Diversity of the Administrative Council 2019

Clients satisfaction

Customer satisfaction with our technical and operational performance can impact our operation and affect our ability to generate value. For this reason, we maintain a close and constant relationship with this audience, which allows us to receive and give information pertaining to our performance.

Every two years, we approach transmission and generation customers in surveys, based on a commercial perspective. The last one was held in 2018, when we exceeded the goal of 85.31% satisfaction for Eletrobras companies, reaching 94.36%. That same year, we conducted a pilot survey with a technical focus applied to customers of the Eletrosul System Operation, with a questionnaire appropriate to the particularities of this audience. The satisfaction rate found was 94.38% – global satisfaction totaled 94.37%.

Communities safety

All of our plants have an Emergency Situation Assistance Program, which establish responsibilities, measures and effective actions to be taken during contingencies such as natural disasters, spills, fires, problems with information technology, strikes and image crises.

We also have a Transmission Line Emergency Response Plan, which stipulates actions to be taken to reestablish transmission lines in the shortest possible time. The transformers and other equipment have an emergency plan monitored through the Medical Records and Contingency Plans, allowing the continuity of electricity supply. The Substations have the Emergency Situation Assistance Plan (Pase), also contributing to the security of the facilities.

Environmental Management System

Our Environmental Management System is based on four main elements: the Eletrobras Companies Environmental Policy, the Eletrobras Companies Environment Committee, the Corporate Sustainability Management Indicators System (IGS System) – Environmental Module and the Land and Environmental Information System (Sifa), the latter aligned with the premises of the Geoprocessing Policy. A fifth element is being developed by Eletrobras to monitor the conditions of the Environmental Licensing (SAL) process.

In addition to the communication via the Ombudsman, Eletrosul provides an electronic address to meet specific environmental demands (gestaoambiental@cgteletrosul.gov.br).

Profile of employees and diversity

Eletrosul concluded 2019 with 1,058 employees, 6% less compared to the previous year. This variation was mainly due to the adhesion to the Consensual Dismissal Plan (PDC), for which 57 people were dismissed. The plan was implemented by all Eletrobras companies, according to the Holding’s strategic orientation, with the objective of adapting the staff, generating efficiency in the processes, balance between the teams and a sustainable profile for business and people development in the coming years.

One hundred percent of our employees are covered by collective bargaining agreements and have an indefinite contract.

Quality of Life Program

Our quality of life program includes a calendar of campaigns and annual actions, including lectures, guidelines and workshops, initiatives related to the Pink October, Blue November, among other important health events. The week of quality of life takes place in October, and in 2019 the 10th Week of Quality of Life was held, with the objective of promoting the health of employees and contributing with guidelines for health, quality of life and well-being at work.

For the areas of operation and maintenance, which require more physical effort, we offer a conditioning program, which aims to assess the global and specific health for the function of each employee, as well as to raise awareness and guide the achievement of a healthy physical profile for exercise labor.

Psychosocial assessment also complements the health assessment of workers.
