Therrestra Jamaica taught me to work with purpose, focus and dedication. Being surrounded by such hard-working, disciplined and dedicated people drives me every day to do my best. Giving up is not an option, reaching the top is.
Delivery, professionalism, responsibility and commitment I wish to leave at Grupo Therrestra.
Therrestra means for me an inspiration, passion, family and dedication. Day by day we give everything for everything on site, accompanied by a constant effort and a team of professionals who are truly trained in all areas of need, in order to satisfy the client's dream by turning it into reality. I learned that problems always have solutions, that there is no need to drown in minimal things, when we have at first glance how to solve them.
Now I am a trained professional in the field of construction, having the opportunity to teach the future generation of builders all my knowledge and experience, I wish that, as time passes, my name will be remembered for being a transparent, efficient, visionary person and responsible.
Therrestra has helped me to be more disciplined, aware that well-managed leadership promotes positive changes and leads us to achieve our goals and be more organized. During the time that I have been working here, I have been given the opportunity to acquire field and administrative experience in different projects, which has made me aware that I must be sustainable and environmentally conscious, to identify tools to deal with each situation, to establish clear sustainable strategies over time and the value of people management, teaching me that there is a new dimension of expressing a new concept of accommodation and an incredible experience in the Dominican Republic through great works and tourism projects.
In turn adding to be more disciplined, aware that well-managed leadership promotes positive changes and leads us to achieve our goals and be more organized.
During my time at Therrestra, I have been given the opportunity to gain field and administrative experience in different projects, which has made me aware that I must be sustainable and environmentally conscious, to identify tools to deal with each situation, to establish clear sustainable strategies over time and the value of people management.
Grupo Therrestra changed and continues to change my life every day at work, professional, personal and family level. I knocked on the door of Ing. Hugo Pérez at a crucial moment in my life and once I was considered to work at Therrestra, I did not hesitate for a moment to accept being part of the team. I have dedicated myself to getting to know the company and learning each area, but, above all, to generating value in each step I take. In the beginning, it was hard, because I had no experience, but it has not been difficult for me to learn and I have bravely faced everything that has been assigned to me, because I have always had the certainty and security that everything you can dream, you can achieve. , so for me this experience has meant finding my way and I am very proud of the person I have become even making mistakes like everyone else. I have the illusion of doing great things and that, if I do my job well, other people may have opportunities like the one that was given to me.
My greatest and first achievement has been to start a family, fight to be happy and do what I like, because life has to be lived in the best way, filling ourselves with positive things, good vibes and good love. My second and no less important achievement, to meet the expectations, set objectives and goals that the company has put in my hands.
Now I am a son, I am a husband, I am a friend, I am a collaborator who is passionate about what he does. I am a set of my name, gender, nationality, profession and tastes, wishing to leave a unique mark, leaving as an example that we should never limit ourselves, we are much more than what is seen. Never be afraid of making mistakes and failing.
For me, Therrestra means passion, dedication, perseverance, discipline and enthusiasm, it has taught me the importance of surrendering body and soul so that together we can achieve and carry out great projects
Today I can say that I am a renewed person, with new goals, new horizons, new opportunities and new purposes, for which to fight to continue my professional and personal growth. Over time I have had the opportunity to perform new functions, they have taught me to value more learning new things, the way in which you can develop if you face new challenges and opening up to new areas for me as a professional.
On a personal level my life has taken a 180 degree turn, the opportunity to meet new cultures, explore new work areas, share our day to day with exceptional colleagues, it has helped me to be a better person and a better human being.
Professionalism, responsibility, respect and passion is what I want to see reflected from me, to all my colleagues, who fight together every day to make great projects come true. May they remember me for my dedication and dedication, an unforgettable mark.
Therrestra apart from being the leading company in the construction of hotel projects due to its quality of execution and delivery time. It is the best place I have found to develop professionally.
It has taught me to face challenges with responsibility and courage, it has added an infinite amount of experience in my work and professional training, it has improved my work discipline, my level of collaboration with the team to which I belong and my proactivity in the search for excellence. and continuous improvement. Personally, it has helped me to focus more on the details.
When I entered Therrestra, my life changed remarkably, feeling that I was in an institution that values and respects the work and effort of its collaborators as its main asset. The greatest achievement obtained is having been part of the Ocean Coral Spring project in Jamaica, due to the volume of work carried out by our team in a short time in a foreign country. He had previously collaborated in another Bahía Príncipe Fantasy challenge in the Dominican Republic.
Now I am a more confident professional who feels more accomplished for having collaborated on important projects in my country and abroad. I want my time at Therrestra to leave the mark of a committed professional, who is at the service of others and who always put his best effort to carry out the activities that he is responsible for.
Maria Eugenia Mendez
Therrestra is a school of growth and challenges that has been a fundamental basis for my professional development, leading to acquiring new knowledge, giving me the opportunity to flourish as a person. It has added me, vision, focus, development, determination and security.
I am not one of the people who usually show the world the process, I fight, I run the extra mile and face each test until I achieve a result of which I feel that I have given the 101% of me, I consider myself a dynamic, strong, persistent, focused person, prepared to face challenges that life has given me since I was little and I have overcome them with great fervor, likewise, the changes and losses that little by little are forging in order to be a stronger, more prepared and determined person in the future.
Throughout my life I have managed to meet many of my goals, including finishing my studies while working and raising a family, being my engine to move forward each day facing fears and adversities, showing that this is not the end of the road , that every moment is good to learn something new and likewise take one more step to fulfill the most precious desires.
Today, I can say that I am a more prepared person, with a lot of energy and aware that when you work with passion and determination you can obtain great results and that is the mark I want to leave in this company that opened the doors for me and gave me the opportunity to demonstrate my potential and also improve myself.
Upon entering Therrestra my life took a 180 degree turn. It has been an experience that has led me to transcend not only professionally but also personally. The time that I have been part of the THERRESTRA team has helped me to be more independent, to be more empowered when making decisions and to sharpen my professional criteria. I have more confidence in my criteria and my skills as a civil engineer, I can say that there is a version of me before and another improved after joining the company.
In this way, both in my work and personal training, TH has impacted me in a significant way, since working under an environment full of challenges has helped to awaken in me the need to provide answers and solutions in a safe and effective way.
For me, Therrestra means innovation, commitment and responsibility. During the time that I have been working in the company, TH has taught me that everything is possible as long as you work with effort and dedication.
Now, without a doubt, I am a professional in civil engineering, highly qualified, with experience in the area, oriented towards teamwork and obtaining the best results in the most efficient way. Always focused on giving my best and every day more motivated to solve more complex situations.
From now on, I want her to be recognized as a professional whose contributions, skills, knowledge and efforts contributed to the successful development, permanence in time and positioning of the company in the national and international market.
Therrestra has been a school for me since I have developed capacities that I did not know I could possess, in the almost 9 years that I have been in this great family, I have met extraordinary people who have excited and encouraged me to be a better person and professional every day.
Both professionally and personally, I have added empathy, ability to work as a team, motivation to go for more.
Being the most formal job that I have had the opportunity to belong to, Therrestra has helped me to develop as a professional, being a platform to put into practice the knowledge acquired through my university career.
Likewise, I can develop my master's degree, together with the company, to support social responsibility activities, allowing this to contribute to society and feel proud to be part of this great family.
Now I am more human, a better partner and through my position as Administrative Assistant Manager I intend to continue contributing every day to the strengthening and growth of Therrestra as a brand in the industry.
I would like to be remembered for my responsibility, dedication, commitment and punctuality in the exercise of my duties.
While I held the position of "Purchasing Manager" in 2015, one day Eng. Pérez informed me that we had a meeting with a person at 5:30 pm that day, the time for the meeting arrived, which was with Joan García the owner of the advertising that to this day I work hand in hand. Does he say to Joan "Shall I introduce you to the former Purchasing Manager", and I was surprised to ask him how like this? ... His answer was, from now on you become Assistant Administrative Manager of this company and we will cover the full payment of a Master in Business Administration to strengthen your knowledge in that area since you are a Publicist.
For me Therrestra are the doors that were opened to give me the opportunity to develop in my career as an accountant without vast experience in the area.
It has taught me that you can play a good role as a professional if you put effort and passion in what you want to achieve, it showed me that life is constantly changing, sometimes things that always seemed to be one way, end up transforming.
In the same way, it showed me that whenever I am in a work group or have to lead it, recognizing the worth of the people who make it up is a pleasant aptitude, of companionship and loyalty. That, if I want to be a leader, I have to lead by example and my self-discipline will tell more about me, that what I can speak and that companies in order to stay in the elite must be in constant change, that is why I must be flexible and able to adapt to circumstances.
I have become someone who takes initiative, with a positive attitude, as well as an optimistic spirit, which has helped me a lot in the fulfillment of my tasks, because it has allowed me to find the purpose in everything I do, to do it with more motivation and courage. In addition, it has allowed me to develop my practical intelligence, which allows me a better development in the fulfillment of the tasks assigned to me.
Now I can say that I am a person of goals, who is always looking for a way to implement my ideas and be able to contribute my quota, to somehow be part of the change that is occurring at the moment. In general, what drives me is my desire to do more and give more, I think that this is the best contribution Therrestra has made to me, boosting my capacity for flexibility and proactivity to fulfill the tasks assigned and the projects that I undertake.
I have managed to maintain the controls to detect and prevent the leakage of assets of the company in the hands of third parties and to be a reliable person for the management of finances in cases where senior managers have been forced to delegate their functions.
I am a proactive person, with great gifts to work under pressure, great ability to adapt to change, clear results orientation and committed to helping the work team to which I belong to develop their skills so that we can achieve the objectives set.
I want to be remembered as a person committed to the company, who every day displayed his maximum potential and committed to achieving high levels of performance. To be recognized as a person who left a trail of excellence during my stay at the company. A woman capable of acting in the face of uncertainty, taking advantage of it as an opportunity, with the desire to improve every day.
Finally, Therrestra for me is the basis of my working career, where I knocked on the door, they opened it for me and I saw how much it was worth waiting to find the right thing. God has always been very good to me, and the moment he put me here I could see even more how wonderful he can be.
TH has placed the first step to forge what my life would be before and after, it is here where without any work experience they placed trust in me and in what I could achieve, I remember that I was studying my tenth semester of accounting when they called me to the interview, and from that day on the opportunity to belong and strengthen my skills and improve as a professional.
Every day I learn from the company, and I think I have much more to learn, knowing is not something for a day, for me it is a constant power to walk, looking for the good that a place and people can bring us to grow, is to launch yourself give your best and that at the end of each day you feel proud of what you have achieved. This family has taught me that we all have the opportunity to be better at what we do every day, and challenge ourselves to achieve what we set out to do.
Therrestra has been the basis of my working career, it has added in these years knowledge and experience in the area that I did not have, through it I have been growing professionally and personally, this company is my source of income and thanks to I have been able to achieve and sustain personal and family projects that have helped us grow every day and continue to fight with effort and dedication, because the best is yet to come!
Getting here was a 180 degree turn, here I met people who gave me credibility and trusted in my ability. Today I feel happy, and very grateful to belong to this great family and to work with people who give their best and that I can learn from them every day.
One of the greatest achievements that I have had, perhaps it will sound simple to many, but for me it is very big and fills me with a lot of joy and satisfaction, my parents paid me for college with a lot of effort and sacrifice, but with a lot of love despite the They had limited income, working in this company allowed me to finish paying for my studies until the end and to be able to help and collaborate with them.
I am still the same Yulissa, because the essence of who you are should never change, what if it grows is the level of maturity and commitment with which you face each challenge in life, and as Mommy says, the years cannot pass us by long, that our growth is day by day to obtain a better result, the time that I have been part of this team, has forged in me from the workplace to be more objective and secure when responding to what is presented in my daily tasks and knowing that not everything is black and white, that you have to evaluate the whole situation to choose the one that is most feasible to reach the final objective.
The passage through this land is transitory and the footprints that we want and must leave in it will depend on how we plant and care for that tree called life, your actions define and mark you, and that will be what you will leave to remind you, every day we strive to Giving the best is a step that is added in our passage through life, the mark I want to leave is to be remembered for my actions and my performance in the tasks that I do with passion.
I want to leave a positive mark on each of my colleagues and for them to see my example that with God we can get ahead, we have to do what is right and well, above all, that we can live full of the peace of God that surpasses all understanding , I want to be remembered as a person who likes to serve, always ready to help others.
Therrestra means to me an extraordinary experience of commitment and work loyalty. Teaching me that it is only possible to optimize professional skills through treasurer work and perseverance for the achievement of excellence. In my work and personal training, it has given me discipline, passion for my profession and capacity for group work.
I believe that the most important change was to broaden my expectations regarding the achievement of ambitious goals and satisfaction with the achievements obtained.
At Grupo Therrestra, my greatest achievement has been to see the successful culmination of projects in which I have maximized my capacity for commitment and unconditional dedication.
Today I can say that I am definitely a before and after of Therrestra, today I have solid arguments to feel professionally and personally prepared for any challenge, trying every day to be a better version of myself.
I want to be a mark marked by dignity, loyalty, responsibility and commitment whose permanence is renewed through the quality of my work. I aspire that my footprint represents the spirit of a creative team willing to achieve infinite goals.
Maria Fernanda Perez
Starting in Therrestra I define it as a 180 degree change in my life. At 22 years old, I was not only faced with the opportunity to start a work stage in a new company but also with the fact of emigrating to another country, Jamaica.
Starting to work in a country with a completely different culture, language, customs and system is definitely a challenge, however, it has been one of the decisions that has contributed the most positively to me. It allowed me to grow, both personally and at work, to value my family and friends more, challenge myself, demand more of myself and above all trust, learn and not limit my abilities, skills and knowledge.
For me, Therrestra means growth, excellence, commitment and evolution.
Where I not only develop my knowledge and skills, but every day I can grow, challenge myself to learn something different and develop in new areas.
That is why now I consider myself a person with more skills, greater professional experience and emotional intelligence.
Now I can say that the only constant is change, and in Therrestra I have been able to learn how important and necessary it is to reinvent ourselves, either as a person or as a professional, no matter how difficult a situation may seem. If I regret something, it is for not having been able to do it before, that is, making the decision, having the opportunity and living the experience of working and living there.
'' Perseverance and persistence are the fuels that drive people to achieve their goals. ''
Therrestra is the basis of my working career, it is family, I started here without experience and it has given me the opportunity to grow and acquire new knowledge.
It has allowed me to improve my professional development, being a key point in my growth, it has added unforgettable experiences that make me a better human being, allowing me to develop my skills to the fullest.
I can say that because of Therrestra I am a more mature person on a personal level and more prepared in the workplace, but even keeping in mind that I still have a lot to learn.
TH for me has only one meaning training I can say that it has been my school and my university professionally speaking, it is where I have been able to learn, know, acquire, share my knowledge and skills that in all this time I have been able to offer my services.
It is for me, my home where the familiarity and trust that exists makes work more bearable and beneficial for all. It has taught me persistence, the discipline that you must have when you want to achieve what you set out to do. It has taught me to give more of myself when sometimes my comfort zone understands that it has given the "maximum".
In terms of work, it has helped me to be more useful, agile and above all much more attentive to my day-to-day functions. Personally, it has added to me to be more grateful with what I have and what I have been able to achieve on my own.
My life changed in the blink of an eye, this opportunity was given to me without waiting for it, it was something that when it happened happened so quickly that I did not imagine it because I joined this company young, I did not know or had not worked in a company with such high prestige and / or magnitude, so I was getting to know what responsibility at work is, responsibility at home, I was changing, I was getting to know new tools, new mechanisms, new organization chart, a new way of working that changed my life in a very positive. It is something that I understand that has helped me continue to grow in all aspects of my life.
One of the greatest achievements that I have had and it continues to be significant in TH has been my way of solving and being able to send orders, receive orders in record time because the emergencies that exist on site make this department (purchases) work strongly under pressure which He has many people around him pending this process.
Laura Mccabe is now a more willing person, more observant, much more positive in my functions. I understand that I am now much more proactive in everything that has to do with my department. A more assertive person and above all grateful with what I have learned in this company and in this position.
At TH I want to leave my essence, my way of sharing and running this department on a daily basis together with everything I have learned and contributed in these six years of fidelity and loyalty. May they remember me as that person who despite having a strong and "difficult" character was there ready to help, collaborate and respond to any situation.
Therrestra It means passion, commitment and dedication to work. It is the entity that has taught me that with hard work and effort it is possible to achieve each of the objectives that we set ourselves as a professional, since I came to this company, I have managed to advance in different aspects of my career.
The support I receive from my superiors has been crucial in my professional training, it has allowed me to pursue my career in a sector that was completely unknown to me, to learn about certain processes that must be taken into consideration in a company of such magnitude, in order to this way contribute to the objectives of the same.
As for the personal, it teaches me every day how important companionship is and the value of friendship.
Expanding my knowledge in other fields, for me it was impossible, but since I came to this company, I understood that nothing was impossible, it gave me the opportunity to continue growing as a person and professional by giving me the tools that my profession (Accounting) should apply in the construction sector.
Currently I am a more mature person, with greater capacities and skills, which have been perfected thanks to the opportunity that I received a few years ago.
Therrestra is recognized for giving opportunities to new talents, and day by day I give thanks for being part of this beautiful family, I hope that my skills and hard work contribute to the permanence and growth in the sector.
For me Therrestra means opportunity and growth, since I got to know the company, a high interest in being part of it awoke in me. More than a company with well-defined objectives, it is a space for continuous growth and a team that encourages you to give more and be better every day, always respecting the way of being, the point of view and the opinions of each of its members.
When Therrestra selected me to honor his award ¨TH Excellence 2021¨, it allowed me to reconfirm the premise that excellence is built on the basis of perseverance and effort, making me feel identified with the company and even more with the commitment we have as engineers, serving with ingenuity, creativity and knowledge of science and technology, making our environment a more suitable and comfortable place to inhabit.
Being part of Therrestra, I have been able to consolidate the knowledge already obtained in my academic training and learn new ones in the continuous and permanent process of my professional development, always being willing to grow, enhance my abilities and give the best of myself to achieve my personal goals and those of the team.
I would like my footprint at TH to be marked with the seal of excellence, quality and the constant search for the best solutions. That my person can contribute to the growth of the company and that of my colleagues, allowing me to transmit the philosophy of life that I have adopted ¨Never stop, never settle until the good is better and the best is excellent¨.
When the process for the TH-2021 Excellence Award began, I was nominated by the University and then Eng. Ramón López interviewed me, being more than an interview a conversation about me and my story, at the end of the interview the only question What I did was ¨ How many people will they interview? ¨ I still remember his reaction of astonishment, but he answered me anyway.
That same day she called me later to give me the news that she had been selected, at that moment I could not believe it and I was on a medical appointment, so I had to contain the excitement of knowing that my studies would be fully financially covered and I would have the opportunity to work Therrestra.
In the process of recording the video and the photos for the graduation and the company, I met Ing. Hugo, talking, he asked me who he was and what my story is, telling him the following: ¨ It seems that the planets aligned with you ¨, By that time, due to the Covid -19 pandemic, there were no vacancies to employ me, but the opportunity immediately presented itself.He himself called me to find out what he was doing and if he could join the team, offering me one of the positions of trust and broad management of the proyects. And here I am, being part of THERRESTRA.
Therrestra is more than my workplace, for me, it is a family of unique and extraordinary people where each one, with the personality that characterizes them, plays an important role within this family nucleus, and like any functional family where each one has a different personality, has taught me the value of dedication, the importance of teamwork and the commitment to feel part of it, the value of sacrifice by not thinking individually, but, in what is best for the company, for the family.
On a professional level, in Therrestra I discovered that this work really fascinates me and fills me with pride, at the end of each project I feel a satisfactory nostalgia knowing that I contributed my bit to “Make Great Ideas Come True”, on a personal level it has made me more independent, more objective, analytical and critical; Today I see things from another perspective before making any evaluative judgments, and most importantly, I learned to act less impulsively, which, for a logical, direct and with a lot of character like me, has been a great victory.
This has transcendentally changed my life, I have improved my interaction with the people around me and it has helped me to better project my image, without thinking twice, Therrestra changed my life, my period on site helped me to appreciate the sacrifice made by my parents to give me the best education, I learned to value my friends, who despite the distance always received me with the same love when I returned on my days off, here I have acquired a new family and great friends.
For me, it has been challenging to win the respect of all those around me, especially being on site, with the workforce where there are people of all types and customs, having more than 300 workers linked between workers and subcontractors, knowing them each one by face and name and letting them know, making the reports for the payment and achieving the reconciliations was challenging, especially because I was very young and at first some believed that they could take advantage of this, when they realized that no, then I got the respect he deserved.
Another challenge was the changes we are experiencing due to the pandemic, the anxieties generated by the curfew, and the transformation of responsibilities.
Today I am the caterpillar that became a butterfly, I am strong, determined, more humble and more human, I am THERRESTRA, I am Therrestra because over time, like the company I have suffered changes, situations and in the face of adversity With the support of the team that supports me, I have remained on my feet.
As Manager of Subcontracts & Acquisitions, my objective is to strengthen our position in the national and international market by making strategic alliances between suppliers, logistics, and new acquisitions; I would like to be remembered as an entity of change, leaving my mark on the people around me, through teaching, I would like to help train better professionals for the company and in turn, for our country.
In the year of madness, where we had more than 8 projects at the same time, when we finished the work of Excellence, I had to go to Fantasy to serve as support there, when I arrived at this work the first thing I saw was our leader, Eng. Hugo Pérez bathed in sweat, standing from 5AM working every day as one of the team to achieve the goal we had in common, this type of sacrifice and dedication made the difference and we were able to build a 504-room hotel with its noble areas corresponding from ZERO in just seven months, that is the difference between a leader and a boss, I am captivated by the way Hugo influences his surroundings and how he makes us all feel committed and identified with the cause.
Therrestra means commitment and passion. It has taught me that good results are obtained through work focused on details, so that not only is reaching the goal at all costs, but the journey is just as satisfying.
On the job, Therrestra has taught me to manage the construction industry off the books, to be part of a team by leveraging strengths and complementing weaknesses, which has also personally developed my skills in personnel management, critical thinking, and need for innovation.
My experience at Therrestra has helped me develop my potential and the way I see projects. I feel more confident in my talent and more motivated to reach the limits in search of being the best version of me, I am capable of taking on large-scale challenges.
I am a professional with enough experience and ability to work on large-scale projects, result-oriented, eager to move forward and work to be able to make contributions to new generations in the future.
I want to make a difference as a professional, give the best of myself and be part of the continuous improvement of a team committed to the success and socioeconomic development of the country.
Therrestra is a Company that provides opportunities for growth, both personal and professional.
Through my training, the company has helped me in every step of my performance, seeing my weak points, to correct them and help me move forward in each of my achievements.
On a professional level, I can say that Therrestra joined me in everything, because through my work I have been motivated to update my knowledge.
On a personal level, he has contributed to working more focused, facing problems that may arise with a balanced criterion and, above all, to valuing teamwork, since all work depends on that.
The change that my life gave was 180º, especially in giving me economic and family stability and above all it has changed my way of seeing life, giving priority to my work environment, family and my society.
My life gave many changes, seeing myself as an entity with virtues and defects, but, above all, seeing the sense of responsibility at work, always trying to give my best without taking into account fatigue or stress. discouragement, thinking of achieving the best result in my work.
I am a more focused person with desires every day to grow in adequate knowledge to apply in my work. I believe that this pandemic has taught us all that, despite the vicissitudes, everything that is proposed can be achieved.
I wish to leave in TH the mark of responsibility, honesty and of seeing work as a duty to give my best, taking into account the Company's guidelines and teamwork.
