SUSE®, the world’s largest independent open source company, is recognized with the certification Great Place to Work® (GPTW) in Brazil. The certification, conducted by the global consultancy, was awarded based on an online survey that measured employee perception of the company. This achievement was an honor for SUSE Brazil, which participated in the survey for the first time and scored 84 points out of 100.

Employees cited being proud to work at SUSE and part of an engaged team as two of the main aspects that contributed to obtaining this certification. The culture of an “open, open source” company, with a truly open philosophy, a flexible work environment, autonomy and a very close proximity to employees, are reflected by the excellent perception of our internal community members, who are passionate about the company and its solutions.

Respect for employees, regardless of their gender, as well as the availability of new equipment and resources also received the highest points from employees.

2019 was a milestone year for SUSE. The company became independent in March and appointed Melissa Di Donato as CEO in July.  As a result, there have been new strategic initiatives introduced to the organization as well as the introduction of two mentoring programs, a global volunteer program and three new employee networks, Women in Technology, Pride at SUSE and #GoGreen sustainability initiative, an inclusive network of employees who promote, collaborate, and execute on pro-environment ideas and sustainability initiatives across SUSE.

The achievement of the GPTW comes at an opportune time for SUSE Brazil, which has been in a new office since late 2019. The redesigned modern office offers comfortable space and an environment that represents the company’s innovative identity.

“We are honored to receive the Great Place to Work digital certification, as this demonstrates the engagement and passion of our team who is committed to maintaining momentum in 2020,” said Cristiana Maranhão, president of SUSE for Latin America.
