Employees Recognized Mental Health Programs, Leadership Development, and a Differentiated Benefits Package as Key Factors in Making Encora Brazil a Top Workplace
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 20, 2022 – Encora, a global next-gen product engineering provider, today announced its offices in Brazil have been named a top workplace by Great Place to Work® (GPTW™) Brazil in the average-sized multinational companies category. Encora was ranked second among 35 contenders in the category. The Brazil ranking comes in shortly after the São Paulo interior ranking, in which Encora reached second place running with 50 other competitors.
“The results of this year’s GPTW™ Brazil are a true honor,” said Augusto Cavalcanti, President Americas, Brazil Division, Encora. “We won second place in the Best Companies to Work for in the São Paulo Interior category in September and, now, the second position in the national ranking; two unprecedented achievements that are significant because they validate our commitment to maintaining a healthy work environment and encouraging teamwork.”
GPTW™ certifications are a result of an anonymous survey, which aims to validate a company's organizational culture to determine whether its employees consider it a consistently good place to work. According to Great Place to Work® Institute research, employees in certified companies are 93% more likely to be happy with their jobs; the chances of receiving fair pay and promotion opportunities are doubled; and there is a significant increase in the quality of leadership.
“Encora maintained an excellent performance in the Brazil Ranking in 2022 among more than 180 companies. Competing in the range of medium-sized multinational companies, it has reached the second position. Improvement in the employee confidence index between 2021 and 2022 has been the key factor in sustaining Encora among the best companies in the country," says Lucas Madio, Customer Success Analyst, Great Place to Work® Brazil.
Encora Brazil has been recognized for more than 20 GPTW™ awards in three categories (São Paulo Interior, Multinational Average-Sized, and Information Technology), rising annually in these rankings. The company began its journey of focusing on a people-first philosophy more than 13 years ago, with the well-being area. In the early 2010s, Encora realized that its management practices, which focused on people, well-being, and a collaborative environment, were gaining more and more prominence in the technology market. The company doubled down on its commitment to creating a positive experience for employees, which has led to satisfied employees and impressive growth in Brazil and globally.
Encora’s global leadership team also supports its regional cultures by developing learning & development opportunities and partnerships; launching new tools and platforms to keep team members engaged and connected; delivering employee benefits such as flexible and remote work; and investing in tools to improve processes.
