Running for over 30 years, Infineum Brasil has a well-established and very successful trainee programme. The evidence for this success is clear, with nearly 50% of colleagues at our site in Rio de Janeiro having started their Infineum career as a trainee.
As part of the programme, the HR Team in Brazil recently held an integration day, providing trainees and apprentices with the opportunity to learn more about the organisation by exchanging knowledge and sharing their individual experiences.
We asked a recent group of trainees to comment on the integration day:
Lucilia Lins (HSE Trainee) said: “I would like to thank HR for the initiative; it was an amazing day of integration and learning. Not only learning about Infineum, but also about my fellow trainee colleagues. The seed planted in this event will certainly be carried forward by us!”
Thyago Castro (Procurement Trainee) said: “I will start by saying that I loved the day! I think it was an excellent idea to learn about other departments from the trainees’ point of view, and also to get to know more about each other. “
Bruna Castro (Process Trainee) said: “I would like to thank you for being so open and for embracing my idea of the visit, that was initially very simple, but with your excellent organisation, it became something far bigger than I thought. It was a very rich morning for all the trainees. We have since gathered as a group so that we may get to know each other better and exchange experiences.”
Alana Barros (HR Trainee) said: “It was a unique experience to have this meeting and a visit to the plant with all the other trainees. It was a very productive day of great learning.”
Felipe Souza (Sales and Marketing Trainee) said: “I would like to thank the whole HR team for promoting this activity. The major goal was very well achieved, which was integrating people from different areas and creating an opportunity to know each other better. “
We also took the opportunity to ask some of our current colleagues who started out as trainees about their trainee experience, what it was like, and what made them want to stay on as full time colleagues at Infineum. Follow this link to read a selection of their answers.
