Tips for setting up an efficient workspace

  Setting up an efficient workspace can greatly improve your productivity and overall well-being. Here are some tips for creating a workspace that is both comfortable and organized: Declutter: Remove any unnecessary items from your workspace, such as old papers, knick-knacks, or anything that does not serve a purpose for your work. Clutter can cause distractions and make it difficult to focus. Comfortable seating: Invest in a comfortable chair that provides good support for your back and is adjustable for your height. You will be spending a lot of time sitting, so it is essential to have a chair that is comfortable and promotes good posture. Good lighting: Make sure your workspace has adequate lighting, preferably natural light. If natural light is not an option, invest in a desk lamp that provides sufficient lighting for your work. Ergonomic desk: Your desk [...]

Growing up I changed my mind a couple of times about what I wanted to do. In my early school days, I thought I should become a priest but later I realised that, “It’s not my cup of tea”. Later I chose finance as my higher education with the object to become a professional in that field. I was then introduced to Oryx World and have been here for a year and a half. I’m the Accountant of the company so I prepare the financial records and handle all receivables and payables. “I hope to be in a senior level management position eventually”. The great thing about here are the unexpected birthday celebrations organised by the colleagues. I have a very small but beautiful family that consists of four members. My father is a farmer and my mother is a homemaker. [...]

I have been working in Oryx World for 3 years. “I have a great interest in what our organization in achieving with clients’ satisfaction”. When I was part timer in Oryx, they gave me a chance to work with them as full time. “I love that our company emphasizes professional development opportunities”. I would take full advantage of the educational resources available because I wanted to become a successful woman when I was younger.  My role here is to greet and welcome clients and visitors, assist our clients, answer calls, administrative work and monitor listings. My long-term goals involve growing with a company where I can continue to learn, take on additional responsibilities, and contribute as much value as possible to the team. In my spare time I like to explore, go out with friends, watch movies and read books. I [...]

When one of my friends told me that Oryx is looking for an Office Boy, I immediately applied for the job and that was more than four years ago. I serve tea, coffee and water for my boss and our clients. I also clean the office, check the supplies for the office and pantry and assist the clients’ needs. The parties at Christmas and employee’s birthdays are memorable moments for me. I want to take care of my family back in Sri Lanka and support their needs, especially financially. There are five members in my family including me, my father, father-in-law, mother-in-law and my lovely wife. I really enjoy playing games and going out with my friends to watch movies. “My goal is to become successful in life and become a good husband and father to my future kids, and to travel [...]

“I am motivated to work because Oryx World is a number one growing business centre”. Hopefully in five years I will be living back in my home country of Sri Lanka and running my own business in tourism. The last time I went home was 18 months ago. I have been here nearly five years and got the position as Messenger through one of my colleagues. I like bikes, but inconsiderate drivers make me angry. My hobbies are riding which I have been doing for 18 years, and going to the gym, but to be honest I have no spare time because I dedicate all my time to work. “If I had three wishes, I would cure all the cancer patients and people who are terminally ill, second to live a peaceful and happy life with my family and third, to [...]

Wills and Guardianship for Business Owners

How I Can Help You? Business owners have more people relying on them than employees. If the worst should happen, we have a whole network of people who would be affected: family, employees, suppliers and customers. Having a structure in place which outlines what is to happen to your business in the event of your death or incapacity has many advantages. For me, the principle benefit is control. I have spent many years and countless hours developing my business (Great British Wills) and I want the benefit of all that effort to be passed on to my family. Reasons to Work with Me Qualified and License Great British Wills is a DED licensed company based in Dubai.
