I have been in Cidade Center Norte for almost 2 years, and coming here has brought me two great personal milestones, the improvement in my quality of life and the opportunity to repay, through my work, in generating a positive impact in the ZN region of São Paulo, where I also live.
For me the big difference of the group is that we put into practice the values of the company on a daily basis, such as respect, work and family. We reinforce our commitment to the purpose of placing corporate sustainability as the purpose of our operations and the fundamental premise of the management of our business, aiming to generate positive and simultaneous results, for all our stakeholders, internal and external, in economic, environmental and social aspects. .

I have just completed 7 months as a CCN employee and what I felt from the beginning was a welcome and a very pleasant environment to carry out my tasks. What surprised me since I arrived was to see how much the company values the human side of its employees, providing a pleasant and often uncluttered environment, which makes us even more comfortable to work.

The closeness and partnership of the departments makes the other employees, in fact, like a second family for me. I think that the company's engagement in human and social issues provides us with this pleasant environment, which ends up making our lives easier in the execution of daily tasks. After all, what makes the company move forward is this: the union, partnership, integration of departments and, of course, the dedication of all its employees!

I had the honor and pleasure of being part of the staff of this wonderful company again. In my first visit, I had the opportunity to learn a lot about the follow-up of events, because here we have a work routine totally different from any other area, here we learn that the need to be versatile is one of the guidelines and brand for professionals, the each event, each fair, a new challenge. In this second passage, I had the opportunity to exercise a leadership position, I am learning and evolving every day, especially with regard to the importance of the human factor for the success of organizations, because we work with people, for people and for people . We have here a company that is very attached to its employees, that values, respects and encourages.

I arrived at CCN just over four years ago. During that time I have been through two different departments, and today I am being trained to support a third party. This is one of the things that enchants me at the company: this possibility of always learning something new and moving professionally, within the business itself!
In addition, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and I am part of a team that supports itself at all times, celebrating each achievement and rolling up its sleeves to help when challenges arise!
It is undoubtedly a company that goes beyond the basics and that we are proud to be part of!

Giuliana Tavares Giuliana Tavares

I was welcomed by Cidade Center Norte 4 years ago, in a moment of searching for new professional horizons and a new way of working. He had also chosen to move to another city and was experiencing a scenario with many variables. This welcome that was given to me made all the difference within this context. At the beginning, I saw purposes and values in this new family of mine, the Center Norte family.
In addition to this welcoming environment, I received confidence and autonomy to face the challenges that presented themselves at that time, along with preparation and training.
Working in this city is inspiring, it is taking challenges daily and being encouraged to overcome them, it is getting out of your comfort zone, quickly and in an innovative way. And doing that with a tough team makes work a source of achievement.
And that has been the case since then, a mutual and very rich exchange of experiences and inspirations. Thank you City Center North.
Juliany Regina Amad Juliany Regina Amad

I was born and raised in the north of São Paulo, and as a good resident of the region I have always frequented the complexes of the city center north. I watched it grow, improve and become a place where I would feel at home, but I never imagined that in my first job opportunity I would be part of the backstage of all of this, and that above all, my main task would be to make the client feel at home. After joining CCN I was able to get a sense of the great gear that this complex is, which supports the northern zone and which is aware of its role in a sustainable society, I participated in many projects that I am pleased to say that have changed me not only as a professional but like person. Without a doubt, I am very proud to be part of a company with purposes similar to mine, which is aware of its impact and how to make that impact positive. And I can't help but thank my manager, who helped me grow as a professional, formed a team with a lot of synergy and with love for what she does.
Larissa Carneiro da Silva Larissa Carneiro da Silva

Since I was little I always went to Shopping Center Norte and having my first professional opportunity here was a great achievement for me. I started as an intern at CCN last year and from the beginning I felt welcomed and surrounded by people within my area, People and Management, with the same purpose: taking care of people. When I say about caring for people, I mean that when looking at a collaborator, first of all we see a human being with his personal life, his family, his hobbies and his own wishes, it shows us that, first of all, we must respect and offering a diverse and welcoming environment so that regardless of who that person is, they can feel good the way they are. This vision enchanted me, since I have always been very concerned with people's well-being and it is very good to be able to work believing, above all, in my life purpose.
In addition, I can clearly say that CCN is a welcoming place, I made friends and learned a lot from people who were willing to teach me. Now, effective and with all the knowledge I had during that period, I feel prepared and ready for the new challenges that await me. Working in Cidade Centro Norte makes me evolve as a professional and as a person, and it has been very rewarding to be here and to be able to see my evolution.

When I started working at Center Norte, I soon noticed an engagement, commitment and respect from employees and that was what motivated me the most to want to stay on that team.
Today I am grateful to be here! 15 years have passed since I am part of the Center Norte Family with great pride and I try to give my best every day, learning and developing so that we can continue with an engaged team and who enjoy being in the position that they are doing what they do together to provide personalized service to our customers. At the moment we are living, being part of a company that seeks to reinvent itself every day thinking about every detail for the well-being of its employees and customers so that when entering the North and Lar Center Malls, they continue to feel safe as if they were in home, this is called trust in the work we do is the certainty that together we are stronger!

Learn about some of Cidade Center Norte initiatives and how they are contributing to citizenship and sustainability in our enterprises.

Cooperative Kiosk

Cooperative Kiosk is a space inside Center Norte dedicated for the use of NGOs and third sector institutions to sell products and improve their income and visibility of their work. Every three months, a new NGO may use the space.

Nowadays, the Cooperative Kiosk serves as part of the education in entrepreneurship of project Mulheres Empreendedoras, in a partnership established with Rede Asta, through which craftswomen who have completed the course are in charge of the management of the Kiosk and have to be responsible for product replacement, pricing, visual identity and customer relation, a way of reinforcing their learning.

Entre Rodas

The #NÃOÉMITO project encourages the exchange of soda can pull-tabs for hugs, and with the sale of the product, Entre Rodas buys customized wheelchairs made of aeronautic aluminum painted in the colors the kids wish.

Cidade Center Norte supports such an important and helpful project because we understand the importance of our clients participation in this campaign and with that reinforce our commitment to the process of initiative engagement.

Sessão Azul

After years of listening, observing and living the experiences of families of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), we identified several cases in which family members stopped having a greater social interaction for fear of the autistic’s reaction in situations that may not be so comfortable for them. Some of them, such as going to the mall, restaurants, parties, or to the movies, apparently easy for people who do not suffer from ASD, can be very uncomfortable for autistic people.

CineMaterna

CineMaterna are movie sessions for mothers with babies of up to 18 months of age, in which dads and companions are also welcome. At Center Norte, they take place monthly, with promotions like free tickets for some mothers.
The movies are for the adults’ entertainment, and the movie theaters are equipped to welcome babies with all the comfort: reduced sound, changing table in the room, softer air-conditioning and a mildly lit environment.

Instituto Center Norte: changing the present
and the future of the North area of the city

Instituto Center Norte is a non-profit organization founded by Cidade Center Norte in 2002 with the aim of helping improve quality of life and income of the residents of the North area of São Paulo (SP).
