May 10, 2019.
At a gala event on February 13, 2019, at the Copantl Hotel & Convention Center in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the Great Place to Work Institute honored 153 various organizations from Central America and the Caribbean, of which BLP was the only law firm in Central America to be distinguished as a Great Place to Work. In order to certify recipients of this honor, the Institute evaluates the annual effort of more than 136,000 collaborators that invest in human capital by analyzing their work environment and culture model as disclosed by responses to two questionnaires: the Trust Index and Culture Audit.
The Trust Index survey, which is applied to employees, evaluates five dimensions: credibility, respect, impartiality, pride, and companionship. The Culture Audit is applied to organizations and evaluates processes, policies, and practices related to human capital. The sum of the Trust Index and Culture Audit results determines the position an organization occupies on the yearly list of Best Places to Work.
Based on this analysis, BLP obtained the following results in the 2019 edition:
This is the second year in a row that BLP has been included among the best places to work, which not only signifies recognition of the firm’s efforts in the development of its human capital but also reinforces the process of continuous improvement in all the structures of the firm related to legal staff and service personnel.
“The evaluation tools of Great Place to Work allow us objective measurements of a series of factors, providing us with valuable information to monitor the evolution of our firm. It serves for continuous improvement, not as an end in itself, “said Neftalí Garro, partner of BLP and Coordinator of the Human Capital Commission of the firm.
BLP promotes leadership through the development of competition among its co-workers, fostered by tools such as the 360 evaluation, through which each lawyer receives feedback from his subordinates, peers, and superiors.
From this evaluation, our lawyers develop plans with their coaches enabling them to exploit the areas of opportunity they have found through the Personal Development Tool (PDTool), an instrument for coaching and personal development adapted to the needs and capacities of each individual. Regular coaching sessions have been shown to stimulate and motivate personal growth. As a result team members find ways to continue the development and progress of their career plans within the firm.
“Among the different human capital measures that we use at BLP, the PDTool provides staff members with a one-on-one link to the firm’s leaders and allows them to learn first-hand what is happening in the firm and its organizational culture, “said Garro.
We thank each of our team members for acknowledging good practices and the effort of BLP to be an inclusive, innovative company with opportunities for all.
