Motivating Human Capital is key to success

Motivating Human Capital is key to success

As a business leader, it is important to assume the working motivation, in order to obtain a task force and also to achieve a positive impact on their work activities; this, reflected in the good results of the company as in the case of Inproceca whose product quality has crossed over borders, as is the case of Chile and the installation of the Inmolisa plant.

Human Growth

Inproceca operates in a work environment where freedom and flow of communication predominate; here we establish periodical meetings with staff in order to meet the needs of the different work areas, where experiences, problems and knowledge are shared and directed towards personal, professional and business growth.

Keeping this scheme encourages staff to participate in policy-making, always taking into account their voices, listening to their opinions and decisions into consideration.

The expansion of Human Capital is transcendental for any organization, by creating work rotation programs in order to get employees to become familiarized with all areas of this organization and, towards the promotion of professional and personal development.

Equally important, salary incentives and valuing their functions according to their wages is inherent; human talent should feel pleasant within the company. Also, there must be room for professional growth and achievements in their personal lives.

The Grupo Libi / Libi Group invests in its Human Capital by the recognition of its employees as the primary basis of the company; through the implementation of workshops of coexistence and integration with all the leaders of the Inproceca Group, in there they worked to change perceptions and recharge energies unto working motivation.

In addition, the team also enjoyed the motivational speech “Reborn” by Anna Vacarella and the dissertation by Atilio Romero about (todo lo bueno que tenemos para dar)  “All the good things we have to share.”

Growing beyond borders

Motivating Human Capital and supporting them in all their processes to achieve the highest quality standards we meet with Mauro Libi Crestani, who continues to activate his outreach towards other frontiers, specifically with Chile and the Inmolisa Company in oats production.

This plant provides raw material, and is also responsible for bringing the crop sowed by the grain farmers (the seed of the oats.) By these means the local market get supplied and Avelina manages to reach all Venezuelan homes, as well as, to exporting to the US and Colombian territories, meeting all production quotas.
