Skill Development

Brisa invests in its employees' effectiveness and know-how update by offering continuous training and well-planned knowledge management.

The purpose is to promote the skills and motivations and, at the same time, boost a healthy and fulfilling work environment.

Performance management system

Brisa has developed a performance management system where employee skills and contributions are evaluated on a yearly basis. This system aims to ensure the active participation of all employees in value creation as team members.

 

A top down, team to individual, objectives definition has been adopted. Depending on the results, the company grants extraordinary promotions and/or bonuses, ensuring that employees are rewarded by their results and dedication.

Professional and personal life balance

One of the goals at Brisa is the promotion of the right balance between personal life and professional life for employees. Measures have been taken that allow employees to attend to their personal needs without harming their professional careers. 

Several measures have been taken, and we highlight the following:

  • Flexible timetables – Allow the employee to adjust his work schedule to his personal needs, within certain limits;
  • Employee shift exchange – On continuous work it is possible to exchange shifts with other employees;
  • Variable Days Off – In some work timetables there are variable date days off which can be scheduled according to the employee's needs, whenever possible;
  • Partial vacation -  If the employee is interested, he/she may divide the vacation schedule in several periods;
  • Family assistance – For situations not covered by Social Security, Brisa provides a yearly payment of up to 15 days for emergency family assistance;    

Family events


The Brisa Group also wants to foster a closer better relationship between its employees and the company by promoting family events. The result is a more dynamic and motivating work environment.

Highlights of family events:
       
  • Brisa Holiday Camp – Brisa's contribution depends on the employees' paycheck and the value of contribution is higher for lower salaries;
  • Christmas Parties – Social events that aim to foster a closer connection between personal life and professional life;
  • Christmas Gifts – Brisa offers Christmas gifts to employees' children up to the age of 12;
  • Christmas with Brisinha – An event that took place in 2015 for employees' children with ages between 6 and 12 years old. The purpose was to bring children closer to their parents' professional life;
