In order to ensure such quality, the Votorantim Development System (SDV, in Portuguese) develops a culture of excellence in operations, focus on results, respect for the corporate values, adopting meritocracy at all levels.
Attracting and retaining talented people involves offering opportunities for personal and professional growth to all employees, as well as remuneration and benefits policies, health and safety, and quality of life.
One of the initiatives is the Academy of Excellence, which is a kind of corporate university which helps to develop leadership and technical improvement. The Movimenta Project completes the development model, organizing the mobility of professionals within the Companies of the Group.
The Alert Movement was created to ensure a standardized communication related to safety at industrial plants. It outlines the rules that can help preventing risk exposure. It complements the Golden Rules established to highlight specific procedures and to guarantee that operations are conducted according to the most rigid safety standards.
