Our strong commitment to a workplace culture where colleagues feel supported, work together, and are empowered to balance their work and home lives, has led to additional recognition of Zoetis teams in Canada, Italy and Turkey by the Great Place to Work™ (GPTW) organization. GPTW honors companies for their attention to organizational culture and work environment. The certification is determined by comparing employee's opinions through a Trust Index Survey with managers' views through a Culture Audit Report. These awards demonstrate that even in this period of great complexity, Zoetis remains committed to its colleagues and customers to continue ensuring the welfare of animals and those who care for them.
Zoetis Named a Best Workplace™ for Mental Wellness and Best Workplace™ for Women in Canada
Zoetis was certified as a Great Place to Work last year in Canada. Building on that recognition, the team was recently certified on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces for Mental Wellness and Best Workplaces for Women. The Mental Wellness award is based on a survey wherein colleagues must agree that at least 80% of the workforce is psychologically and emotionally healthy. As a Best Workplace for Women, the team was recognized for a culture where all colleagues feel safe and are treated fairly, regardless of their gender. Additionally, there are programs and practices that promote the advancement of female colleagues.
“The leadership team and I are honored to share these recognitions with all of you as a testament to the supportive culture we have established in Canada," said Jair Garcia, Senior Vice President, Canada and Latin America (excluding Brazil).
Zoetis Climbs the Ranks of GPTW in Italy as a Best Workplace™
The team in Italy also built on their 2019 GPTW certification. This year, Zoetis Italy was recognized on the organization's prestigious Best Workplace list. Even in the face of the COVID-19 crisis that impacted Italy tremendously, Zoetis continued to deliver solutions. The team launched the “Zoetis Learning Academy," a distance learning initiative dedicated to veterinarians for continuous education.
“This recognition is a testament to our passion and constant commitment to our customers and our colleagues," said Carmelo Lombardo, General Manager, Zoetis Italy. “Our colleagues make the difference. We are a close-knit team and we do our jobs with passion and pride. We are made up of people who respect and support one another, and that is apparent especially in a complex period such as COVID-19."
Zoetis Turkey Advances to the Best Workplace List
Zoetis Turkey also joined a new ranking as a Best Workplace during the same year they were certified by GPTW. When asked about why they were selected for the list, the answer was clear: our colleagues make the difference!
“At Zoetis, we always focus on people. We have created an environment where our colleagues feel safe and empowered. The most fundamental factor that has driven our success to be ranked as a Best Workplace in Turkey is down to our colleagues who keep our values alive by living our Core Beliefs each day. Additionally, we offer opportunities for self-development and learning. This has raised leaders in the industry in Turkey and around the world," said Hakan Eras, General Manager & Regional Director - Middle East and Turkey Region.
