It’s never easy to create and sustain a great workplace. The task of transforming and maintaining great workplaces is even more difficult when those accomplishments are measured against similar kinds of companies in other countries. The 100 companies on the three Latin America lists are recognized for a level of commitment and hard work that crosses national borders.
All 100 companies clearly demonstrate the attributes of a great workplace – an environment where your trust the people you work for, have pride in what you do, and enjoy the people you work with. These companies created and maintained the policies and practices that helped them achieve organizational objectives with employees who give their personal best and work together as a team or family – all in an environment of trust.
Congratulations from all of us at Great Place to Work®!
Companies on the Latin America lists demonstrated their courage and confidence to build great workplaces even if whether they reduced the size of their workforce (true for one out of five companies on the lists) or added jobs (true for more than half of the companies on the list.) Great workplaces usually perform better on the public markets, attract more job applicants, retain more employees, and suffer less theft.
