Madrid, Spain

Madrid, Spain's capital city, is also the country's largest with about 3 million inhabitants. Of these, at least 17% are immigrants and many Spaniards are from elsewhere. This means that people in Madrid are very friendly to fellow outsiders. It's widely agreed that you can be a "madrileño" without being born in Madrid! The city is located on the river Manzanares and in the center of the country. It is well equipped for tourisim with its large number of hotels and restaurant and it is well connected to the rest of the country by road and rail. The city itself has an extremely user-friendly underground system, bus network and local trains to surrounding areas.

The nerve centre of Spain, both physically and culturally, Madrid is short of nothing; whether you're a sun seeker, a culture lover or both. What Madrid lacks in beaches and coasts it makes up for in art galleries, large open lush gardens, streets lined with Spain's best tapas bars and a city atmosphere that never dwindles no matter the time of day, week or month. Madrid's neighbourhoods, or 'barrios', are full of life and color. You probably won't find any other place in the world like Madrid, an old-hearted town with a fresh juvenile spirit, a perfect mix of liveliness and splendor. The best way to discover Madrid is to tackle it neighborhood by neighborhood, because each "barrio" boasts a different personality and history. From rocker Malasaña to touristy Puerta del Sol, from the historic Plaza Mayor to the elegance of wealthy Salamanca, Madrid holds something for all tastes and interest.

In September 2013 they moved to a new location with new offices. The Madrid corporate offices harbor many company-wide functions in both Consumer and KCP including Finance, Supply Chain, Sales, Marketing, and Human Resources. The campus has a cafeteria, kindergarden and fitness center, but there are several restaurants no more than 5 minutes away! One of the best features it has to offer is the Easylife service, or "time bank". The new offices are visually appealing, with bright colors marking each room, area and section. This creates a positive and energetic environment. It has windows that go from the ground to the ceiling, which offer natural daylight from dawn to dusk. To break down the physical barriers, they created an open space where team leaders, members, and trainees all work together. The accessibility creates a feeling of closeness and teamwork, increasing the results and engagement of the teams in their daily job.

Getting "out & about" in Madrid isn't an exception... it's a way of life! Here are the top 3 reasons that make Madrid such a wonderful place to live and work:

1) Vivacity: Bustling, energetic, vibrant... Madrid churns with energy as only a capital city could. From Puerta del Sol and the Gran Vía boulevard to Plaza de España, Malasaña, Chueca and the Real Madrid stadium, it's not sheer multitude that makes the city stir.

2) Cultural Activities: The problem with Madrid culture & arts is picking and choosing what to do! Besides the fantastic permanent collections of the Prado Museum, Reina Sofia Museum and Thyssen Bornemisza, there are dozens other museums, cultural centers, galleries, theaters, cinemas, music venues, flamenco locales, festivals...

3) Location: On the one hand, you can take day trips from Madrid to rich historical towns like Toledo, Segovia and El Escorial or enjoy nature activities in the Sierra de Guadarrama. On the other hand, Madrid's airport, train and bus stations are the best connected in Spain. No national destination is more than an 8-hour ride from here -- and low cost airlines make it even easier to move around the country.
