  • Compensation

    Embraer’s compensation strategy is an important tool for attracting, retaining and engaging our employees.

    In support of our business objectives, Embraer provides a total cash compensation program that offers competitive levels of base and variable pay. Base pay levels are competitive with the external job market in which we compete for talent and are reflective of the internal value of each position. Our program is designed to provide the flexibility to appropriately motivate and reward individual and group performance and support Company objectives.

    The objectives of our compensation program are:
    • Performance-based: Links compensation to performance.
    • Market competitiveness: Our salary ranges are established at levels that allow us to attract and retain exceptional people. Our salaries are competitive with the appropriate job markets and address the industry and geographies.
    • Internally Equitable: Our job evaluation system identifies, analyzes and measures jobs within our internal structure and analyzes their relative ranking and worth.
    • Legally compliant and administered with consistency and fairness.
    • An important part of the total rewards offered to our employees.
    Key Components:
    • Fixed Remuneration – base salary. Fixed remuneration is based on the competencies, skills, knowledge and experience required for each position.
    • Variable Remuneration – variable pay. Variable remuneration is directly linked to results achieved by the Company and employees.

    Our Variable Remuneration program shares a portion of Embraer’s profit directly with our employees and is based on objective criteria and measurable performance. This program is linked to company results and encourages improvement in productivity, quality, and organizational development through employee involvement, commitment, and improved performance.

  • P3E - Embraer Enterprise Excellence Program

    P3E IS A KEY ELEMENT TO THE EMBRAER BUSINESS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM. IT HAS MADE THE COMPANY STRONGER AND MORE COMPETENT THROUGH CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT.

    The P3E program has proven to be an effective tool for overcoming obstacles as it has united all the employees globally in the pursuit of results improvement. The structure of the program is based on the Lean Manufacturing philosophy, which allows for a general optimization of the productive architecture and for the introduction of the best manufacturing practices used in the world’s aerospace segment.

    The P3e Pillars:

    • The development of the Embraer organizational culture;
    • People development;
    • Continuous formation of leadership and management abilities;
    • The pursuit of excellence and efficiency in all Embraer processes.

    To implement the P3E program, the employees were organized into over 400 continuous improvement cells, thus involving all processes, value flow, and all Embraer units throughout the world. Each cell advances through phases, moving through a certification process that starts with basic qualification and graduating to the bronze, then to the silver and finally to the gold level, according to the cell’s evolution.

    The P3E is based on the Lean philosophy (which seeks waste and non-added value reduction) to raise the productivity gains and optimize processes, using the kaizen methodology. In 2013, more than 4200 kaizen projects were completed, and for 2014, the expectation is that over 5000 kaizen projects will be accomplished.​

    Since one of the P3E pillars is people, we worked hard to train cell members, continuous improvement agents and leadership in 2011, preparing our company to face future challenges.
