Celebrating our Recognition as one of the 25 Great Places to Work in Uruguay
A great workplace culture is essential for any company that wants to attract and retain top talent, foster innovation, and achieve long-term success. A positive work environment can make all the difference in team satisfaction, motivation, and overall productivity.
That's why we are thrilled to announce that Kaizen has been recognized in the 2023 Ranking of Great Places to Work™ in Uruguay. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to creating a workplace culture that values and supports our team members, promotes diversity and inclusion, and fosters a sense of community and belonging. We believe that investing in our people and creating a positive work environment not only benefits our team but also drives our business forward.
What is Great Place to Work?
The Certification Great Place to Work™ is a program designed to recognize organizations with a high-quality work culture. The methodology used in this Certification Program is grounded in 30 years of research, aimed at quantifying organizational culture and comparing it with the Great Places to Work.
The Trust Index© comprises 60 statements that evaluate collaborators’ perceptions of their workplace, specifically relating to behaviors associated with trust. These statements are categorized into five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Impartiality, Pride, and Camaraderie.
In order to achieve the Certification™, the data gathered through the survey needs to meet the minimum requirement of a 90% level of statistical confidence, with a maximum margin of error of 10.5%.
Our Recognition in the 2023 National Ranking
We were recognized among 50 organizations of different industries and scales, grouped into 3 categories based on the number of employees:
- 10 companies with less than 50 employees,
- 25 companies with 51 to 300 employees (Kaizen is in this category)
- 15 companies with over 301 employees.
According to the results of the Trust Index©, 98% of Kaizen Softworks team members say this is a Great Place to Work, all things considered, compared to 60% of employees at market companies.
Here are our most notable outcomes:
How we Sustain a “For All” Culture
Creating and sustaining a positive workplace culture is essential for fostering a productive and happy workforce. One of the critical factors in achieving this at Kaizen is open communication and inclusivity in decision-making.
Encouraging a culture of transparency and feedback helps us foster a sense of community, trust, and accountability. Providing opportunities for team members to give and receive feedback helps us to identify areas for improvement and recognize individual and team achievements.
One great example of this is our recent office move, being one of the most mentioned aspects in the Trust Index© Survey to improve our company. The entire process of finding and selecting a new office was organized and executed by the interested members of our team. This allowed for a collaborative and inclusive approach that ensured everyone's needs and opinions were heard and considered. By valuing and implementing a consent process, we were able to choose our new office making everyone part of the decision.
On March 16th, the Club de Golf del Uruguay hosted a ceremony to celebrate the 2023 Ranking of Great Places to Work in Uruguay.
Being recognized as a Great Place to Work™ in Uruguay is a great achievement that speaks to our dedication to creating a positive and supportive workplace culture at Kaizen. Our commitment to open communication, inclusivity, and transparency has been key to building a strong sense of community and trust within our team.
By creating a culture where everyone's voice is heard and valued, we can foster an environment where our team feels empowered and motivated to contribute to our shared goals. We will continue to prioritize our people and invest in creating a workplace culture that is truly “For All”.
