The Bermudian-based global headquarters of family owned Bacardi Limited has been certified as a “Great Place to Work” in its first year of participation in the global workplace culture programme.

Bacardi said it was no stranger to the certification, having received recognition from Great Place to Work Certified on multiple occasions at nearly 40 sites across the globe, including operations centres and offices in the United Kingdom, United States, India, UAE, Canada, and Mexico.

The company said teams at the largest privately held spirits company in the world said that they enjoyed being part of the family oriented, fearless, and entrepreneurial-minded culture at Bacardi.

In Bermuda, the strong company culture has resulted in 91 per cent of its people seeing Bacardi as a great workplace.

A sense of empowerment and trust has allowed people to deliver on their responsibilities and feel valued for their contribution, reflected in high Trust Index scores of 92 per cent, the company said.

Bacardi people say that they are treated fairly, regardless of age, sexual orientation, or gender, and managers provide honest feedback and transparency about the company’s current and future vision and strategy.

They also cite that they feel a close bond with their teams thanks to the family atmosphere at Bacardi.

The company said these sentiments were echoed in 100 per cent of employees saying they are proud to tell others they work for Bacardi; and 97 per cent feel good about the many ways the company contributes to local communities.

Bacardi said it invested in ESG initiatives that set goals for a safer, brighter, and greener future for all, focusing on doing the right thing by its consumers, employees, business partners, the communities where it operates, and the environment.

The company said it continued to extend its actions beyond its workforce to its local communities.

This year, Bacardi partnered with the Beyond Plastic Bermuda campaign, a collaboration between the Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce and Keep Bermuda Beautiful, to educate the community about the dangers of plastic pollution and encourage actions to reduce single-use plastic on the island.

The company plans to launch the “Shake Your Future” programme in Bermuda in January, helping unemployed people to gain skills and training to secure jobs in the hospitality industry as bartenders.

Douglas Mello, managing director of Bacardi in Bermuda, said: “Bacardi is a truly dynamic, innovative, and fun place to work, and I am proud of the results and feedback we’ve received from our people.

“The high engagement scores, positive sentiment, and appreciation for our efforts to cultivate a culture of belonging and community care are an incredible achievement.

“The ‘Great Place to Work’ certification is positive reflection of our efforts to value our teams in Bermuda.”

Great Place to Work said it was the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, the organisation has surveyed more than 100 million employees around the world and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust.

Great Place to Work helps organisations quantify their culture and produce better business results by creating a high-trust work experience for all employees.

Their benchmark data is used to recognise Great Place to Work-Certified companies and the Best Workplaces in the United States and more than 60 countries, including the 100 Best Companies to Work For and World’s Best list published annually in Fortune.
