Welch Allyn, a leading medical diagnostic device company that delivers pragmatic innovation at the point of care, has again been named to the top 100 list of “The Best Companies to Work For” in Mexico, the country’s most comprehensive study of workplace culture. This year’s ranking placed the Tijuana factory at number 20, a significant jump from number 86 in 2013 and a momentous recognition for the location which opened its doors eight years ago.
“We are so pleased to be named to the ‘Best Companies’ list again this year,” said Welch Allyn President and CEO, Stephen Meyer. “This designation is a wonderful tribute and—even more importantly—a reflection of a company culture that truly values our employees and is committed to
staying connected with them.”
The study conducted by the Great Place to Work ® Institute Mexico identified the top organizations that foster employee relationships based on trust, pride and enjoyment. Organizations are selected primarily on the basis of a Trust Index™—confidential employee surveys that rate the employer on approximately 70 elements related to credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. In addition, the company must complete a Culture Audit through open-ended responses that explore the company’s philosophy, human resource practices, employee communication, recognition programs, diversity efforts and more.
“We are honored to be a part of this prestigious list for the sixth straight year, and we thank our employees for their efforts in Mexico,” added Meyer. “This is a true reflection of the workplace culture that exists in all Welch Allyn facilities worldwide. It represents our commitment to fostering a sense of community with all our employees around the world.”
Welch Allyn de Mexico employs over 900 people, all of whom were asked to participate in a survey that helped determine the company’s ranking. The Tijuana facility is a maquiladora factory strategically located closest to the company’s largest market, the United States. Tijuana is home to a very talented workforce that optimizes Lean Manufacturing and produces products that meet strict U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.
“Clearly our employees responded enthusiastically to questions about the environment at Welch Allyn de Mexico and their positive participation was key to receiving another spot on the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ list,” said Irma Avalos, human resource manager at Welch Allyn de Mexico. “It’s further evidence that our employees are proud to work for Welch Allyn and contribute to putting healthcare solutions in the hands of those who need them most in every corner of the world. It’s a wonderful reason to celebrate.”
