PROFESSIONALS

We consider it essential to manage our professionals efficiently, since we consider our team to be our most important asset.

We are committed to a professional model which prioritizes ongoing training and objective-based evaluation for all our staff. Within this model we have created a very participatory organizational environment whereby we aim to provide all professionals with the greatest possible decision-making autonomy. Another distinguishing feature is the interaction and transfer of knowledge between people, always under a long-term strategic vision, in which efficiency criteria gain paramount importance, and with the clear objective of maximizing the contribution of professionals to the organization.
