Lockton Recognized as Socially Responsible Corporate Citizen and Great Place to Work

Lockton Mexico earns two prestigious awards

(Mexico City, MX) – 14 April 2014 – Lockton has earned the Socially Responsible Company Award 2014 from Mexico’s Philanthropy Center and the Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility. The award ceremony took place on April 8, 2014 in the Camino Real Hotel in Mexico City. Marcela Flores, CEO, Veronica Amaro, Human Resources Manager, and Edna Perea, Legal Assistant, represented Lockton at the event.

Each year, the organizations recognize companies that demonstrate excellence in strategic giving and volunteerism. The evaluation committee assesses each company on five factors: community, environment, ethics, employees and work relations, and social responsibility strategy.

Lockton Mexico formed a Social Responsibility Committee four years ago to focus on creating opportunities for Lockton to give back to its community. Lockton supports a variety of organizations including the Federico Gómez Children’s Hospital, Talita Cumi, a home for abandoned and abused children, and CAM Atizapan, an elementary school for children with disabilities.

Also on April 8, 2014, the Great Place to Work Institute honored Lockton as Great Place to Work® for the fourth year running. Jorge de la Fuente, Human Capital Director, and Veronica Amaro, Human Resources Manager, attended the award ceremony in Bancomer Center in Mexico City.

The award is based on the combined results of two assessments. Lockton Associates participated in an anonymous survey evaluating the employee experience. Lockton also underwent a Culture Audit®, a process that assesses a company on these criteria: pride, camaraderie, respect, credibility and impartiality.

Lockton CEO Marcela Flores said she is thrilled that Associates are happy with the culture at Lockton and value the importance of philanthropy.

“Here at Lockton, we focus on creating an environment where our Associates feel empowered to grow and learn as individuals as well as give back to their communities,” said Flores. “I am honored and proud to receive these awards recognizing our efforts.”
