We are proud to be a fully home grown UAE company. Realising and acknowledging that this nation has helped us reach where we are, we give back to the society in the ambience of which we have thrived. We also have never forgotten our origins and have therefore institutionalized a multi-pronged social responsibility strategy to support our initiatives in the UAE and India.

Dubai Cares Partnership
We have forged a partnership with Dubai Cares, the philanthropic organization working to improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries, to create awareness of the initiatives and the yeomen service it does among the public.
As part of our contribution we printed and distributed 45,000 copies of a co-branded calendar detailing the activities of Dubai Cares in various countries, to all major business houses and government offices in the UAE.
Dubai Executive Council Partnership
Kreston Menon is closely associated with many Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives in Dubai and the UAE. We consider it a privilege and honour to have partnered with “My Community… A City for Everyone,” an initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, transforming Dubai into a disability-friendly city by the year 2020. It was a great success.
Under this drive we distributed 50,000 copies of Kreston Menon’s corporate calendar for 2017, a desk top version, featuring the various activities under this noble project.
A Responsible Corporate Citizen
Right from our inception in 1994, we have made significant corporate social responsibility contributions in very innovative ways, through a multipronged strategy, that transcends the conventional ways of interpreting and implementing CSR.
Taking precedence over everything else is conducting our business in a fair, just and legal manner that conforms to the highest ethical standards.
Kreston Menon is an equal opportunity employer and we hire talented professionals – competent consultants, auditors, managers – irrespective of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or social standing.
We regularly conduct recruitment drives to employ differently abled people to welcome them into the mainstream, providing them opportunities to excel and be on par with other professionals.
Readying the current generation to take on the mantle of leadership for creating a better, prosperous, clean and green sustainable tomorrow, we conduct knowledge transfer sessions and offer internships to deserving students who have completed a course of study at prominent business schools and universities. These stints with Kreston Menon equip them with the skill sets required to excel in their places of employment and empower them to be successful entrepreneurs who could be creating wealth and employment.
As part of our contributions to the society, we support the Emiratisation drive of the government, tying up with the UAE National Students Training initiative, giving the opportunity to interns from Dubai Men’s Campus and Dubai Women’s Campus to work along with our staff, thereby gaining invaluable insight into the actual workings of auditing and consulting business and its various associated verticals.
As one of the leading audit firms in UAE, Kreston Menon is an industry leader in CSR and support a number of charities like Dubai Cares, Rashid Paediatric Centre, Manzil, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Able Foundation and many more. Our focus areas include schools for special needs children, education for children from the weaker sections of the society, sponsoring promising athletes and making substantial financial contributions to people in distress.
Kreston Menon has also been closely involved with Al Jalila Foundation, Al Noor Training Centre for Persons with Disabilities, Rashid Pediatric Therapy Center, Dubai Autism Center, Dubai Center for Special Needs, Dubai Foundation for Women and Children, Make a Wish Foundation, Red Crescent UAE, Indian Community Welfare Committee for many years.
Fervently believing that every human being and all corporates have to act as conscientious caretakers of our planet and hand it over to the future generations in a condition much better than we received it in, we assiduously care for our environment and promote eco-friendly practices in all our offices. We practice the 3 Rs of sustainability – reduce, reuse and recycle – in all seriousness, adding a fourth element, repurpose, to avoid wastage and this has become a way of life for us.
We truly believe that as a corporate citizen it is our job to ensure that we do what we can to develop sustainable communities and create a better quality of life for our fellow human beings, not just now, but also in the future.
