It’s fulfilling that our employees recognize this commitment.”
Encora’s efforts in Bolivia lie in the Cochabamba office’s dedication to reducing the gender gap by fostering equal opportunities and fair treatment for every employee. Women make up 26% of the Encora team in Bolivia and hold 41% of the leadership positions in the country, demonstrating a strong commitment to equity and inclusion in its core leadership.
To appoint the Best Places to Work™ with Gender Equity in Bolivia 2023, the Great Place to Work® Institute makes a comprehensive evaluation, including aspects such as providing training as a means of personal and professional development, inclusive communication, fair payment, special and unique benefits that improve internal relationships, equal opportunities for promotion, and an emphasis on a healthy work-life balance.
The Gender Equity Ranking eligibility relies on three pillars: the parity index, the overall index, and the women's general index, for the respective office. The parity indicator considers the total percentage of women in the entire company and in leadership positions. The overall index shows the average confidence achieved by all employees, reflecting their confidence in the work environment and company culture. Finally, the women's general index focuses specifically on female employees' opinions, providing insights into their workplace experiences. Companies that receive top marks across all three categories are ranked highly in the Gender Equity Ranking.
