Sharjah Electricity & Water Authority (SEWA)
Vision: “To be among the best authentic organizations in the world.”
Mission: “To provide reliable, efficient and sustainable energy and clean drinking water forabout 2 million people living in Sharjah, the cultural capital of UAE.”
On the 22nd of April 2014, H.H Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, member of the Supreme Council Ruler of Sharjah, issued an Amiri Decree to restructure SEWA’s hierarchy, by appointing Dr. Eng. Rashid Al Leem as SEWA’s Chairman. And so SEWA, with the authentic leadership of Dr. Eng. Rashid Alleem, started its new journey on unique ideas, creative strategies and hardworking people.
SEWA is always aiming for a brighter future, not only for its employees, but also for its customers and the Sharjah Community. SEWA strongly believes in the 15 winning principles in achieving a brighter future. It has a vision for the year 2020 which is the “Roadmap towards a brighter future”. We firmly believes in our 11 core values and our Success Module.
SEWA employees are an important asset and are always motivated to perform at their level best. Here at SEWA every month has a theme, and at the end of each month there is a gathering with the Chairman to award those employees who have contributed a little extra to SEWA. “I am creative” is another initiative introduced by Dr. Rashid that encourages staff to unleash their creativity, so that “every idea counts”.
