At award-winning Tijuana factory, plant offers more than just a job


One of 31 couples who married Feb. 14, 2014, at a mass wedding at the Plantronics factory in Tijuana, Mexico, pose as they receive a certificate. The factory has been named the best workplace in Mexico for three years running. Just 400 yards from the US border, its air-conditioned factory floor has natural light filtering in through the louvered roof. Employees, during breaks, congregate around pingpong and foosball tables. Not long ago, Baja California Symphony members set up chairs at the factory and played classical music at the end of one shift. A dance troupe, opera singers, a mime, and mariachis have also regaled workers. If more employers were like this the world would be a much better place. What do you think?
