It is rightly said that the spark of innovation and growth is generated when different opinions are accepted.
Our aim is to foster an environment of trust and belonging, thus we encourage our people to call Daikin as ‘US’ & ‘WE’ and not ‘them’ or ‘the company’ in their future conversations.

Aziz Mohammed Ali Morkas
'My main goal when I undertook the Management Development Journey training was to help me improve my decision making, active listening, concentration, composure and reduce anxiety in high pressure situation and in situations where I am under fatigue. I certainly felt the changes in my communication and mental focus. I am experiencing an extremely positive effect in all factors of my life, not just on the job but also in my personal life. The training provided by Daikin is much more enjoyable. On the other hand, my self being have improved and more composed which really resulted me in making better decision and having more effective involvement. I greatly appreciate Daikin for providing the best available trainers.'

'I am pretty blown away by the great talent and skill of the people working with us in Daikin. I appreciate the depth of information, expertise, and other resources available. I also appreciate the “partnering” approach we’ve been able to develop over the past several years. I actually really like working here. My managers and co-workers are great and very nice which makes our discussions easy and flexible. We believe in maintaining good team relationship within our organization. It really developed my career and added knowledge in my life. Thank you Daikin for bringing the positivity and helping me achieve success in my career.'

'Journey of 19 phenomenal years with McQuay & then Daikin. Witnessing growth from US$ 4 million to US$ 230 million. Continuous expansion from GCC to Middle East and Africa and now setting up of affiliates in key markets. During the start of my career, I was handling 6 departments but as the company grows, the department has to be decentralized in order to mitigate risk, responsibilities and independence at work. Bringing in professionalism and strong controls to withstand any associated risks to business. What a fascinating journey and expansion of Daikin family during all these years. It’s a real home near to home and a family in true spirit. The Daikin culture of supporting core competencies, promoting young talent and multi-cultural organization and supporting employees during serious medical conditions. Worked under 6 bosses and have seen the diversity in management skills which really helped me to grow personally. It is a dream come true experience for me and my family who supported during those stressful and long hours of work.'
Pamela Cadelina Capa
'Quality work, positive competitive environment and learning opportunities are the reasons why I love working with Daikin. The organization focuses on bringing out the best in an employee by creating a drive that is fueled by the willingness to contribute, learn and win.
And our very dynamic Human Resource team ensures that the visions of the company are met and that employees are valued for their work and sincerity.
It has been an incredible eight years for me in Daikin and I look forward to more fruitful years ahead. I was molded from a raw youngster into an iron-maiden individual, where my full potentials are encouraged, developed and appreciated.
I am truly grateful and honored to be working with the world's Number 1, and to be a part of this amazing family.'
Praveen Damodaran Nambiar
'I joined McQuay in November 2005 reporting to the current Finance Manager, Mr. Kezar Jhabuawala and we were a very small team at that time. It’s very long way I have come through, though the journey was not tiring. I was assigned in the commercial department at the same time was involved in the admin affairs as well. I have learnt a lot in both departments.
Since then, I have seen a lot of faces coming and going, though it was not so pleasant to see them going. Had a very good opportunity to understand and interact with people with various nationalities and cultures and of course behaviors. Everyone was always kind to me and I, in turn, being a part of the HR team always tried to extend my maximum support to them, wherever possible. What I have learnt, on this seat is to have good patience. I feel proud to be the part of Daikin team and I look forward positively for the years to come ahead. I wish and pray that we become the No. 1 in the Middle East and Africa very soon.

'Daikin Middle East and Africa is a multinational and dynamic place to work with many opportunities for growth and personal development. I began working at Daikin in 2015 as a Receptionist. My role mainly involves communicating with people every day such as welcoming guests or customers, handling phone calls, emails, and coordinating travel arrangements. Being the first point of contact, it is important to have good communication skills and capability to deal with different kinds of people. As part of skills development, I joined the training organized by HR team. This training is suitable and beneficial to me and what I do. I attended the 2-days 'Customer Satisfaction Training' which focused on preventing and handling complaints, difference between ‘ordinary’ and ‘extraordinary’ service and good telephone manners and standards. I was really pleased that this training is a mix of lecture, activities and interactive. I would definitely recommend this training to everyone.'
'I started with Daikin in 2006 in the USA as a sales engineer in California. Having an engineering background, I worked remotely and travelled nationally to support customers technically with seminars, presentation and sales actions. It was interesting to be part of Daikin development in the USA market.
In 2010, based on family reasons, I decided to move to the Middle East and Daikin HR supported me in my decision and helped me move to the Daikin office in UAE.
In the Middle East, I was a consulting sales manager working remotely to support part of the Gulf area and North Africa. It was very challenging yet very interesting to interact with different kind of cultures, while still promoting the same Daikin culture.
Today, after 11 successful years with Daikin, as a sales manager, i am proud to be a contributor to the growth of the company in diverse challenging markets.'
