Certification of our Group as a Great Place to Work® for the third consecutive year

For one more year –the third in a row–, our Group has been certified as a Great Place to Work® company as a confirmation of its commitment to achieving high standards in the workplace. This recognition, which is the result of a thorough research evaluation of the Group’s human resources, highlights the excellence in the workplace. The Group stands out for fostering a strong company culture that provides equal opportunities for all employees and promotes personal development, in a context where individual skill development is constantly linked to collective goals and joint effort.

Great Place to Work® is a global research, evaluation and consulting firm specialized in workplace culture. It offers certification and global recognition to companies that stand out for the high-trust, high-performance work culture they have built for their employees.

Our Group earned the Great Place to Work® certification following an evaluation of its human resources through the Trust Index® Employee Survey questionnaire. The survey focused on five key dimensions that embody the overall employee experience in the workplace:

  • management credibility
  • respect to employees
  • fairness in the workplace
  • employees’ pride, and
  • camaraderie in the workplace.

The Group’s approach is based on values, such as trust, respect, credibility, pride and teamwork, making it not only a successful employer but also a pioneer in shaping an inclusive workplace culture that empowers employees. Consistent with the Group’s sustainability strategy, Great Place to Work® recognition reaffirms that business success is inextricably linked to the constant investment in the value of human capital.
