For monitoring the workplace environment, CMPC uses the Great Place to Work (GPTW) measurement model, which includes 58 questions grouped into five dimensions: credibility, fairness, respect, camaraderie and pride. The survey is conducted across the entire company on a yearly basis.​

The continuity and stability of its workforce is a permanent concern for CMPC. That is why new Corporate HR policies are being developed to create a more sustainable model of attracting and retaining talent including performance evaluation based on individually set development goals and growth opportunities.
