In Bioibérica we have two company goals: achieving good business results and ensuring the wellbeing and happiness in our teams. Both are equally important and neither is a tool at the service of the other.

We are convinced that people can face major challenges and achieve excellent results if they work from their strengths. As such, we base our Human Resources philosophy on the positive psychology founded by Professor Martin Seligman, director of the Department of Psychology of University of Pennsylvania, and on the Flow theory by Professor Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, director of the Quality of Life Research Center at Claremont Graduate University in California.

Seligman affirms that improving wellbeing in organisations through positive emotions and relationships is a good corporate strategy. Additionally, Csikszentmihalyi considers that in order to achieve this goal, it is essential that the talents or skills used to meet the projects are balanced with the goal to be achieved.

And that's what we do. We try to ensure that each person in Bioibérica discovers their strong points, where they excel, in order to put them in the right place. Once every person knows and accepts their strengths, they can be used in their everyday life to face the challenges. This has helped us to foster a positive attitude which in turn leads to greater motivation and commitment as employees feel that we are being honest and we are offering a response to their professional and personal concerns.

Bioflow is the result in Bioibérica: a personal training and management programme which seeks to improve their personal strengths and positive attitude in order to contribute to the company's goal of ensuring the wellbeing and happiness of our teams.
