The sustainable development of our planet is a necessity. The sustainable development of the areas where we operate is our purpose. The wellbeing of our collaborators determines our performance. For all these reasons we have decided to build and present our commitments.

Resourcing the regions where we operate by:

  • Building new models for relations and value creation with our stakeholders.
  • Employing locally based teams and sustaining local development
  • Offering and continuing competitive outsourcing services crucial to health and development of the business we serve.

Resourcing our people and those of our clients by:

  • Ensuring a healthy and safe working environment.
  • Encouraging the training, professional development and commitment of each employee and the continuous improvement of our operations.
  • Guaranteeing respect for diversity and human and fundamental social rights.
