The prestigious accolades are awarded by the Employers for Youth (EFY) study, which measures the perception of employees between the ages of 18 and 35 towards their organizations.

  • Brazil: 4th place 
  • Peru: 7th place 
  • Colombia: 16th place 

Additionally, Encora ranked 3rd in Costa Rica’s overall ranking for IT service providers, based on surveys from employees across all job positions.  EFY does not publish a tech ranking for Costa Rica.

Young employees are surveyed to learn their perception across the following dimensions: recognition, career development, benefits, talent, workplace experience, work environment, quality of life, reputation, innovation, and diversity & culture. 

This recognition underscores Encora's ongoing efforts to foster a nurturing environment for young talent and solidifies our commitment to create a workplace that is inclusive, supportive, forward-thinking, and conducive of innovation.
