Aware of the growing requirements for skilled workers in the construction industry, Aboitiz Construction Inc., through the Aboitiz Group of Companies’ corporate social responsibility arm Aboitiz Foundation, seeks to help address this concern as it officially forged a partnership with the School of Knowledge for Industrial Labor, Leadership, and Service (SKILLS) to sponsor the training of 50 qualified Cebuanos.
SKILLS is the corporate foundation of Cebu’s Primary Group of Builders that provides technical vocational education to marginalized and unemployed youth and adults.
This collaboration is aimed at upskilling the scholars and guaranteeing that a pool of scaffolders will be available for employment by Aboitiz Construction to support its maintenance projects across the country.
“In line with our commitment to build a better future, we continue to help empower workers in the communities that we serve and provide job opportunities for many Filipinos,” said Aboitiz Construction Assistant Vice President for Human Resources Mylynne Cabanilla-Estupin.
The construction unit of the Aboitiz Group currently provides maintenance services for an industrial plant in Claver, Surigao Del Norte.
Likewise, the company is eyeing to pursue plant maintenance activities for AboitizPower’s Therma Visayas Inc.’s power plant in Toledo City, Cebu.
The Group’s Great Transformation focuses on capacitating its people towards the advancement of business and communities.
This year, Aboitiz Construction hired around 4,000 skilled workers who are now assigned to various sites throughout the country.
To secure growth, the firm has been focusing on projects in the industrial, infrastructure, and maintenance fields that are geared towards providing job opportunities for many Filipinos.
