Sociedade Transformadora de Alumínios, SA - STA
STA is about people and what drives them. People are the most important asset in any organisation. People matter. We are all human and we aim to live a better life, for ourselves, our family, friends, colleagues, and customers. This is at the heart and soul of everything we do. We work to have a better life. To this end, we create enthusiastic engagement with innovative and continuously improving people and process management. STA is a safe and secure workplace, with everyone empowered and energised – being part of a special, caring family.
But we're a lot more than that. We believe that the key to a better life is in our hands but is not always easy. We believe that working together, however, makes it easier to take care of each other. We are agile – in our job and in our lives. Working together motivates us to work harder, smarter, more creative, safer, more efficient, and more knowledgeable. Our dedication to this has no boundaries.
“Who doesn't want to know that we notice them and value them? And who might respond to us better when they feel that they matter? It probably cannot be overstated – it matters...that people matter.”
This common goal is the reason why every STAan gets up in the morning, has a cup of coffee, greet their loved ones, and confronts rush-hour traffic to get to work. Where we face the same noise and heat generated by more or less the same machines as everyone else in this industry. Because we care. We care about ourselves, our families, and our colleagues. We care about you, our valued customer, and your product. We go the extra mile. We continuously improve the quality of your product, the efficiency of our processes, the reduction of waste, and increase our safety and wellbeing. So that you and your customers have a better life too.
- We work hard and smart to get noticed.
- We work together.
- We speak without fear, openly and with humour. We are transparent.
- We are honest, fair and respectful.
- We do the right thing for the right reason at the right time. Every time.
- We bounce back and persevere.
“To add value to others, one must first value others.”
John C. Maxwell
