At Zubi Group, our commitment to creating a healthy, flexible and sustainable work environment is not only a part of our mission, it is at the very heart of our corporate culture. Recently, this commitment was recognized in a way that fills us with joy and pride. At the Healthy, Flexible and Sustainable Company (SFS) 2023 International Awards Gala, organized by CVA and ORH Human Resources Observatory and supported by the Ministry of Social Rights and Agenda 2030, Zubi Group won first place in the Small Business category. This recognition underlines our focus on well-being and work balance, as well as sustainability.
A commitment to well-being at work and flexibility
On the road to this achievement, the jury highlighted that Zubi Group is “a company that is committed to healthy and sustainable business growth through a culture of care for its employees that is equally healthy and sustainable“. And this commitment is not just a slogan; it is a reflection of our firm conviction that the well-being of our employees is a fundamental priority.
Our investment in the physical and emotional well-being of our team is a key element of this vision. We believe and advocate that healthy, happy employees are more productive and capable of meeting the challenges of today’s workplace.
Flexibility and mutual trust
In addition to wellness, flexibility is another cornerstone of our work culture. At Zubi Group, we believe that work flexibility is essential for our employees to achieve a balance between their personal, family and professional lives. Our total flexibility model is based on mutual trust between the company and employees, allowing our employees to manage their work time in the way that best suits their needs and responsibilities.
In an interview recently published on our blog, our Chief People Officer, Elena Yepes, shares Zubi Group’s vision on work-life balance, flexibility and well-being at work.
In her own words, “We believe that a healthy and sustainable company starts with the well-being of the people who make it up. That is why we promote a work environment where collaboration, flexibility and trust are fundamental. Our mission is to build a better world for everyone, and that starts here, in our workplace.“
This vision has become a reality through our ongoing commitment to wellness, flexibility and sustainability, and recognitions such as the SFS Awards motivate us to continue our efforts to lead a change in the way companies address wellness and work balance.
