Our team

GlassecViracon stands out for the quality of its products and services. It is a leading architectural glass processing company in the Brazilian market.
Our brand brings the fingerprints of a team of experts committed to what they do. Our employees are technicians who strive to maintain a friendly workplace environment where professional challenge encourages learning and growth.

Programs

Safety, health, quality of life, professional training and compliance rules are topics of our employee-focused programs that we develop on a regular basis as part of our corporate culture.

This has been a constant worry at our company, which takes a series of preventive actions to reach the goal of becoming an “accident-free” company. In addition to the events provided for in the law, such as the Sipat – Internal Occupational Accident Prevention Week, we held the 5 Minutes of Safety, a weekly action in which the industrial sectors meet with those responsible for the area or their managers in order to align general safety matters, such as the correct use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). We also promote Safety Kaizens and periodic training on unsafe acts, hand protection, among other activities.
We carry out health promotion and quality of life actions every year, with activities to assess blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, BMI calculation, visual acuity, among others.
Our employees’ technical qualification is always considered and discussed, as we have a strong commitment to innovation and technology update to keep us at the forefront of architectural glass production. The Lean Manufacturing Training Program is inspired by this premise, with ongoing training on continuous improvement aimed at employees from all sectors, with a strong impact on their daily lives and the company results.
This initiative for technical training of our employees is carried out every year at the basic, intermediate or advanced level, or in refresher modules. In 2016, the Glass School received the Agruparh Award for Good Practices in People Management, in the Training and Development category.
Our training programs in this field are carried out in two areas: qualification of new leaders, focused on the production sectors, and in the updating of the leaders of the administrative and management areas. The activities are promoted both internally and in partnership with external entities, such as the Brazilian Leaders Institute.
Our program provides training, monitoring, auditing and other mechanisms to enforce the law, as well as compliance by our employees with the Code of Ethics and Conduct and the policies of the Apogee Group, to which we belong. Additionally, we have a channel for reporting fraud or other wrongdoing by employees through a toll-free number, which ensures anonymous reporting.
We offer benefits that value the well-being of our employees and their families, such as family health insurance plan, dental plan, food, meal, and day care allowance.
In order to keep our employees informed about strategic actions, training and events, we periodically update our bulletin boards with notices, goals and other indicators, which are put in places that can be accessed by all. We also have email announcements and photo exhibitions with works from our portfolio in the cafeteria, among other means to maintain an open dialogue with the different areas of the organization. Those initiatives include Bom Papo GV [GV Good Talk], a bimonthly newsletter that brings relevant news about programs and events, presents employee profiles, promotes contests, offers health and safety tips, among other topics of interest.

Community

GlassecViracon has been seeking to expand its presence in the community by conducting professional training courses for residents of the Nazaré Paulista region, where its factory is located. The GV Capacita Project [GV Qualification Program] is divided into modules on Production Planning and Control, Occupational Safety, Logistics, Quality and Lean Manufacturing, among other topics.
