The Protege Group’s companies have the philosophy of valuing and respecting human beings, since they are our main assets.
Institutions such as the family, the community, and our employees are the main agents in our operations and the reason for which we develop our social responsibility projects.
In our segment, Protege innovates not only in the investment in new technologies, but also as the security company that invests the most in social projects. The release of the first edition of our Social Accounting Report in 2006 and at the end of every year since then is a proof of that.
The Crescer Project invests in future generations. We believe that the actions which promote the development of children and teenagers that live in neighboring communities or that are the sons and daughters of our employees contribute to a better world.
Our actions stimulate creativity, using their talents for the arts, practicing sports, and prepare teenagers for the job market by providing them with computer knowledge.
We intend to turn Protege into an extension of our employees’ homes and that their children be proud of the company where their parents work.
We know that companies require a good cultural and educational level from workers. So that our employees may follow market changes and in a way to assure the quality of the service we provide, Protege offers the Aprender Project. This project has existed for over 5 years and offers those who did not conclude Elementary, Middle, or High School the chance to resume their education.
Within that period, around 1,500 employees participated in the project, whether going to the study centers in some units or studying at their homes, with the material provided for free.
In addition to the Aprender Project, we also invest in education by means of partnerships with Higher Education Institutions, which offer discounts in the monthly tuition installments to our employees and their dependent relatives; and by stimulating reading, through our Library, whose collection has more than 700 different books.
Citizenship also translates into being caring with people who are less fortunate, which is the main goal of the Protege Solidária program.
Through timely campaigns that collect toys, food, and clothing, the Protege Solidária program stimulates volunteering and promotes the integration of the company, its employees, and deprived communities.
In the last four years, our actions have helped hundreds of families. Over 25,000 kg of food and 3,000 toys have been donated, assuring a quality diet and making the childhood of many children happier.
