CNH Industrial is offering 84 openings for women from local Sorocaba communities in Sao Paulo state in south eastern Brazil, to achieve SENAI professional qualifications. The SENAI or Serviço Nacional de Aprendizagem Industrial - National Service for Industrial Training – was founded in 1942, SENAI is one of the most important institutions in Brazil that provides formal training for Brazilian industry professionals.

Courses on offer include: Logistics, Mechanical Technicians, Production Line Operatives and Quality Inspectors, roles that are most in demand at the Company's production facilities. The qualification will be awarded following 200-hours of evening courses. To assist the students in completing their professional training, the Company will provide a monthly basic food parcel, transport, food, meals during the course, a uniform, in addition to the personal protective equipment necessary for the duration of the course.

The initiative is carried out through ‘Emprega Mais’ (Employ More) federal program, that aims to promote training and employment in accordance with the sector’s requirements. Cláudio Costa, Human Resources Manager at the Sorocaba facility explained that the Company has chosen to make all vacancies available to unemployed women with the objective of increasing their qualifications and participation in this specific industrial sector.

“In addition to creating job opportunities for low-income women, we want them to be able to dream of having a career wherever they want, demystifying the idea that a specific industry is a place only for men,” he said.

Emprega Mais’s focus on women reinforces the company's educational CSR activities and will also assist disadvantaged families in terms of their social and economic recovery in the post-pandemic period.

“We are co-responsible for the development of the communities in which we have operations. We believe that through education we achieve several important social outcomes. By providing training opportunities for women, for example, we empower and we open a path to financial independence and income generation. And that's also positive for the market, because at the end of the course they will be able to work in many industries,” highlighted Erika Michalick, Sustainability Manager, South America at CNH Industrial.
