Where would you like to work?

October 18, 2011

I’ve searched the website about the best places to work in Spain and I’ve found it.
Last Thursday when we were talking in class about the existence of this website and the companies of which we think that are the best to work, I remembered having read an article about the good working conditions of a company called “Pikolinos” which makes shoes and is located in Elche (Alicante). So I thought that the company “Pikolinos” could be on the list of the best places to work in Spain, but “Pikolinos” isn’t there in any year (2003 to 2011).
I’ve searched that article on the internet and I’ve found it.
The article is dated 07/09/2007, when the “Pikolinos’ company was awarded by the University Miguel Hernández and the Association of” Social Graduates “in Alicante with the prize on Prevention, Occupational Health and Quality of Employment.
According to the article, employees have a lot of perks: they have a sauna, a room for a nap, lunch is paid to them, and even a university degree if they want to study. Besides, the company pays for their employees life insurance premium.

Maybe if you read the article you’ll think that you want to work for this company or, at least, for a company with similar working conditions.
You can read the article if you click here.

    I think is wonderful that companies pay more attention to their employees improving their working conditions because when a worker is contented, satisfied in his job his production increase so in the end is more useful to the company.
    I hope in the future all of us will enjoy our jobs and not only be grateful to have one.

    I completely agree with you. When you are happy at work, you do much better!

    Nowadays we are happy if we have a job and we don’t really think if it is good or if it makes us enjoy. That’s a pity because we spend most of our time during the day working!
    I don’t care a lot if I’ve got a sauna at work but at least we should feel comfortable and enjoy where we are working!

    In theory,employees like the perks, but if they are not well paid they aren´t going to be satisfied in their jobs. That is called ” Maslow´s Piramid”,first of all your first necesities have to be satisfied and then you can consider the possibility of satisfying the other ones .
    Otherwise if the salary is correct the perks could be really stimulating for the employees.

    Looking for information about “The best companies to work for”• in Spain I have found a lot of websites about “The top companies with high standards in salaries and benefits”. (Strange).
    Sharpening the search I get some key values of the job applicants. The most important for them, beyond the salary, is the quality of life. People appreciate the flexibility to turn and even a “feminine style of leadership”.
