Once again this year, Grupo Intercom is in the TOP 10 Best Places to Work 2011
For the fourth year running, three companies incubated by Grupo Intercom, and Grupo Intercom itself, feature among the top ten positions in various categories.
The survey, carried out by the Great Place to Work® Institute, has recently published its 2011 ranking of the 50 best companies to work for in Spain, as rated by the employees, placing us at number six in the category for companies with between 250 and 500 employees.
In fact, 84% of our employees agree that Grupo Intercom is the best company to work for.
Some important characteristic features of the group's company culture are the horizontal structure of its system, its error management system, as well as flexibility and collaboration.
- Horizontal and accessible culture: 87% of people consider their bosses to be approachable — in fact, since the company was founded 15 years ago, nobody has ever had their own office!
- Error management: 85% feel that they have the freedom to make unintentional errors as part of the innovation and learning process.
- Total flexibility: 91% take time off work when necessary. This helps employees to balance their work and family responsibilities without problems.
- Collaboration: this is the key to sharing knowledge, and 89% believe there is a culture of collaboration within the company.
At Grupo Intercom, we are very proud to still be considered as a motivating place to work. We are very clear about what we want to create in our offices — an environment where people feel happy and in which we can further our employees’ careers, thus enhancing the prospects of the businesses to which they belong.
Antonio González-Barros, President of Grupo Intercom, is also very clear on the matter: “we want a highly people-orientated company, where individuals can feel happy and fulfilled in their work. For us, a company without this makes no sense.”
Being a Best Place to Work wouldn't be possible without the people who work at Grupo Intercom. So, we'd like to say thank you to each and every one of our employees for coming to work each day with a smile on their faces and for their will to innovate, improve, teach, learn, create, and take the plunge.
