Encora Employees in Brazil Have Given the Company Top Marks for Its People-First Culture
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., November 14, 2023 – Encora, a digital engineering services company, has announced another recognition from Great Place to Work® Brazil. Its offices placed 5th in the Best Multinational Companies to Work for, 100 to 999 Employees, category. This recognition comes just one month after its recent 2nd place ranking as a Best Place to Work in São Paulo where 900+ employees expressed their appreciation for the company’s positive culture. The overall ranking further demonstrates Encora’s commitment to advancing a global work environment that puts employees front and center.
“We are proud of being recognized as a healthy and happy place to work. We believe it’s possible because of our commitment to promoting the well-being and mental health of our people, making sure that work-life balance is one of our top priorities,” said Augusto Cavalcanti, President of Americas, Brazil at Encora.
What makes Encora’s efforts in Brazil so unique and representative of a great place to work are the programs and best practices it has implemented to encourage a happy and healthy work environment for all. The company promotes mental health care through psychological support for employees who are going through difficult situations; those who may feel disconnected when working remotely or who require support to deal with their emotions. Encora's leaders undergo training that teaches them how to lead with empathy; encourage teamwork; and connect the team on a personal level beyond the technical matters inherent in their work. Encora has also placed an emphasis on assuring respect for diversity and equal access to opportunities, regardless of gender, age, and job position.
These efforts align with the goals set by Great Place to Work® Brazil and its certification requirements. The institute recognizes companies that view their employees as vital catalysts for their businesses’ success and implement measurable programs and practices that enhance the employee experience. Through its company culture, philosophy, and leadership, an organization that receives a GTPW™ certification has demonstrated that it puts its employees first and values how they view the company’s culture.
“We really care about our people. It's genuine. Everything we do is thinking not only about our employees’ well-being but also their families,” said Adriana Grandin, Director of Well-Being, Brazil at Encora. “We focus on the success of the business and provide excellent people management practices to ensure a unique work environment—diverse, innovative, and, above all, respectful.”
