International Paper in South America

Career Advancement

At International Paper there are different tools available to help employees perfect their talents and prepare themselves to achieve high standards of excellence while advancing their careers. 

We have a strong development model. First, it’s necessary to know the corporate direction and understand the expectations that the company has in relation to the employee, and which competencies are important for their work. Thus, anyone can build a development plan and evolve forever. This growth is coupled with feedback sessions, which are frequently held and encouraged. This development model is called Road Map and we believe that this method allows employees to expand opportunities for professional growth.
