EXAME Magazine publishes 100 Best Companies to Work For list
Zoetis is proud to be recognized as a “Best Company to Work For” in Portugal by EXAME, a leading business publication. The magazine, in cooperation with AESE Business School and Everis Consultants, published the first “Best Companies to Work For” list in Portugal in 18 years. Zoetis was the only animal health company to be listed in the ranking.
Companies were selected based on feedback from a survey, a site visit from EXAME journalists, and face-to-face interviews where colleagues shared their perspectives on the company’s commitment to work-life- balance, social responsibility, and opportunities for development, among others.
Zoetis colleagues cited delivering added value to customers, making life easier for veterinarians, bringing happiness to pet owners, and increasing farmers’ profitability as key topics that brought them satisfaction. Career development and a strong commitment to social responsibility were also listed as important areas.
“Zoetis Portugal invests in team cohesion and spirit, along with building a great environment at work. This is appreciated by all colleagues,” EXAME commented.
“We are honored to receive this recognition. We push each other each day to be the best so that we can deliver results and develop animal health in Portugal,” said Mário Hilário, General Manager, Zoetis Portugal. “Our pillars are team spirit, resilience and KISS, an acronym for a strategic way of thinking that has been implemented in the Southern Europe Cluster: KI -Keep in: what should we maintain because it’s building results? What should we stop doing because it shows no results? And what should we start doing new in order to provide results? Because each one of us drives these every day that translates into our growth as professionals and as a great team that works as One Zoetis. I am sure this recognition is an extra motivation to consolidate our expectations to outperform the market in 2018.”
