With the conviction of generating a sustainable tourist destination that is socially respectful of diversity, the hotel has obtained the "Seal of Equality" from the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Nation.
Los Cauquenes seeks to remain active and in continuous beta. "Our objective is continuous improvement: to be able to transmit our philosophy of work and service, obtaining certifications that account for the process", details Natalia Tello -Operations Manager- in the framework of the granting of the "Seal of Equality", an initiative of the Ministry of Tourism and Deportes de la Nación, which highlights the gender perspective and diversity within organizations.
"In Ushuaia we stand out for our constant participation in training and certifications. I believe that we always rescue good messages, teachings that strengthen the Staff and that end up contributing to the service," Tello highlights.
In this sense, at Los Cauquenes we are convinced of following a line that is given at a global level and that has to do with inclusion, diversity and sustainability, as pillars that today promote the development of the tourism industry. According to the World Tourism Council, these components are decisive for achieving an annual growth rate of 5.8% over the next 10 years.
"Analyzing the guidelines required to obtain the seal, we noticed that we had already been working in an inclusive, accessible and respectful modality," Tello warns, and details: "We made some changes in job names -which also applies to talent searches- and we developed the organization chart of the company detailing them by gender. This certification leads us to analyze and express the information in another way and I see it very well".
Issues such as salary, licenses and benefits are issues that have always been fairly applied, since we consider that our staff is our most valuable resource, as well as the presence of women in middle and senior management. "Situations such as family and work violence were addressed with the aim of not naturalizing them. These are issues that we often avoid as a society," Natalia makes clear.
