Multiplex Middle East was awarded CSR Initiative of the Year for their Workers' Education Fund at the 2014 Construction Week Awards in Dubai, one of the region's premier industry awards events.

Selected from a shortlist of six, judges described the Fund as an "outstanding submission" and an "initiative with long-term benefits to communities".

The Workers' Education Fund was established to provide financial assistance for tertiary education purposes to children whose parents work for Multiplex Middle East and may not have the means to pay for a tertiary education. Since its launch and with the generous support of Multiplex staff, donating money and time, the fund has approved applications and covered education costs for over 50 employees' dependents.

After receiving the award, Sachin Nair, Corporate Planning Manager (and Fund Chair) said: "As a company we have undertaken many social initiatives, but this one is particularly close to my heart. It feels great for the company to be recognised in this way."
