(MAKRO Group Press) – A total of 31 young people successfully completed the Hydraulic Excavator operator course in the municipality of Apartadó in the department of Antioquia. This course is part of the alliance with Comfenalco Antioquia, related to the handling of yellow machinery.
The educational offer has a simulator component prior to the practice with real machinery and its main objective is to strengthen the technical capabilities of the new operators so that they can achieve a quick insertion in the labor market, due to the great demand for workers in this sector in the department.
It is important to highlight that in this group there was a significant participation of women, who have shown that handling heavy machinery is not only a matter of men, on the contrary, it means new employment opportunities in the sector where only 5% are women, and in particular, for the construction sector with only 3% of participation.
Grupo MAKRO’s commitment is to continue improving the lives of many women, offering them real and attractive opportunities for improvement in their communities and strengthening their leadership skills and example to future generations.
