Illustration of the Policies, Directives and Procedures
“Do you want me to draw?” is the expression that was adopted into Azevedo & Travassos® in a much wider sense than its humorous interpretation.
Aiming to increase the visibility of its rules and directives, the company decided to draw its documents of general interest. The project was developed in partnership with professionals from the Vila Mirante- Pirituba community, where the company is settled. As a consequence, in addition to the first objective, there is a real closeness between the company and the surrounding community.
In April, 2008, with the inauguration of The Bookstand, Azevedo & Travassos® made official its project to encourage reading. The project aims, apart from stimulating reading, to increase the comprehension of the texts and consequently improve communication among its professionals.
Since the start, The Bookstand is maintained by donations, mainly from its own employees. A list of the titles of The Bookstand is available at the company’s website, so that all the employees can borrow any book independent of the location of the project where they are working on.
Azevedo & Travassos® supports the following projects:
FUNCAD – São Paulo City Council
