The Gerdau Group believes that the transformation of a company can only be achieved with the transformation of people.
Human resources management plays a crucial role in this continuous updating process, which is fundamental for the continued success of the company. It encourages the development of new behaviors and attitudes, skills and improved performances and results. It provides incentive for entrepreneurial attitudes that take us to higher performance levels. It promotes motivation by setting challenges, continuous training and the identification with Gerdau values. After all, these attitudes are essential for the training of professionals that add value to our business.
In 2003, human resources management sought to further improve the competencies of our officers through human resources management practices. Oriented toward the aspirations of the Gerdau Group in relation to the global market and with the objective of consolidating a team of professionals who are specialized in steelmaking, our management practices include social responsibility as one of the competencies in order to add value to the attitudes of our officers in the communities where they work.
Expanding employee satisfaction rates – which have increased in our regular opinion surveys – reveal a positive and dynamic work environment that is constantly under improvement.
