in a video to all 600 group employees, our CEO, Graeme Carling, announced our first company-wide employee of the year competition, the aptly named, Race to Dubai.

The competition focusses on our four company values, and encourages any, and all, employees to nominate themselves, or their colleagues.

At United Capital, we believe in the power of the individual, as well as the team. We want our employees to be accountable, just as the company leaders are. Only by telling our people what values we admire, can we start to drive the behaviours necessary for achieving our ambitious group goals.

The competition is simple, the company expectations of the individual is clear, and the reward is significant…an all-expenses paid, 5-star, family trip of a lifetime, and an invitation to shape the future of a fast-growing, forward-thinking business, by attending our annual company conference in May 2022.

Group Marketing & Communications Director, Fraser Kirk, discussed the reasoning behind the launch of the competition, and how it will help the business achieve it’s targets.

We are actively looking to acquire building services and facilities management businesses across the UK and welcome contact from anyone considering the future of their business.
