COMMITMENT TO TALENT
Prosegur is convinced that the proper management of the talent and the individual success of its employees are essential conditions for ensuring value generation and the attainment of the global goals of the organization.
During the year 2018, Prosegur has implemented a new Talent Plan to help boost a culture of two-way communication, meritocracy and the way in which talent is encouraged. The Plan is structured into several aspects that help to complete the integral development of employees and their experience in the organization.
