CNH Industrial funds industrial training courses for 84 women in Sorocaba, Brazil

CNH Industrial offers 84 positions for women from local Sorocaba communities in the state of Sao Paulo in southeastern Brazil to gain SENAI professional qualifications. The SENAI or Servi̤o Nacional de Aprendizagem Industrial РNational Service for Industrial Training Рwas founded in 1942 and is one of the most important institutions in Brazil providing formal training for Brazilian industrial professionals.

Courses offered include: Logistics, Mechanical Engineer, Production Line Operator and Quality Inspector, the most sought after positions in the company’s manufacturing facilities. The qualification is awarded after 200-hour evening courses. To support the students in completing their vocational training, the company provides, in addition to the personal protective equipment required for the duration of the training, a monthly basic food package, transport, food, food during their studies, and a uniform.

The initiative is carried out as part of the federal program “Emprega Mais” (Employ More), which aims to promote training and employment in line with the requirements of the industry. Cláudio Costa, Human Resources Manager at the Sorocaba plant, said the company has chosen to make all jobs available to unemployed women to improve their skills and participation in this particular industrial sector.

“Not only do we want to create jobs for low-income women, we also want to dream of pursuing careers wherever they want and demystify the notion that a particular industry is only for men,” he said.

Emprega Mais’s focus on women reinforces the company’s CSR activities in education and will also help disadvantaged families with their social and economic recovery in the post-pandemic period.

“We share responsibility for the development of the communities in which we operate. We believe that through education we achieve several important social outcomes. By providing training opportunities for women, for example, we strengthen and open the way to financial independence and income generation. And that is also positive for the market, because at the end of your degree you will be able to work in many industries, ”emphasizes Erika Michalick, Sustainability Manager, South America at CNH Industrial.
