Recruitment and selection
Minerva Foods uses a competency-based management model when admitting workers during the recruitment and selection process- es. A comparative analysis is also done between the positions and place of origin of the workers, so as to allow for workers to be located in their native communities in some cases.
 e admissions process includes an institution- al video and Distance Learning (DL), as well as receipt of an Employee Manual and the Code of Ethical Conduct. New employees also undergo orientation in the sector where they will work.

To improve the Company's operational results, the Human Resources area began restructuring in 2016, which included a review of organiza- tional processes to assure good employee man- agement, suitable compensation and e ciency across the production chain. Career model en- hancement programs were also launched, based on competencies and the Winning Attitude pro- gram, in synergy with the Company's values and goals in the short, medium and long terms.
All of these measures bene tted the 12,825 di- rect workers with the Company at the end of the year, in Brazil and abroad, of whom 9,269 were men and 3,556 were women, making active con- tributions to the performance of the business. Of this total, 8,002 were on the sta  at industrial units in Brazil, with contracts governed by the Consolidated Labor Laws (CLT) and in line with a policy of valuing and respecting di erences.  e turnover rate for the year was 3.55%, down by 28% from the year before.
