Bayport Colombia named top employer
Bayport emerged as the best financial institution to work for in Colombia in the 2018 Great Place To Work survey. Named top in its sector, the operation is also the fourth best workplace for women in the country.
The Great Place to Work Institute® is a global leader in analysing and understanding the psychosocial health of companies. One of its activities is the annual Trust Index employee survey.
Bayport Colombia participated in 2017 for the first time, and got a score of 77.7 out of 100. In 2018, the score jumped to 89.1, with 99% of Bayporteers completing the survey. Bayport was one of 201 Colombian companies to participate in the survey, and one of 102 in the category of 500 employees and less.
The operation used the Great Place to Work® model to guide its transformation process over the past two years. The annual measurement gave management a good understanding of what staff members needed and expected, and they used the results to put strategies and action plans in place to close the gaps. In addition, during 2018 the operation conducted its own surveys and focus groups, and involved all teams in the creation of a good workplace environment.
A notable initiative that flowed from these engagement processes, was an 80-hour certified training programme that all leaders in the business went through to develop the skills that aligned them with Bayport Colombia’s leadership model.
