Mexico City, March 22, 2012
A survey by the Great Place to Work Institute (GPTW) ranked ProMéxico third, two places higher than in 2011. Of the over 45 countries included in the survey, Mexico is the only one to rank government institutions as well as companies.
ProMéxico is one of the best government institutions to work in, according to the results of the Great Place to Work (GPTW) survey published on Thursday. It is ranked as the third Best Government Institution to Work For in 2012.
ProMéxico moved up in the ranking for the third year in a row, having previously occupied the sixth and fifth position in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
Great Place to Work conducts a survey to find out which are the best companies to work for in Mexico, by applying questionnaires directly to employees and creating a list of companies with the highest scores based on employees’ responses. GPTW’s ranking is based on five dimensions: credibility, respect, impartiality, pride and comradeship.
GPTW’s survey is applied in 45 countries, but Mexico is the only one to measure the workenvironment in government institutions. This year, 14 government institutions obtained TheBest Government Institutions to Work For certification.
In the top five spots were Trust Funds Instituted in Relation to Agriculture (FIRA); Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) – Center West Division; ProMéxico; the Human Rights Commission (CNDH) of the state of Hidalgo; and the Ministry of Social Development (SEDESOL) of the state of Chihuahua.
According to GPTW, a good place to work encourages greater commitment fromemployees, which impacts productivity in companies and, in the case of Mexico,government institutions.
