In a recently held physical award ceremony at the Abu Dhabi Chamber headquarters, Tristar Group Chief Administrative Officer Nagabhushan Balaji and Business Excellence Manager Mohan Dharmarajan received the Silver Award from the Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Award (SKEA) under the Services Category.

His Excellency Abdullah Mohammed Al Mazrouie, Chairman of the Federation of the UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry and His Excellency Saeed Abdul Jalil Al-Fahim, Chairman of SKEA Higher Committee, handed the Silver Award to the Tristar Group and 20 other companies which won in various categories.

SKEA was launched by the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ADCCI) way back in 1999 as a blue print, a roadmap and a methodology for continuous improvement aimed at enhancing the competitiveness of the Business Sector in Abu Dhabi and the UAE using the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) model. The EFQM model provides a framework allowing organizations to determine their current ‘level of excellence’ and where they need to improve their efforts. The model also helps to ensure that business decisions incorporate the needs of all stakeholders and are aligned with the organization's objectives.

“Tristar as a company has established the three pillars People, Processes and Systems which help in continuous improvement. We strive for excellence in whatever we do under the leadership of our Group CEO, Mr. Eugene Mayne. This helps us cater to the expectations of all our stakeholders, internal and external and eventually realize our goal to be a truly world class organization. The feedback report from the SKEA Awards office will further help us identify our strengths & areas of improvement which will help us in our march towards excellence ” said Nagabhushan Balaji.
