Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsGuayakí is working to make organic, fair-trade yerba mate the mainstream energy source of choice and prove that a company can be profitable while operating sustainably. They started in 1996 with the aim of protecting and restoring the South American rainforests and empowering the indigenous people that live there. Guayaki’s vision, which was formally announced at their semi-annual company gathering in summer 2015, holds that the power of yerba mate culture regenerates ecosystems and creates vibrant communities. Guayakí is committed to the highest standards in their labor policies. They are an equal opportunity employer, and employment decisions are based on merit, qualifications, and ability. They also seek employees who are genuinely passionate about their mission, fit their culture, and share their organization’s core values. Guayakí offers a full range of benefits to Cebadors, highlighted by generous policies including 100 % health insurance coverage, flexible working hours, paid time off, and the ability for new parents to bring their infants to work.
