More than 11,300 Brazilian university students heard in 2010 by international think tank Universum Global, the organizer of the Top 100 Ideal Employers survey, rated Petrobras as an "ideal employer". Since 2005, the company has been part of the "Company of the dreams of young people" ranking, prepared by Brazilian consulting firm Cia. de Talentos.
Results of surveys such as those carried out by Universum Global and Cia. de Talentos show Petrobras is a benchmark for young people, who see the company as a model employer. This recognition is the outcome of the company's policy designed to value its workforce. We believe that our employees' dedication and commitment are essencial for the results we have achieved.
That is why we make ongoing investments in personal and professional development, encourage continuous improvement through Petrobras University, and always seek to give our workforce the autonomy it needs to do its work with quality and safety.
In our relationships with employees, we comply with the Brazilian legislation and the conventions established by the International Labor Organization (ILO). We have a structured Corporate Human Resources Policy, and our Social Responsibility Policy includes the "Labor Principles" (drafted to support the eradication of child, slave and degrading labor in Petrobras' supply chain) and the "Workforce Commitment" (commit the workforce with Petrobras System's Social Responsibility Policy) in its guidelines.
The Human Resources Corporate Area, which is linked to the CEO's Office, is the executive management responsible for guiding and evaluating the company's HR management at the strategic level. It is based on nine managements, the Petrobras University being a general management.
