LOS ANGELES — Cacique LLC., one of the country’s top authentic Mexican food brands, has been recertified as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work® for the fourth year running. The company earned this honor based on extensive ratings provided directly by its employees through anonymous surveys.
Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, including many in-person company traditions being disrupted, leadership at Cacique made it a priority to ensure its employees continue to feel valued, appreciated and proud to be a part of the team. Beyond the implementation of COVID-19 safety protocols to ensure the health and well-being of all of its employees, Cacique found new ways to foster workplace culture, including activities ranging from a Virtual Halloween Costume Contest to socially distanced drive-in movie experience and more.
Here’s what employees had to say about working at Cacique in its survey at the end of 2020:
- 88% say Cacique is a great place to work, compared to fifty-nine percent at a typical U.S.-based company
- 91% say that when you join the company, you are made to feel welcome
- 90% want to work at Cacique for a long time
- 90% are proud to tell others they work at Cacique
“Nothing is more important to me than hearing Cacique employees enjoy working here and that the percentage who feel Cacique is a great place to work continues to grow, especially after the challenging year we all faced together,” said Gil de Cardenas, CEO at Cacique. “Our employees play a critical role in the success of our company, and we know that without their hard work and dedication, Cacique would not be the company it is today.”
“We congratulate Cacique LLC, on their Recertification,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Best Workplace List Research at Great Place to Work. “Organizations that earn their employees’ trust create great workplace cultures that deliver outstanding business results.”
As part of the analysis, Great Place to Work utilizes the Trust Index™ survey to uncover consistencies in employee’s comments, and the word that came to the forefront among employees’ comments was “Family” – one of the Four Pillars upon which Cacique was founded and that still guide the company today.
