For the second year in a row, Henkel Argentina was placed in the prestigious Apertura magazine ranking on the 130 best employers of the country. The company was ranked on third position in the category "less than 200 employees," and is the only industrial company within the top four.
The study was carried out through an audit of 70 criteria items, structured in five focal areas: career; remuneration; work environment; working hours and conditions; and training. Each focal area includes diverse topics, such as career planning, compensation policy, workplace services and CSR activities. Research also included interviews with the most senior as well as the most recent employees of the company. The investigation included over 400 organizations, but only 130 entered the ranking as they exceeded the necessary 400 points-mark.
It should be noted that only nine of the 130 listed companies are of German origin. Among them, considering all categories, Henkel ranked in third place, slightly behind SAP and BASF.
Carlos Martínez, Human Resources Manager of Henkel Argentina and Head of Governance for Latin America, says: "Repeating this achievement gives us great satisfaction, as we constantly work to generate innovative initiatives to inspire our people, meanwhile we also seek a better work-life balance."
"Inspire is one of the pillars of Henkel´s strategy, so we are proud of this contribution. But it also commits us to continue our work every day, thus making our company an increasingly attractive place to work by retaining and attracting the best talents," concludes Guillermo von Bergen, President of Henkel Argentina.
