Dubai, UAE: The Kanoo Group, a leading family-run organization, conducted a Covid 19 Vaccination Drive as one of its measures in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all its employees and their families. The vaccination campaign was held in 2 Phases at the World Trade Centre on 9th & 16th March 2021 which was organized by Ms. Amna Al Mheiri, in coordination with the Ministry of Health-UAE.

Right from the time Covid 19 infection hit the country, The Kanoo Group has always been at the forefront of introducing a lot of safety measures for all employees and  has put a lot of emphasis to ensure their health and wellbeing. The Human Resources team, led by Ms. Maha Kanoo is in-charge of providing a safe working environment for all.


As Vaccinations are currently being carried out only for targeted special category people (such as aged 40 & above and people with chronic diseases), the vaccination drive was even more important as it allowed all The Kanoo Group staff and their family members to avail themselves of the opportunity. Close to 500 staff and their families took part in the vaccination. Aside from its employees, the offer was extended to The Kanoo Group’s Joint Ventures where around 70 staff of Johnson Arabia also benefited from the initiative. Mr. John Miranda, HR Manager of Johnson Arabia expressed his sincere thanks to the Kanoo Team for facilitating this event for their staff also.

Every one of us – through our actions and decisions – has a responsibility, an ability, and an opportunity to contribute to the world’s response to COVID-19”.

“We are following guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local government regulations and containment measures. We are taking proactive steps to mitigate the risk of exposure for our employees, customers, contractors and partners. The Kanoo Group now takes pride in declaring that most of our customers facing staff are now vaccinated and this would go a long way in assuring our customers about a safe transaction with Kanoo Staff,” she added.

This is also an opportunity for The Kanoo Group employees to serve as role models in our community.

The Kanoo Group adopts protective measures due to coronavirus outbreak


Say No to Panic & Say Yes to Precaution


The Kanoo Group adopts protective measures due to coronavirus outbreak
The Kanoo Group conducts mandatory temperature checks to all employees and guests when entering the office premises in Dubai, UAE

Dubai, UAE: The Kanoo Group is instituting a number of protocols in response to the coronavirus outbreak, including barring employees from going to work when sick and mandating temperature checks through contactless thermometer to all employees and guests when entering the office premises.

The company may decide to restrict or deny entry to any person with symptoms of influenza and illness and give them advice to undergo further screening by the Dubai Health Authority when suspected to having the COVID-19.

Although The Kanoo Group has so far zero cases for the novel coronavirus, the HR Department headed by Ms. Maha Kanoo, General Manager – UAE & Oman (HR & Marketing) has sent out circulars to all employees outlining several measures to prevent outbreaks and has given detailed information on the numbers to call in case of emergency, including the steps for booking a COVID-19 Test provided that a person meets the criteria set by world health experts.

Earlier last week, HR also instructed employees to fill up a Travel Declaration Form for those who have travelled to infected countries within the last 28 days. Those who have travelled in these areas were asked to go through self-quarantine for a certain period, before re-joining.

The Kanoo Group has also increased sanitary protocols such as installing sanitizers in all workplace public areas and increased employee awareness on frequent hand washing. It also has distributed a number of masks to each of the divisions.

To respond to any critical situation in the future, The Kanoo Group has also formed a Quick Response Team to attend to any calls for guidance on critical situation at any given time.

Addressing the employees, Ms. Maryam Al Busaidy, HR Manager, Employee Services & Emiratisation (UAE & Oman) said, “We would highly appreciate your cooperation to keep our workspace as safe as possible. We also encourage others to schedule their travel plans for a later time.”

Mr. Mohammad Tariq, HR Manager (UAE & Oman) added, “We are implementing as much as possible the most effective measures to monitor, screen and protect the health of our employees. Everyone’s safety and well-being are the highest priority of The Kanoo Group.”

The World Health Organization has advised the public on basic protective measures against the new coronavirus including washing hands frequently with soap and water, or using alcohol-based hand rub; maintaining social distancing (at least 1 metre (3 feet) with people suffering from cough or fever; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; practicing respiratory hygiene (covering mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing) and avoiding physical contact when greeting such as shaking hands.

Further, to those who have recently visited infected areas, they are advised to stay at home if they begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until they recover. If they develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, they are advised to seek medical attention promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. 

Tariq further advised, “Follow our HR guidelines released from time to time, and stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Also follow advice given by our healthcare provider, our national and local public health authority on how to protect yourself and others from the COVID-19. Don’t panic, don’t spread rumours as it may involve penal action by law.”

“Be polite towards colleagues who are showing flu symptoms and practice self-isolation in case of sickness. Be supportive, careful, alert, and kind.”

The Kanoo Group has also planned disinfection measures across its premises which will be carried out the soonest.
