A partnership between Construtora Camargo Corrêa and the Department of Social Development and Fight against Hunger (MDS) created 1851 positions for free labor training courses in the Ferrosul Consortium in Goiás state.

Courses are given by Senai-GO and include training for hardware assemblers, construction carpenter, masons, hydraulic excavator operators and cargo drivers, among others.

The first class, with 20 carpenters, 270 masons, 20 assemblers and 16 operators of dump truck began in April in Santa Helena de Goiás, Itumbiara, and Rio Verde cities. “We could hire about 50% of the candidates who complete the courses and are qualified to the role" adds Juliana Passion, responsible for the project’s HR.

Training courses usually last two months. They are offered for free to low-income people, priority given to students and workers whose individual monthly income is half the minimum wage, or whose household income is up to three minimum wages. The selection of participants is made by the Department.

Social Management

For the vice president of Institutional Relations, Marcelo Sturlini Bisordi, the partnership with MDS is aligned with the mission of Construtora Camargo Corrêa. “We act as inducers of development in communities where we operate. We believe that improving the skills of local workforce and increasing the employability of people who live in places where we operate is a legacy that we should cultivate”, he says.

"The partnership aims to contribute to the socioeconomic development of Brazil. In this case, it’s driven by our need to hire skilled professionals in the regions where we have big projects”, says Carolina Righi De Stefano, Social Responsibility Manager.
