Copa Air named top employee

Copa Airlines has been named again as one of the 10 Best Employers in Latin America by the business magazine AmericaEconomia. The airline was also part of this list in 2004.

The magazine conducts the survey in conjunction with Hewitt Associates, a global human resources consultant with headquarters in Chicago. The survey evaluates several factors related to the work environment, including the effectiveness of human resource programs, corporate governance, employee orientation, communication, compensation, leadership and benefits.

“We are committed to maintaining a highly motivated and trained workforce and providing a pleasant, stimulating work environment,” said Alexander Gianareas, Senior Director of Human Resources, Copa Airlines. “This regional recognition by international experts is a validation of that commitment, which makes it possible for us to have world-class coworkers.”

AmericaEconomia, the leading business magazine in Latin America, began publishing in 1986. The magazine has editorial offices in Santiago, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Sao Paulo and Miami, as well as a network of correspondents in major world markets.
