Social Impact & Special AchievementsThe company is improving its relationship with its workers and suppliers, in order to improve the socio-economic situation of their workers and suppliers. So far, efforts have been made to ensure that temporary workers obtain health insurance, as well as regulate their status as workers so that they do not deprive them of their labor rights. The company also provides 50 % of the transportation costs of the workers, a situation that does not occur in other companies. Within the company originated a workers organization that ensure compliance with the labor contract and improvements in the working conditions. Another important contribution of the company is that it pays its suppliers higher prices than the market provides, thus achieving a cordial and long-term relationship with suppliers.
