Ana, Director of Human Resources in Brazil, joined Zoetis in 2013 when the company was separating from Pfizer. A defining moment in her career, Ana and her team built, in a short amount of time, an independent human resources function for Zoetis in Brazil. Since then, she has helped drive other big projects including hiring and onboarding efforts and a new talent program in Brazil.
We Are One Zoetis
As an HR business partner, Ana's responsibilities encompass a range of HR specialties. On any given day she might find herself working on colleague engagement, talent acquisition and management, workforce and compensation planning, performance management, diversity, or employee relations. Ana is dedicated to working closely with everyone—colleagues, managers, and leadership—to help Zoetis meet business goals in Brazil.
Colleagues recognize Ana's dedication. Olívia, Corporate Communications Analyst at Zoetis, works with Ana in Brazil on internal communications. Olivia said, "Ana makes an effort to get to know all colleagues and their strengths. I am lucky because she is my mentor, and she helps focus on where I can make a difference for the company. She is a good example of someone who embodies the Zoetis Core Beliefs, especially being Customer Obsessed and driving toward One Zoetis."
Proud to Work for Zoetis
Ana says she is proud to work for Zoetis. "I was very fortunate to be hired when we were just starting as an independent company. I was part of it since its first steps, and having the opportunity to build a team, strategies, and procedures from the start was a highlight of my career," she says. "Now, I’m motivated by our innovations and authentic concern for animal welfare. I don't think I have experienced such a powerful combination anywhere else."
