The objective of this measurement is to identify the 100 most attractive companies, assessing their quality of work, the employer brand and their internal reputation.

For this year's edition, the Enterprise Reputation Corporate Monitor interviewed 10 503 people, including workers from the measured companies, human resources managers and head hunters, the general population, students and business school students. In addition, it conducted a benchmarking with the indicators of human resources management of each of the companies.

This award comes at a time when the main company in Chile and the largest copper producer in the world is undergoing a transformation process, while constructing Chuquicamata Subterránea and Nuevo Nivel Mina El Teniente, projects that are incorporating cutting-edge technology in operations to extend the life of the deposits in 40 years.

The Vice President of Human Resources of Codelco, Daniel Sierra, said that in this scenario it is essential to capture the best talent available for the future of the company. "Our mines are changing, our business is no longer the same, the automated, digitised and robotised technologies that we are incorporating have the objective of impacting on better safety and productivity indexes in our operations, which also implies a challenge: we will need new competences of part of our collaborators," he assured when receiving the award in a ceremony held at the Park Center in Parque Araucano.

Daniel Sierra was explicit in emphasisng the profile of workers for mining in the 21st century, ensuring that they are "people with technical levels, ability to learn quickly and a positive attitude towards risk management, with an interest in developing permanently, be polyfunctional, interact with new technologies and willing to participate in the process transformation spaces, people who can be inserted in a more disciplined work scheme and with greater participation, commitment and involvement.
