LACNIC Among the Best Places to Work in Latin America in 2020
June 3, 2020
The Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC) has been included on the 2020 list of best places to work in Latin America. The organization was ranked 24th in the Small and Medium category.
“This is the first time that Uruguayan companies are recognized on this list,” said Karina Urrutia, Head of Communication and Marketing at Great Place to Work Uruguay.
The ranking is based on data collected before the coronavirus crisis broke out. The companies that are part of the list are leading the way amid the pandemic and are showing concern for their employees, their customers and their communities during this difficult situation.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge facing organizations across the globe, and it puts a premium on being a people-first, inclusive culture,” said Michael C. Bush, Global CEO of GPTW.
In turn, LACNIC CEO Oscar Robles said that at LACNIC they “strive to create a climate of respect, communication and trust, not only because it is nice to work in this type of environment but also because we are committed to offering an environment that will favor the professional performance of our collaborators and therefore ensure the achievement of our organizational goals.”
GPTW's global research shows that companies worldwide aspire to build a high-trust culture, but the road to that goal has regional variations. In Latin America, the best places to work stand out for creating psychologically safe workplaces for everyone, regardless of each employee's hierarchy. They also recognize that two-way communication with leadership is extremely important, as is the fundamental sense of care among colleagues and employees’ ability to do their best when doing their jobs.
When a company goes to great lengths to create safe workplaces in the midst of a storm, employees give back by bringing out the best in themselves.
In this situation, creating safety is particularly important, as employees and companies struggle to deal with the economic and health challenges created by COVID-19.
