Hello. I confess that having a decent cup of coffee before I start my working day is one of my greatest pleasures; and I am lucky to be here in Colombia, living and working in this beautiful country that welcomed me five years ago, that is known around the world as one of the best and largest producers of coffee.
Coffee is synonymous with well-being; a silent ally whose presence I feel every morning; a captivating aroma and a driving force. A sip of coffee stimulates the senses.
I honestly can’t imagine the world without coffee. Think for a second how many plans, dreams, companies, contracts,… or even how many love affairs have come together over a cup of coffee.
To be able to properly appreciate a cup of Colombian coffee, it is important to recognise the work and effort of the great many people who take great care and attention to ensure the highest quality of the final product for consumers around the world.
We too, in the Resources area of BBVA Colombia, work in the same way, as a team that focuses on service and always providing the best, so that others can do their jobs well.
Just like good coffee, we are everywhere; every morning we make it possible for thousands of computers, processes, information and links to work perfectly.
Our technological developments (the IT applications we design, develop and implement) facilitate the lives of their users (other areas and units in the bank), so they can perform their tasks more quickly and easily as well as inspiring and supporting the service actions of our clients (both the daily and regular, as well as more specific and innovative). In short, we provide convenience, proximity and well-being.
The thousand-year-old recipe for quality coffee therefore matches our work philosophy at BBVA Colombia: The secret is in doing a job with care and attention, delivering a quality product to the client, 100% coffee.
