Honduran Company Among Best Places to Work in Central America and Caribbean
TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS, March 12th, 2019:
The Great Place to Work® Institute of Central America and the Caribbean has judged that Dinant is one of the best places to work in these regions.
Ricardo Gamero, Director of Human Resources, received the prestigious award on behalf of Dinant at a ceremony held in San Pedro Sula.
The award was determined by a rigorous staff survey conducted in September 2018 and consisting of 58 questions on all aspects of the company’s organization and culture, including respect shown by managers, credible leadership, the absence of discrimination, pride in the company’s reputation, and a sense of family and teamwork. Of the more than 150 organizations surveyed, Dinant came out among the very best for the whole region.
Company spokesman, Roger Pineda, said, “Dinant is very proud of its family of almost 8,000 talented, loyal and hardworking employees, and I am delighted that they have demonstrated their love for this wonderful company by voting us one of the greatest places to work in the Central American and Caribbean regions. Our staff do such incredible things on a daily basis – from building iconic brands, to protecting our beautiful natural environment, to volunteering many hours in local communities – and this award is testament to their hard work.”
Dinant is renowned in Honduras for creating thousands of sustainable jobs with company pensions and compensation levels well above the national minimum wage, and by significantly improving the skills, education and general health of the workforce. Dinant provides equal employment opportunities to all applicants, and its workforce welcomes employees with a wide range of disabilities, including four members of staff that suffer from visual impairments. In April 2016, Dinant pledged to donate land to enable nearly 500 employees to build high-quality affordable homes under President Juan Orlando Hernandez’ CONVIVIENDA project.
