Human talent

Human talent

We understand that people are the core of our strategy

We recognize that people are at the center of our organization, the identity and culture, and attempting to leverage their development and their relationship to the environment.

Accordingly, we intend to enable people, based on flexibility and diversity, to fully develop their being and their potential to generate value for the company, for their stakeholders, and for society as a whole.

When we speak of human talent, we are referring to the people and their relationship to the environment, where the interaction of their skills, traits, principles, knowledge, experiences, attitudes, character, and initiatives are the skills that enable them to learn and develop in different contexts.

We understand that people whole beings, in a state of continuous development, with the ability to adapt and transform themselves and transform their environment.

“A human being is that person who can always be different”.

Training and development

People, with their talents, ideas, and behaviors, enable the company to endure over time, achieve its objectives, and contribute to society.

For our teams, we want people who question themselves, who have dialogues, and know their environment; free and autonomous human beings who are in constant development and evolution; people who go beyond their role as employees and who, based on the tools we make available to them, can raise their level of awareness to become responsible citizens.

This is why we provide forums for training and development, based on a set of competencies that leverage our purpose of creating sustainable profits and harmonious growth. Listening, conversing, emotional understanding, self-knowledge, and research are some of the competencies we are constantly trying to develop in Grupo SURA.

Inspiring leadership

We believe in a leadership that promotes open dialogues and constant listening because these are the only way to build trust-based relationships.

This leadership starts by recognizing, valuing, and understanding others and their environment, based on their diversity of thoughts, behaviors, and situations. We understand that only by understanding others as a whole we are able to drive and inspire personal and team development, increase cooperation, consistency, and trust, the trust that is based on a shared purpose.

Because we are a company with a regional reach, that promotes the ability to exert influence, dialogue, and leadership, we have a prospective and strategic of the environment and contribute to the harmonious development of the territories where we operate.
