SYKES El Salvador was recognized with the Disability Award - Allies for Inclusion, in the "Private Company” category. This awards is sponsored in El Salvador by the British Embassy in El Salvador, FUNDEMAS, and the Joni & Friends Organization.
The nomination had as background the initiatives and practices of our “Equal Opportunity Employment” macro policy. In SYKES we have our goals very clear, and one of them is to be an active source of employment that provides the opportunity to work, learn and grow; and make sure we provide the conditions so that every associate has the same opportunities and equitable treatment in all different dimensions, such as: gender equality, disabilities, chronic medical conditions, sexual diversity and other minorities. These are some of the initiatives by which we are governed daily to be an inclusive and equitable place and that we presented to support our nomination:
- We develop awareness workshops on the disability theme.
- We respect and support the particular needs of our associates, that help them maintain their life quality.
- We adapt our facilities, common areas and work equipment for people with different types of disabilities.
- We own an specific evacuation protocol for people with disabilities in case of an emergency.
In 2017, we were the first company dedicated to BPO services in the Central American region to be certified as an organization committed to inclusion, diversity and equity by White Fox Consulting.
We continue to believe that our associates are the core of our business, so we will continue to strive to cultivate the inclusive and equitable culture that identifies us.
We thank the British Embassy, the Business Inclusion and Equity Index, FUNDEMAS and the Joni & Friends Organization for this recognition.
