LONDON, March 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
For many boardrooms around the globe, it is understood that good corporate governance is essential for strong long-term business prospects. It can help organisations improve their performance, gain access to capital and weather fluctuations in the economy.
This understanding has spread across the Middle East, with corporate governance frameworks developing significantly in recent years. Increased enforcement of corporate governance rules and regulations has been particularly noticeable in the Middle East region and, for many, establishing sound practices is something that sits at the heart of everything their organisation does and aims to achieve.
In recognition of this, Ethical Boardroom Magazine - the journal for global governance issues - has named the companies leading the way in the Middle East in its prestigious annual Corporate Governance Awards.
The Ethical Boardroom Corporate Governance 2015 Awards recognise and reward outstanding companies that have exhibited exceptional leadership in the area of governance to ensure protection and long-term value for all their stakeholders. All finalists are publicly-listed companies that have undergone a thorough analysis of 120 governance factors and extensive scrutiny on governance attributes categorised under four pillars - Board Composition, Board Committees, Shareholder Rights and Transparency.
The winners of this year's Ethical Boardroom Corporate Governance Awards Middle East are revealed in the new issue of Ethical Boardroom available now. Detailed information on the Award winners in the Middle East can also be found at http://ethicalboardroom.com/corporate-governance-winners-2015-middle-east/
