Barro Forte factory runs an accommodation project for its employees. The company offers accommodation within the factory and pays the bills for the 11 houses inhabited by the workers and their families. The production manager, Mr Oliveira, says, “This initiative has positive impacts on both sides. For the employees it means convenience and the chance to save money, which for the owner is a huge reassurance, because the ceramic factory is no longer isolated”.
