Life-Work Balance Highlights

Life-Work Balance Highlights

We are proud that some 90% of the employees are satisfied with their life-work balance. They say they can flexibly plan their holidays and find that the number of hours of overtime work is acceptable.
We are analyzing at a local level the existing gaps revealed by the survey and will develop solutions wherever possible.


"Living and working in such a big and busy city as São Paulo can be hectic, so we are lucky our employer gives us flexibility so that we can plan our own time, as long as we do our work, of course."

Marco Perez, Consultant, BSD Brazil
