The National published an article on incentives and perks that companies offer to motivate their employees. Ambareen Musa, founder and CEO of Souqalmal.com shares her views.

“Some of the perks we have are flexible working hours, especially for those with kids, as it is the results that matter, and regular team outings to further instil the culture.”
