Home | Anuntis, once again, amongst the best companies to work for in Spain
One thing that makes us all so proud is when the people you work with do it to their liking. I was very pleased to receive news a few days ago, that Anuntis for the second year in a row, was listed on Best Workplaces Spain 2013, which means, Anuntis is one of the best 50 places to work for in Spain.
Anuntis’ employees have been taking part in this anonymous work environment survey over the last five years. Global satisfaction and growth have been of utmost importance: this year we have obtained an overall result of 81.7% and 91% of employees who responded say Anuntis is an excellent place to work.
Nevertheless, one of the most important aspects to this survey is employee participation, that is to say, how many people participated in the questionnaire. Out of all the companies that took part, our result is way above the average.
Sincerely speaking, it is to no surprise that our participation is so high. It is just a true reflection of what I see all around me everyday. Our results are tangible and perfomance is very high. We do work very hard in Anuntis, but we are also able to combine our personal life with our profesional life. One example of this is being able to have certain flexible working hours and clocking off at 3pm every Friday, Christmas, Easter and during the summer months, I know this is really appreciated. We have lots of social benefits too, one small detail, which is greatly appreciated, is having a day off on our birthdays so we can enjoy spending time with whoever we want.
Here in Anuntis we take pride in looking after and maintaining talent, specialised trainig programmes for technical needs are offered to every department and we support intermal promotion. Staff turnover in our company is mínimum and more than 20% of employees have been with us for more than 15 years. All of this makes Anuntis a good place to work.
This result was clearly made posible thanks to all the people who work in Anuntis. Congratulations and many thanks to each and everyone of you!
Home | Coches.net Awards 2013
On 20th of March of last month, I had the honour of sharing the second Best Motor Awards 2013 with all the brands and representatives from the official organisations in this sector, attendees and the Coches.net team.
With this second year’s edition we have actually increased in the number of user’ votes by 50% with respect to the previous year. Never before in Spain, has a media reached such a high number of participants. Acquiring 353.000 votes, one can only presume that it is due to the efficiency of Internet and the tremendous high-speed at which media is transforming internationally.
Just as I have explained in the clause, I really feel companies should adapt as quickly as possible to these changes. In Spain, such a transformation is already showing signs of a logically repercussion in the distribution of investment in Advertising. Just as Infoadex portrays, in 2012, after television, Internet media was ranked in second place, receiving the highest amount of investment in advertising. More...
Home | Social Networks and our Self-esteem
A few weeks ago, I received e-mail from Linkedin, which congratulated me on being part of the 1% of profiles most visited on the network. I then began to receive input from my colleagues and collaborators, who proudly expressed, that they too had also received a similar e-mail. Linkedin’s campaign celebrating their 200 million-user count was very interesting, indeed.
To be honest, these type of communications make me think about the effect they have on the recipient. I have come to the conclusion that they appeal to one of the most powerful and most natural feelings a person can have: the need to be accepted and liked by others. Telling us our profile is of interest to other users and go on to offer various ways of communicating this through Facebook or Twitter. A great way of creating virality! However, the most important point about all of this is that it makes us feel good and this is what gets you hooked. General speaking, apart from this initiative catching my eye from a viral marketing point of view, it has caused me to think, about what feelings are provoked when one uses social networks. More...
Home | Segundamano Vs. Milanuncios.
Of late, I have received some comments regarding the competition between Segundamano.es y Milanuncios.com after Milanuncios.com announced they are doubling the number of visits Segundamano.es acquires.
I have no absolutely no problem in admitting Milanuncios.com is doing a very good job, especially concerning some aspects.
The first point is their SEO. Milanuncios has nearly 30 million Google indexed pages, and the majority of them use the word “segunda mano” (second hand, separated). One of the most surprising things they have achieved, which is by no means easy, is their ability to trick Google searches into doing two things. More...
Home | The Presentation of “The Conviction”
A few days ago, I officially presented my book “The Conviction” in the Cultural Zone in the Corte Inglés, accompanied by Jordi Nadal, director of “Platforma Editorial". It was an informal occasion, and the perfect excuse to celebrate the publishing of my entrepreneurial story, surrounded by family, friends and colleagues.
The book’s editing process still surprises me and continues to stir up new feelings. I have to admit telling my story to the public is very rewarding but, at the same time, there is a certain amount of vulnerability. The truth is, I am actually quite a reserved person and a lot of people know a lot about my life now.
No story is ever perfect and you can learn as much from failure as you can from success. That is just the way life is. Nevertheless, the most important aspect of it all is the positive feedback you receive from readers. Just recently, one reader mentioned he was going to read the book again as he had to make a very important business decision. I get the feeling this book is turning out to be motivating for people. And this is priceless. More...
