The prestigious Spanish magazine Actualidad Económica placed CEMEX in Spain under the "notable" category in their Best Place to Work 2010 list, where it was placed as number 34 out of the 163 companies selected as the best. This is especially important for CEMEX because it is the only construction-sector company that made the list. The issues taken into account for this ranking are talent management, retribution & compensation, work environment, social responsibility & sustainability, and employee development.

In the Dominican Republic, Mercado magazine named CEMEX one of the best companies to work for in this country due to its stellar work environment, quality of its people, and the company’s efforts to help its employees grow professionally. The magazine’s article places CEMEX as number 14 out of 50 listed companies, and declares that CEMEX strives to create a good work environment where its employees can enjoy an open, impartial, and respectful setting. They also praised CEMEX for its training programs and efforts to reinforce their employee’s strengths in order to help them advance in their professional careers.

In Latvia, CEMEX was also recently recognized during Kurzeme’s Small & Medium Enterprises’ Week 2010. Uwe Lubjuhn, Director of Latvian CEMEX Cement Operations, and Santa Klava, CEMEX Environment Manager, received this award for being the best employer of the Kurzeme region in that country.

Meanwhile, CEMEX in Poland won first prize in the Employee Retention Practices category of the 2010 People Management Awards granted by the Polish Institute of Labor and Social Studies. This was the first time CEMEX participated in the competition, marking the first time a debuting participant wins first prize. "We are glad about this award—it proves that we have been heading in the right direction and it motivates us to try even harder," declared Kamila Skorupinska, Vicepresident of Human Resources in Poland. "Most importantly," she added, "we know that our practices work well in reality and are worth the effort." Kamila led the preparation of the entry to this contest herself.

At a global level, CEMEX has a multifaceted approach to employee development. From global leadership and international management programs to scholarships and online training courses, the company fosters its employees' growth at each stage of their career. A part of this strategy is encouraging employees to take international assignments. Today, several hundred managers —at many different levels— are working outside of their home countries in order to further the individual participant's growth and facilitate the exchange of best practices and the development of CEMEX’s shared corporate culture.
