Maqbool demonstrated a high level of integrity and honesty, a judge at the FMME Awards stated
Taher Ali Maqbool from ServeU won the Unsung Hero of the Year award.
One of the judges remarked that the individual demonstrated a high level of integrity and honesty.
On 28th June 2019 Maqbool started his cleaning shift at Al Sabkha parking area where he found 15kg of gold worth AED2.5m in a black bag, and without hesitation, he handed the 15kg of gold to the authorities. In recognition of his honesty, this person was given a plaque by His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA); in addition, ServeU promoted him as a team leader for the level of integrity shown.
Gary Reader, general manager, ServeU, on behalf of Maqbool, said: “It is a great honor for Tahir to be recognised by the most reputed and well-known award ceremony in the FM industry. This recognition not only encourages him further but has made him extremely proud, it is also an inspiration to others.
“Tahir set a great example of what trust and honesty is for all our staff, who, on a daily basis deal or come across personal belongings. He has inspired our whole team with his honesty when presented with a rare opportunity. The recognition from FM Middle East Awards has only added further value and appreciation from that he has already received from ServeU and RTA, which sets a positive trend for ServeU’s staff.”
