Employees from Portos do Paraná will participate starting this Monday (24th) in the training program in strategic management of ports, offered jointly with Fundación ValenciaPort, a Spanish institution that is a world reference in the sector. The 40 port workers selected work in different activities, in the administrative and operational areas.
“We are strengthening our staff, investing in qualification and training. We believe that a more efficient port is only possible with excellent professionals. We participated in the three editions of the Master in Port Logistics offered jointly with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, in addition to having students taking courses in the ports of Le Havre and Israel”, highlighted the director-president of the public company, Luiz Fernando Garcia.
This is the first edition of an in-company course, a personalized training model that works on the specific points that Portos do Paraná wants to focus on. “This program is part of our cooperation with Fundación Valenciaport and is intended to offer techniques, tools, skills and knowledge specific to our needs”, he adds.
Classes will be divided into two modules, in April and June. In the first, topics such as the logistics chain, relationship with the port community, energy transition, good environmental practices and human talent management will be addressed.
In the second, students will receive content on strategic management, port planning, systems management, information technology, port-city relations and social responsibility of ports.
For the director of international business at Fundação ValênciaPort, Miguel Garin, Paraná takes the lead when investing in the qualification of its employees. “Having a highly qualified team is a market differentiator and a competitive advantage. Empowering teams allows them to make better decisions and take on the challenges of the future. There is no smart port without smart people,” he points out.
According to the Personal Development coordinator at the public company, Henrique Pires, the course continues the employee training project. “The intention is to have a body of servers with market knowledge, exchanging experiences with ports that are world references. The choice of public servants was based on their management profile, who already participate in commissions and key projects”, he says.
Most of the participating employees are public servants and half of the vacancies were occupied by women. “I felt recognized and I am super motivated to apply this knowledge in my daily life. It is important to have this vision not only of Paranaguá, but of what has been done in other ports around the world”, evaluates Rúbia do Rosário, a port agent who works on the Engineering and Maintenance Board.
