While the “Top Company” is a national recognition sponsored by one of the biggest Mexican Business Magazines, the “Great Place to Work” certification (GPTW) is a global standard for great workplace cultures. In Brazil and in India, more than 80% of the staff participated in the audit and earned Covestro the coveted distinction. Employees of both countries appreciate Covestro’s strategy, culture, compensations & benefits, working conditions, respect, trust and people focus.
Brazil’s HR Head Adriana Monaco is delighted about the distinction and highlights its value: “Being a GPTW-certified company gives Covestro visibility among our customers, prospects, suppliers and partners who value socially engaged, ethical brands that are recognized by awards and certifications. Internally, it enhances a sense of belonging and pride to be part of a great company.” Her Indian colleague, HR Head Ricky Kumar, emphasizes the benefits in the critical area of employer branding: “To attract a diverse workforce, it is imperative that we continue to build on our legacy brand and our new Covestro brand. The GPTW certification provides us with the right exposure and places us appropriately in the market.”
