    Forbes magazine, in partnership with the consulting firm Statista, presented this year’s list of 750 companies recognized as the best employers in the world. Sura was ranked 483 and was the only Colombian company on the list, as well as the only Latin American insurance company.

    ‘This recognition motivates us to continue working for our human talent, the more than 22,000 people who give life to Sura every day. In the face of these times of transformations, we have valued the ability to learn, the power of conversation and understanding socio-familial contexts to implement practices that allow us to continue weaving trust and contribute to the achievement of personal purposes, and thus enhance organizational purposes, ‘said Luz Marina Velasquez, vice president of human talent at Sura Colombia.

    The ranking included companies from 36 different sectors representing 45 countries. It should be mentioned that 16 companies of Latin American origin made part of the list this time.

    To select companies, Statista surveyed more than 160,000 workers from 58 different countries. All surveys were anonymous, and companies were evaluated in areas such as gender equity, talent development, social responsibility and responsiveness to the pandemic.

    So far this year, Sura has maintained 100% of jobs and created more than 2,000 new jobs, of which 1,700 have been aimed at strengthening health care in Colombia.
