On 10 November, we received the SME of the Year Award in La Rioja at the awards ceremony organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Banco Santander in collaboration with Diario La Rioja to give visibility to the daily efforts of entrepreneurs and their contribution to the economic development of our region.
In addition, we have received a special mention, a runner-up prize for the training and employment career of the IT talent. This award was collected by the founder and president of Bosonit, Miguel Fernández Morales, and María Díez Arnáiz, responsible for Culture.
Miguel Fernández has reflected on the SME 2020 award in La Rioja: "Receiving this award reflects the strengths that have led Bosonit to grow to the 250 people we are today. In addition to the award for best SME, today we have also been recognised for our training and employability, in other words: the people. The differential point for which we are the company we are today. After five years of existence, receiving this award is not only for our trajectory, but also for the people who make up Bosonit".
María Díez, Head of Culture, shared our trajectory and values:
Bosonit was born 5 years ago with the vocation of helping companies to extract value from an asset that is common today, data. However, our value process has always gone in two directions, one towards the client and the other, key, towards our employees. Their value is our value, because Bosonit is people.
The growth of which Miguel spoke, and which today places us as a reference in La Rioja, would not have been possible without the four pillars that form the backbone of our company: talent, meritocracy, innovation and work.
We are especially proud to emphasise and highlight the talent that exists in our land, La Rioja. In this way, we give young people from our region the opportunity to have access to high-level projects, without having to leave. This has even led us to repatriate to our land people who never wanted to leave.
Bosonit is what it is thanks to the talent of the people who make up the entire organisation, the enormous hard work that has been behind all these years, with values that are shared from the first to the last of our consultants. For all of them, this is today's recognition.
