FEMSA was the first Mexican company to offer health services, housing loans, and a savings fund to its workers
In 2006, FEMSA's Cuauhtémoc y Famosa Clinic received the silver Accésit that is part of the Iberoamerican Quality award
FEMSA provides more than 170,000 jobs in 9 countries of Latin America
In 2012, FEMSA received for the eighth consecutive time the recognition "Ethics and Values of the Industry" given by CONCAMIN.
We won "Best Employers of Latin America 2004" & "Best Employers Mexico 2008", awarded by Hewitt Associates.
We are committed to promoting an organizational culture based on our values, which involves complete respect for human rights, encourages the integral development of our employees and their families, as well as a motivating, diverse, tolerant, and inclusive workplace environment.
One of our key initiatives is the Sociedad Cuauhtémoc y Famosa (SCyF), a social and cultural development program for our employees and their families. Created in 1918 as a savings and investment union for employees, today SCyF operates 106 associations and 9 recreational centers throughout Mexico, which foster the development and well-being of FEMSA employees and their families.
In addition to sports, cultural, and recreational activities, SCyF provides financial and legal services and scholarships and educational opportunities for employees and their families.
Clínica Cuauhtémoc y Famosa (CCyF) is our nonprofit healthcare service for employees and their families. With 38 centers operating in Mexico, CCyF provides specialized occupational healthcare services, such as eye, dental, and emergency care, and promotes preventive healthcare through programs designed to increase awareness. CCyF not only benefits employees by offering high-quality health care, it also improves productivity and reduces turnover within the company.
In 1906, Cervecería Cuauhtémoc began providing housing for its workers. That program grew to become Patrimonio de la Vivienda de los Trabajadores Asociación Civil (PAVITAC), our home-loan program for employees. Since 1972 until March 2009, PAVITAC granted 9,173 housing loans to its employees.
We believe that people of all levels of ability deserve the opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential. Through our hiring practices, and in particular our Program for Workplace Integration of People with Different Abilities, we seek to recruit and hire people with disabilities and support Mexico's Labor Integration for People with Disabilities.
FEMSA began this program in 2001. In 2009, 550 people with disabilities and senior adults, have been integrated to the company's working force in all levels and in the different Business Units of all the countries where we have operations. In 2006 Mexico's Secretary of Labor recognized our efforts by awarding FEMSA with the Inclusive Company Award.
