NII Holdings Ranked 15th On The List Of Top 25 Multinationals Best Places To Work In Latin America

RESTON, Va., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  NII Holdings Inc., [NASDAQ: NIHD], a differentiated provider of mobile communication services operating under the Nextel brand in Latin America, announced today it has been named one of the best places to work among multinationals in Latin America by the Great Place to Work® Institute (GPTW). The list of the top 25 multinational companies, based on 11 national Best Workplaces studies in Latin America, was announced on March 27 in Atlanta.



"NII Holdings' inclusion on this list validates our efforts to create an invigorating work environment for our employees focusing on engagement, retention and motivation," said Steve Dussek, chief executive officer of NII Holdings. "We are proud of our 15,000 plus employees throughout headquarters and in our markets for their dedication and commitment to making NII Holdings a great place to work. Without our driven and talented employees, NII would have never been able to achieve this great company milestone."

NII Holdings ranked 15th in this survey which included companies with operations in at least three countries, at least 1,000 employees globally and 40 percent of its global workforce working outside the home country. The rankings are based on 11 national Best Workplaces studies in Latin America, resulting in the largest study of workplace practices of its kind. To prepare this global ranking Great Place to Work® also assessed the local results of employee satisfaction surveys and the results of audits analyzing the companies' HR policies and practices.

This is NII Holdings' first appearance on the Top 25 Best Places to Work among Multinationals in Latin America ranking. This recognition confirms the company's already strong reputation for implementing leading workplace practices in Latin America. The company has also been named a top place to work in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru in 2011 by the Great Place to Work® Institute and several other premier workplace organizations and media outlets.

"This ranking confirms that NII Holdings is dedicated to fostering employee engagement and serving the Latin American community," said Alfonso Martinez, executive vice president of human resources at NII Holdings. "As we continue residing and serving in Latin America, we will also continue to grow and guide our Latin American workforce through continual motivation and collaboration. Once again I would like to thank our employees for their hard work to grow the business and for creating a unique culture throughout Nextel in Latin America."
