The Chamber’s Legal & Business and Human Capital Committees organized a joint event entitled “The Labor Reform: Certainties and Uncertainties” on August 24.
The aim of the event was to discuss the impact the Labor Reform will have on business, workers and the human resources area. Participants initially were given a general view of the Labor Reform, in a comparative manner with what is practiced worldwide. Marcelo Godinho, a partner at Ernst & Young, talked about the main demands and objectives of Y and Z Generation professionals, and the impact of new technologies on work organization and labor relations.
Sebastião Cavalcante, HR Manager at EGS – Ericsson Gestão e Serviços, presented the perspective of the companies and the union, legal and tax challenges the reform represents, giving an important view of what the industrial sector is facing in Brazil. Following the two presentations, there was a debate on the theme moderated by Renato Pacheco Neto, coordinator of the Legal & Business Committee. It was clear that reforms are necessary, but they are still not enough to meet the demand of labor modernization in the 21st century.
