control still rests primarily at the upper levels of the hierarchy. However, before decisions are made, employees are consulted, and their views are taken into consideration” (Miller, 2015, pp. 50-51). Natura’s management is based on more traditional models of business, with a vertical hierarchy, where three co-chairs, one CEO, and six advisers compose the board of administration (Natura’s Annual Report, 2017). However, when making decisions, “consultants” are placed as a priority, and everybody’s voice is heard. Therefore, even if the final word comes from the management, all employees influence the decisions made in the organization. Natura’s values are what make it such a remarkable organization. One of their main values is the relationship between individuals, not just consumers, but all those involved with the organization. This can be noted in their actions, communication platforms and the relevance that the established link between consultants and consumers represents for the business.

According to Liuchy, its main causes today are: women in leadership, and inclusion of minorities in the workplace, such as black people and people with disabilities. Finally, it is also clear that Natura values creativity and innovation. In relation to its technologies, products, attitudes and ideologies, throughout its trajectory, it has always been considered a disruptive company in the market. Natura has an extremely strong organizational culture that is recognized both internally and externally. In analyzing the various sources used for this study, I observed a great degree of consistency in relation to how the market and Natura itself see the organization. “Natura was abl>GET ANSWER
