Millicom (TIGO) rises to 2nd place in the Great Place to Work

 Millicom, a leading provider of fixed and mobile telecommunications services in Latin America through its TIGO brand, was once again named in the Top Workplaces in Latin America across all industries, obtaining 2nd place in the 2022 Great Place to Work ranking. With more than 20,000 employees in the region, this marks TIGO’s fourth year on a Great Place to Work’s roster of leading workplaces.  

“Thanks to our Tigo People and their commitment to being a workplace that values diversity, equity, and inclusion, we can advance our purpose of bridging the digital gap while creating a work environment where can all thrive,” said Mauricio Ramos, CEO of Millicom (Tigo). “I’m proud of our team for being named a top Latin American company to work for which is a testament of our Sangre Tigo.”

Each year the prestigious Great Place to Work Survey recognizes the 25 top multinational companies in Latin America. The ranking is based on anonymous and rigorous employee surveys, which analyze responses to key elements such as respect, camaraderie, fairness, trust, and pride in belonging to the organization. In Latin America, the Best Workplaces stand out by creating a safe environment, providing two-way communication with leadership, and a genuine sense of caring among colleagues. When companies focus on creating safe and encouraging workplaces, employees, in return, give the very best they can.
