Gallup once again selects BBVA as an exceptional workplace

BBVA received the Gallup Award for one of the world’s top workplaces. This marks the third time the financial institution has received this global recognition.


The U.S. consulting firm Gallup selected BBVA as one of the most exceptional workplaces in the world. The Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award is a prestigious accolade that recognizes organizations that are committed to identifying excellence, promoting innovation, fostering employee engagement and building a results-based, motivating corporate culture.

“This recognition by Gallup is an award for the commitment of the entire BBVA Group. One of our six strategic priorities is to have the best, most committed team, and this award encourages us to continue working on this,” said Carlos Casas, Global Head of Talent and Culture at BBVA. BBVA Employee participation in the survey was 95.6 percent this year, and half of the teams received an overall average of 4.2 out of a score of 5.0 or higher.

“We take pride in knowing that our efforts to improve the day-to-day work of our professionals is valued, and that together we are building the best place to work in the world,” added the head of talent management at the bank. In the last year, BBVA has expanded its value proposition for employees, adding one hundred measures for flexibility and work-life balance in Spain by signing the new BBVA Equality Plan; reinforcing its international development and mentoring programs; and putting the focus on initiatives related to employee well-being and health. In addition, the bank remains committed to diversity and inclusion measures, such as the new goal of reaching 36.8 percent women in management positions, a new program to contribute to this goal and the launch of a manual to combat ageism, among other measures.

Employee engagement

“Congratulations to the 60 organizations that have redefined what it means to be a great place to work. Your commitment to creating environments where employees are listened to, valued and positioned to use their strengths every day is what sets you apart. Thank you for setting a new global standard in what it means to be a thriving workplace,” said Jon Clifton, Gallup chief executive officer.

Gallup’s meta-analysis on team engagement and performance is the most comprehensive workplace global study, with data on more than 2 million employees in 276 organizations across 54 industries and 96 countries. Highly engaged organizations significantly outperform their peers in important business outcomes, including customer ratings, profitability, productivity, turnover, safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism, quality, wellbeing and organizational citizenship.
