What is your job?
Ermerson Alencar dos Santos: My job is to do quality control on the Comfort 2 and Comfort 3® shavers produced. I hunt down imperfections. I worked at ﬁ ve other companies before I joined bIC, so I can tell what’s diﬀ erent about it. I’ve been in my position here at bIC for three and a half years and there’s room to move up from here. My friends told me that about this place and it turns out they were right! I quickly noticed the quality of the management approach since the sa 8000 standard on corporate responsibility has been deployed; it helps optimize working conditions. working here means respect and
beneﬁ ts; that’s really motivating. In 2011, I got to take part in several trainings to boost my knowledge of the ﬁ eld.
tell us about Manaus and about your life outside of Bic.
E. A. S: I was born here. I have my friends from when I was a kid, but then I’ve also made friends at bIC. the city is very welcoming; we hope to host the world Cup in soccer. we’re one of the 12 cities in brazil that have been selected. I’m a big fan. I’m involved in associations and I do some theatre as well as some dance.
