As a human resources (HR) manager, Sabine is responsible for all HR related matters within the Middle East—this includes United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi, and Kuwait. She’s known to be very responsive in her approach and ability to ensure all tasks are completed as soon as possible. Sabine is also trilingual—something that comes in handy as the Middle East is highly multicultural.
In addition to her role with human resources, Sabine sits on our Inclusion and Diversity Council. The UAE alone has over 200 nationalities with over 80% of residents being expats—something that raises the need for us as an employer to consider the cultural differences at every level within Stantec Middle East. Inclusion and Diversity in the Middle East is evolving daily and being part of the council has given her a great opportunity to influence and engage our staff with the inclusion and diversity strategy.
Working in Dubai has given Sabine the flexibility to travel on a very regular basis. Recently, she went to Iceland and saw the Northern Lights for the first time—a huge tick off her bucket list!
