Good practices

In Petrol, we are aware of the power of co-creation and co-innovations. We connect dynamically with various actors in many areas. In this way, we create new values.

Hackathon, an innovative business weekend, has proven to be a new way of recruiting, where many young people present solutions to a particular business problem, issued by Petrol.

Petrol’s innovative weekend was prepared in October 2016 with the ABC Business Acceleration City. The challenge of Hackathon was Petrol's new mobile application On the Path. The challenge was what we would like as users, what we need, what we propose... that Petrol provides us on the go through our mobile application.
