Konecta consolidates its position as a Great Place to Work in America
Konecta fosters an agile, innovative, collaborative, proactive and flexible work culture; behaviors that make it a Great Place to Work.
Over 70,000 team members in the region participated in the Great Place to Work assessment, which includes the Trust Index™ Survey, Culture Brief™, and Culture Audit. These evaluations measure employee perception and the company's cultural maturity across five dimensions: PRIDE, EQUANIMITY, FELLOWSHIP, RESPECT, and CREDIBILITY.

We know that the growth of our employees will be reflected in the growth of our company, which is why we work every day under the slogan "grow by growing". Antonio Santocildes, Human Resources Director
The survey, which was carried out simultaneously in 6 countries Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Guatemala and Salvador, included qualitative and quantitative research, measuring the company's profitability and market value, productivity and performance of key business indicators, sales and growth over the last year, and finally, the mood of the work teams.
GPTW recognizes Konecta (within the segment of companies with more than 1000 employees), for providing a work experience with global standards of well-being, quality of life and development, for promoting policies and practices that improve the quality of life within the organization and for meeting the established certification requirements. As a result, 80% of the people surveyed choose Konecta as a Great Place to Work.
