Our People

The statement “Human Resources are a key factor for success in business” is no longer a theoretical paradigm. A company's success depends not only on management capability but also on the investment made in its people and in the innovative capacity that they bring to the business. This practice must be a guiding principle for companies. Indeed, it is the only way forward if they are to make their mark in the future.

Our Concession Group's team is made up mostly of young people, all of them highly motivated. The aim is to invest in the career development and retention of our people as a valuable asset for the Organisation by maintaining close contact with them and keeping abreast of their performance and skills.

This approach led to Ascendi obtaining internal and external recognition by winning an award at the Masters of Human Capital initiative and inclusion in the magazine Exame's ranking of the Best 100 Companies to Work for in Portugal
