In search of more diversity in the workforce, Hydro will open registration this Monday (31/01) for the trainee program “Viva o Seu Talento 2022” focused on hiring people who identify with the female gender. Considering that women make up 52% of the Brazilian population, Hydro wants to form teams that increasingly reflect society. To put inclusion actions into practice, the company developed a program based on the pillars of courage, care and collaboration. Registration will be open until March 7th and can be done through the website traineehydro2022.com.br.
Aiming at inclusion, the insertion of female people in qualified vacancies in the labor market contributes economically to society. A survey by McKinsey Global consultancy pointed out that the world GDP could grow by 13 trillion dollars by 2030, beyond the projected, if efforts to enter the productive sector are accelerated.
“Hydro believes that a more diverse team is critical to solving complex challenges and creating the innovations needed to support the organization's ambition to be a profitable and sustainable industrial leader. The implementation of this trainee program focused on the talents of people identified with the female gender is part of a series of actions that we have developed to promote diversity, in line with the guidelines of our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging program”, says Nelia Lapa, director of Human Resources at Hydro.
Selection for the program will be carried out in four stages with language tests, behavior, dynamics and online case, in addition to the interview that can be carried out in person, following all safety and protection protocols against Covid-19. Candidates selected for Viva Seu Talento 2022 will be able to work at the plants of the Alunorte refinery, in Barcarena (PA), at Hydro Paragominas, at the Hydro offices in Belém (PA) and Rio de Janeiro (RJ), and at Hydro Extrusion, in Itu (SP), Utinga (SP) and Tubarão (SC).
Lasting two years and focused on professional development, the program will offer the tools for immersion of trainees in their area of expertise; mentoring with a skills development plan: leadership, organization, behavior, technical. They will also have the opportunity to get to know all of Hydro's business units in Brazil.
About the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIP) program:
Hydro's Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIP, in Portuguese) program is yet another company commitment to promoting positive change in society. With the belief that a company needs to promote actions of inclusion, globally, Hydro aims to increase the representation of female employees to 25% by 2025. In Hydro's selection processes, all opportunities are open to people with disabilities and rehabilitated by the INSS. The program also seeks to transform the company's culture by integrating people with disabilities (PCD), of different races, ethnicities and LGBTQIA+.
