As part of our Wellness Activity, on 16 November 2023, WJ Middle East hosted an extraordinary Cultural Diversity Activity. This special event brought together the diverse backgrounds and culinary delights of our employees, resulting in a day filled with delicious flavors and unforgettable experiences.
As soon as we stepped into the venue, the air was filled with an intoxicating blend of aromas from around the world. Each employee had the opportunity to showcase their culinary heritage by bringing in dishes representing their cultural backgrounds. From the bold and spicy flavors of Indian curries to the delicate, nuanced tastes of Filipino food and especially tastes of Emirati food.
The event was a true culinary adventure, with employees joyfully sharing their treasured family recipes and explaining the significance of each dish. It was attractive to discover the stories behind the food, learning about the traditions and customs that have shaped the unique flavors of each culture.
The Cultural Diversity Activity on 16 November 2023 was a resounding success, thanks to the enthusiastic participation and contributions of each employee. It showcased the power of food as a unifying force and highlighted the incredible wealth of experiences that we bring to the table.
As we move forward, let’s carry the spirit of this event in our hearts, celebrating and embracing diversity every day. By fostering a culture of inclusivity, we can continue to create an environment where everyone feels valued, appreciated, and respected.
Whilst dewatering is WJ’s MO, we have also drilled hundreds of water supply and geothermal boreholes worldwide. Recently WJ Dubai were awarded the contract to install new water supply wells at four inland locations by DEWA (The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority).

With a focus on strengthening team bonds, WJ Team Steffin, Anu, Donna and Johannes were appointed to a corporate challenge which required mental and physical fitness, quick thinking and teamwork while having a blast! WJ’s insurance provider has organized this event, held on 28th September 2019. It was a thrilling, fun-filled adventure participated by more than 50 organisations that made up of over 94 teams.
SmartLife, a non-profit organization established in 2009 and which started as a voluntary group distributing food in labour camps has now expanded with a dozen projects under its banner. All projects are free of charge and work towards the betterment of blue collar workers in Dubai.
The beginning of a new era has been ushered in at the Doha headquarters in Qatar. WJ Groundwater Qatar has finally bid farewell to 2016, the Fereej Kulaib office and moved to new premises in Fereej Bin Omran. The move was finalised on the last day of February (2017). The project was led and chiefly organised by WJ Groundwater’s Doha-based office staff, headed by Admin Officer Randy Lazaro with aplomb.
Several senior members of WJ Groundwater’s staff complement took part in an ‘effective leadership training course’. The sessions took place at the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) in Dubai and proved to be a rewarding, worthwhile and fun experience.
