Our People work together and actively participate in initiatives to attract talent, promote well-being and a safe,  diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment.

Quality of Life Program

We want what's best for you!

Through our Quality of Life Program, we encourage our employees to achieve a balance between work and personal life, which includes benefits to promote health and well-being. The program is structured around three pillars:


Physical health

This includes health, dental, and life insurance; meal and food vouchers; telemedicine, with 24/7 medical support, including remote care and monitoring during the COVID-19 pandemic, when there was also mass testing; monitoring of risk groups; working conditions aligned with ergonomic requirements; workplace exercises; and financial support for physical activities through Gympass.

Mental health

This pillar includes initiatives such as Psicologia Viva, which offers online psychological consultations; campaigns and internal communication to share up-to-date information on the pandemic; and the Employee Assistance Program (PAE), offering psychological, legal, and financial support.


This includes recommendations for social distancing; financial support and guidance for virtual work; extension of maternity leave (180 days) and paternity leave (20 days); flexible and mobile working hours for employees at the Rio de Janeiro headquarters; birthdays off; and daycare/babysitting allowances.

Inclusive Port

We value the plurality of ideas and are committed to building and maintaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment. Our Diversity and Inclusion Agenda involves actions geared toward our internal audience and fostering an inclusive culture throughout the port community.

We promote educational and literacy actions among our employees and partners and, based on a diagnosis of the teams’ profile, in 2022 we set corporate targets to increase the representation of women and Black people in our TIMAÇU team.

Through the Inclusive Port Program, we work together with the other companies in the port complex to make Port of Açu a benchmark for diversity and inclusion, promoting positive socio-economic impacts by generating employment, income, and providing professional training. The purpose of the initiative is to intensify synergies between the companies and it includes literacy and awareness-raising actions, a diagnosis of the port community, and integrated projects.

As part of our effort to expand gender diversity in Port of Açu’s operations, in partnership with Brasil Port and Dome, we launched a program called PORTODAS aiming to attract and train women from the region to work at Port of Açu.
