SAS Portugal recognized as the “Best Company to Work for young people"

The company placed #10 overall among “Best Places to Work in Portugal 2014”

Since 2004, SAS has consistently been recognized as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Portugal ,  achieving the top 10 every year since 2012. In addition to ranking #10 overall this year, SAS Portugal ranked No.5 in the Best Company to Work in the IT category.

This was also the first time SAS Portugal received the special recognition, “Best Company to Work for for young people,” from the Great Place to Work Institute. This recognition is an important accomplishment for SAS as an employer, as it will help the company continue to recruit the best students from the country's top Universities.

Best practices that earned this award for SAS include strong partnerships the company has been developing with local universities, a smooth recruitment process, and effective orientation and training programs, as well as high satisfaction levels expressed by new SAS employees

New recruits - especially young people, particularly value the SAS culture, brand, and work environment. They feel that the company trusts them. “At SAS, we can develop our technical and business skills, which helps us feel that that we can make a difference!” said Gonçalo Cunha, Associate Consultant at SAS.

According to Alexandre Branco, Iberian Finance Director for SAS, “Beyond the orientation program and the positive work environment, one of the main accelerators of motivation is the fact that employees know that SAS allows them to continue their knowledge acquisition process, which is complemented by individual career plans. This not only adds value for individual contributors, but for SAS as well.”
