The companies were ranked on the basis of the opinions women expressed in the annual survey on internal working environments, the percentage of women in leading positions, and the companies' practices in women's development.
Buenos Aires, 14 July 2020 – PRESS RELEASE
Santander was distinguished by Great Place to Work as one of the five "Best Workplaces for Women" in Argentina among companies with more than 1000 employees. This is the second time this ranking is created for Argentina and more than 30 organisations were singled out for their efforts to create and maintain an excellent workplace for women.
Three main parameters are the basis for the ranking: the opinions of women, as expressed in the annual anonymous and confidential survey on internal working environments, the percentage of women in leading positions in each company, and the companies' practices in women's empowerment and development.
"One of the core elements of our aim at Santander is to foster diversity and inclusion. It's part of our culture. Greater diversity and inclusion allow us to grow as people, aware of and valuing differences, as well as to grow as a company, offering the best service to our customers and consolidating a great workplace for our employees", stated Verónica Climent, head of People Management, Costs, Property and Security.
