The Electricians School for Women aims to encourage female inclusion for working in a male-dominated profession. The selection process includes a general knowledge test, behavioral assessment and a personal interview.
The course will last about three months, in full-time format with morning and afternoon classes, from Mondays to Fridays, with possible Saturday classes as well. The Electricians School will start in an online format, exercise classes will be on-site and all attendants will receive transportation and meal allowance.
Neoenergia Pernambuco's initiative to create an exclusive group for women aims to expand employment opportunities for the female population, contributing to gender equality in the market and, after training, enabling candidates to be hired or become part of the Company's talent pool to compete for future job positions.
Neoenergia has already held 69 classes at the Electricians School in Pernambuco, trained 1,655 students, 136 of which are women, and hired 1,298 professionals trained through the initiative, 99 of which are female. These professionals, in addition to wages, are also entitled to the following benefits: private retirement plan, Profit Sharing Plan (PLR), health and dental plan - Bradesco Saúde (co-insurance), food/meal allowance, day care allowance (children up to 9 years old), life insurance and partnership with secondary/higher education institutions.
In the first quarter of this year, the company initiated classes in four mixed classes, in Recife, Paulista, Cabo and Caruaru in the mixed model, with men and women. The goal is to continue hiring students who complete the course.
