Combining the salary with non-monetary benefits for its employees makes these companies stand out in Latin America
Probably, the best place to work is a small company that does not pay anyone to certify how well their workers spend it. However, that does not mean that the rankings are a sham. Many companies have a genuine interest in the welfare of their employees because they know that at the end of the day that is key to increasing productivity and retaining talented workers.
According to Octavious Black, a well-known British businessperson, the way to get people to work is by paying them a salary, but the way to make them commit to work is to combine it with an emotional salary.
The benefits such as growth opportunities within the company, the work environment, and the possibility of maintaining a balance between professional and personal life, together with other non-monetary incentives, are part of that emotional salary that contributes to the welfare of workers. With these aspects in mind, Great Place to Work evaluates and classifies workplaces in countries around the world each year. These are the best medium-sized companies (between 50 and 500 employees) to work in Latin America according to recent rankings.
