It fills us with pride and joy to announce that UWC Costa Rica has obtained the prestigious Great Place to Work certification. We are the only educational institution in the country to achieve this important recognition in 2024. This achievement is a testament to our community's commitment and validates the values and principles that guide every aspect of our daily work.

A Recognition of Collective Effort

Great Place to Work certification is much more than a badge of honor; it represents an ongoing commitment to the well-being and development of our staff. Through rigorous evaluations and candid feedback, we have demonstrated that UWC Costa Rica is a place where each individual is valued and respected; we work with camaraderie and in a fair environment that results in a big pride of being part of an innovative educational model that cultivate in young people the passion and ability to serve humanity and our planet–learning from nature and from each other for a lifetime.

Benefits for Our Staff

Being recognized as a Great Place to Work brings with it a number of significant benefits for our team. Here, we highlight some of the most important ones:

  1. Positive Work Environment: Certification reflects an environment where collaboration, creativity, and innovation are encouraged. This not only improves job satisfaction but also boosts staff productivity and performance.
  2. Culture of Inclusion and Diversity: Our certification also recognizes our dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We celebrate and value the diverse perspectives and experiences each team member brings to the table, creating an environment where everyone feels valued and respected.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at UWC Costa Rica

One of the fundamental pillars of UWC Costa Rica is our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We believe that a diverse and multicultural community enriches our educational environment and prepares our students and staff to navigate and lead in a globalized world.

  • Multiculturalism: Our staff comes from diverse cultural and national backgrounds, reflecting the richness of perspectives we seek to instill in our students. This cultural diversity is a source of constant learning and growth for everyone in our community.
  • Equity: We strive to maintain equitable relationships at all college levels. From our hiring policies to daily practices, we promote equity and fairness, ensuring every staff member can access the same opportunities and resources.
  • Inclusion: We foster an inclusive environment where every voice is heard and valued. We firmly believe that inclusion is not just a goal but a daily practice that enriches our community and strengthens our commitment to learning and collaboration.

A Commitment to the Future

The Great Place to Work certification recognizes our present and motivates our future. At UWC Costa Rica, we will continue to work hard to maintain and improve the standards that have made us an exceptional workplace. We are committed to cultivating a community where individuals can develop professionally and personally.

We thank each staff member for their dedication, passion, and continuous effort. This achievement belongs to all of us, and together, we will continue to build a UWC Costa Rica where every day is an opportunity to learn, grow, and serve.
