TALA has been recognized for the January 2024-January 2025 year as a Great Place to Work®, an internationally respected workplace culture authority.

TALA President and CEO Diana Martinez said, “Being recognized with the Great Place to Work (GPTW) certification is an honor. The team at TALA is the backbone of this organization, being certified as a great place to work means TALA employees feel working at TALA is a positive and enriching experience. This is the fourth certification in a row that TALA has received from GPTW. TALA places a high importance on culture and is appreciative of this recognition.”

Great Place to Work Certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience. Great Place to Work aims to understand what it is really like to work at a company and what employees really say about their experience. Because employee feedback and independent analysis determine the scores, certification recognizes which companies genuinely offer a great company culture. The best employers attract and retain top performers by obsessing over the employee experience.
