Premio Ardan

Since 1995, the Consorcio de la Zona Franca de Vigo (“Vigo Free-Trade Zone Consortium”), has been developing indicators of Good Business Practices through its ARDÁN Business Information Service. This line of work is developed under the auspices of the ARDÁN Chair at the University of Vigo, aiming to identify business excellence in Galicia.

Each of the ARDÁN indicators measure the performance of companies in factors related to the ability to compete. The ARDÁN Indicator is obtained by those companies that exceed the restrictive values required in the ratios or in the synthetic indices used for the measurement. These companies demonstrate differential skills in generating competitive advantages, which makes them benchmarks in the Galician economy.

Getting an ARDÁN indicator is certainly not easy. Of the 33,750 companies analysed, only 4.81% have achieved 1 or more ARDÁN indicators.

CITIC CENSA is placed in in sixth position in the ranking of Galician companies analysed concerning the Talent Management indicator. We are particularly proud of this recognition that motivates us to generate the best possible performance.
