A key part of Grupo Vidanta's recognition for the ninth consecutive year as one of the best companies to work in Mexico is programs and incentives that inspire its employees to grow and develop within the company, which is undoubtedly a high percentage of retention.

Currently 30% of the maintenance team, 25% of the food and beverage collaborators and more than 20% of the staff of housekeepers have activated life and career plans. If they were to meet their objectives, they would all be able to obtain managerial and managerial positions in periods of one, three and five years.

In addition and during its history, Grupo Vidanta has been employer of whole families, reason why nowadays, up to three different generations form part of its equipment and countless cases of success have arisen, like the one of Juanita Bocanegra in Vidanta Los Cabos, who joined the Group 12 years ago and was named "Collaborator Star", a recognition created by the company to reward the effort, excellent work and the incredible attitude of its collaborators.
During the ceremony, Grupo Vidanta also received special recognition in the dimension of "Pride", one of the five evaluated by Great Place to Work and which reflects the deep feeling of belonging of its collaborators, praising the team achievements, as well as their contributions to the community. This distinction is extremely important because it represents the voice of the collaborator and evaluates his pride in three lines: work, team and company.
