Moments of dialogue
We believe that transparent and honest communication is the success of teamwork.
Moments of dialogue is a space to listen to the voices of our people. Each supervisor meets once a week with members of his team to openly discuss issues relevant to the workplace. Records are taken to ensure proper follow-up to the agreements reached. It promotes two-way communication that enables opportunities for improvement and recognizes the effort of the teams. Dialogues include topics related to industrial health and safety, performance evaluations, feedback, among others.
