The employment company ManpowerGroup was ranked seventh among the most solid companies in terms of culture and organizational climate in the United States and its subsidiary in Puerto Rico was ranked number 28, according to the “TOP America 2023” ranking.
Alberto Alesi, general director of ManpowerGroup for Mexico and Central America, said the organization is very pleased with the way in which they have ascended to become one of the best employers in America and praised the achievement of ManpowerGroup Puerto Rico for placing number 28 out of the 110 in the country category. He highlighted that the company also achieved five other positions with its subsidiaries in El Salvador (20), Honduras (22), Panama (23), Guatemala (24) and the Dominican Republic (27).
“We are honored that Top Companies has recognized us based on the opinions of our collaborators, because every day they make ManpowerGroup the best place to work,” Alesi said.
Melissa Rivera Roena, the general manager of ManpowerGroup in Puerto Rico, stated that as a leading company in human capital solutions, achieving positions in the international ranking, in addition to being a great achievement, also entails raising the level of commitment.
“In the midst of all the crises that Puerto Rico has gone through, being positioned among the most ethical and reasonable companies in America due to the feelings of our employees, honors us and fills us with great pride, while inspiring us to continue developing the best well-being for our team,” Rivera Roena said.
The “Ranking Top America 2023” classification is carried out by Mexico-based Top Companies, a firm that specializes in measuring organizational culture and climate.
The report notes that the analysis is done by measuring the sociodemographic profile of each company and an inventory of physical evidence regarding its policies, practices and programs. The methodology includes a questionnaire addressed to employees with 112 closed questions and two open questions. A dozen organizational culture factors and five organizational climate factors are measured. Aspects of leadership, organizational dynamics, resilience, identification with the company, job growth, training, organizational motivation, work attitude, honesty, diversity and inclusion, company policies and social responsibility are evaluated.
This year, 150 companies from 110 countries participated and only 44 earned recognition.
TOP Companies President Laila Chartuni pointed out that “most companies see the ‘ranking’ to measure themselves and seek to appear in it with the aim of being an improved version of themselves.”
“Likewise, there are companies that use this resource to understand their cultural and general evolution within the organization, evaluating how their employees adapt to corporate culture,” she said.
The Top Companies ranking results showed that the 10 strongest brands in Latin America in terms of their organizational climate and culture are: Walmart, Centroamérica, Hyatt Inclusive Collection and Hyatt Regency Cartagena, Marco MKT, Essity, AVAYA, ManpowerGroup, Alas, Linde and Office Depot.
