EDP Renováveis is one of the top 10 Great Places to Work in Spain

On April 22nd 2015, Great Place to Work (GPTW) celebrated its third edition of the awards ceremony for the top 50 companies that comprise the Best Workplaces Spain 2015 list. For the fourth consecutive year, EDP Renováveis is the only company in the energy sector that integrates this exclusive list, reaching on this occasion the eighth position in the company ranking within its category (companies with 250 to 500 employees).

The event, which brought together over 500 people, once again underlined how important it is for employees of any company to recognize the company as a great place to work, regardless of their sector and size.

Each year GPTW prepares the Best Workplaces list through a meticulous analysis, evaluation and certification process. 305 companies with different numbers of employees and from several sectors including hotels, automotive, services, banking and pharmaceuticals, among others, were analyzed this year. The energy sector was represented only by EDP Renováveis, which surpassed the score obtained in 2014 by 9 points.

The study is based mainly on the employees’ perception about their company but also on the organization’s corporate culture, through its HR policies and processes. The purpose of this list is to identify companies that can be considered a benchmark for other organizations.

The methodology that the model applies is based on a two-fold analytical procedure consisting of a questionnaire that employees must complete (Trust Index), which represents two-thirds of the global score of the process, followed by an analysis of the organization’s corporate culture, which is conducted by HR and represents one-third of the remaining score.

EDP Renováveis consolidates for the fourth consecutive year its position among the best companies to work for.
