SAS Portugal #1 on Best Companies to Work For
SAS Portugal was recognized by Great Places to Work as the 2017 Best Company to Work For in Portugal. The analytics leader was awarded the ranking among companies with fewer than 100 employees. SAS also won three Social Awards for Leadership, Health and Wellness, and Attracting Young Talent.
SAS Portugal was especially noted for promoting best practices in human capital management. These include its high quality onboarding process for new employees, continuous investment in people through local and global training, workshops, international mobility opportunities, etc., flexible working hours, and it’s open door policy, which encourages personal contact between management and team members. As one example, SAS’ new facilities in Amoreiras were designed to encourage interaction between managers and employees with the addition of open spaces and glass walls.
"These four awards point to the value and importance that SAS places on its employees and reflects the culture, vision, and environment at SAS," said Fernando Braz, Chief Executive Officer of SAS Portugal. “We have adopted these practices to help us grow and compete in a challenging market.”
With solid 15.7 percent growth last year in new licenses, SAS continues to lead the analytical market in Portugal.
