NextView People and Grupo Cia de Talentos, which annually conduct the Dream Career (Carreira dos Sonhos) survey, last week honored Odebrecht for its efforts over recent years to identify and groom youth, which, in the survey, refers to professionals aged up to 26 and are at the start of their career. This year, Odebrecht S.A. ranked 11th in the Dream Career of Youth category.

From 2012 to 2016, Odebrecht was among the 10 companies most mentioned by Brazilian youth in the Dream Career survey. It reached its best mark in 2014 and 2015, when it ranked 3rd as the brand most mentioned by this group. 

“This recognition makes us aware of and strengthens our pride in belonging to Odebrecht. Youth play a vital role in the future of the Group and it is our commitment to continue giving them the opportunity for self-development by constantly being challenged," says Daniel Villar, Responsible for People and Planning at Odebrecht S.A.
