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.
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.
