"The development of employees, along with being an important means of personal development, is assumed at NOS as a strategic area for sustained business growth and competitiveness. The existing partnership with CATÓLICA-LISBON is undoubtedly an important pillar in implementing this continuous value creation strategy through the maximization of individual competencies in the areas of management and leadership."

The partnership with Universidade Católica has been very important in the development of our leaders. Nowadays, what it is requested to a leader is significantly different from what was requested some years ago, constituting one important factor in the transformation of our leadership, which we started recently. We have today leaders more focused in people and their development, aware that with only one combined work, in team, it is possible to achieve more sustainable results in this VUCA world. Católica has been really important in this process.
