ALL’S WELL THAT... STARTS WITH A SMILE: ANTONIO TEIXEIRA
Antonio Teixeira starts every new day at his production department in De Rigo with this greeting. But in his case, it is not merely a perfunctory greeting. It is heartfelt, meant, and selflessly uttered. In that hello lies is a sincere wish, a genuine attitude of concern towards those before him. And in fact, Antonio greets every collaborator individually, looking them straight in the eye. “As head of department, I try to make every workday a pleasant one. My aim is to work together with clarity of intent, but at the same time in the hope of making our workplace both productive and enjoyable”. For Antonio, this is not an oxymoron, but rather an awareness that people work better when they are serene and motivated.
