Middle and operative positions, receive an annual compensation increase with at least the inflation rate, subsequently each case is analyzed by its respective department director in case compensation needs to increase in accordance with their performance. All our employees enjoy a variable additional compensations in accordance with organizational and individual performance.
FUNO offers employee benefits that go beyond Mexican regulations; we do so in order to develop our human capital and retain key talent; such benefits are covered through ordinary organizational resources. Some benefits we offer are:

All employees are fully informed of work conditions, benefits, etc. with at least 15 days’ notice.
