Hisham Al Amoudi: Prioritizing people over money in the time of crisis (E10)

Every business faces a situation where they have to decide between their employees and revenue. That’s when they have to understand employees are the key pillars of growth in any business and good employees always drive good business.

Some people don’t understand this concept and they lay off their employees way too quickly and regret it later, while great leaders know exactly what they’re doing and prioritize their employees over money, especially in times of a crisis.

In this episode of Dubai Business Podcast, we have one such leader, Hisham Al Hamoudi – CEO of Kamal Osman Jamjoon Group, a retail group with a turnover of over 1.2 billion Saudi Riyals. They operate almost 700 stores and are employing more than 3,000 people across seven countries.

The best part? They haven’t laid off any employees as a part of crisis management.

Tune in as Hisham speaks about strategies their company used to protect their business and people during this crisis, how they communicate with employees, and gives advice for people looking forward to achieving big.

This episode includes:

4:20: Our mission and vision is connected to how we reacted to the crisis
7:43: What we did to protect the business and people
16:30: Communication strategy with employees
19:30: How they digital transformed their business
24:00: Will the E-com trend continue?
32:30: Advice for people trying to achieve big in their career

  1. Well said! Very few companies think this way, and it’s nice to see that bosses like this still do exist.
    Keep it up!
