At the presentation, the president of CANACINTRA Coahuila Sureste, Everardo Padilla Flores underlined the existing linkage between the Saltillo business sector and the new generations incorporated to the work life.

“The industrial business community is continuously requiring workforce, therefore the importance of the support from the National Employment Service and from the Ministry of Labor, this is an important event,” said Padilla.

“It is important to continue working the turnover part we have in the companies and for that we offered 2,700 vacancies, which are divided in four levels: the employee level, professionals, technicians and operator level, the latter where more places were offered,” said Octavio Ramirez, COPARMEX counselors at the Coahuila capital.

Meanwhile, Jorge Tafich, president of CANACO Saltillo, explained that unlike other regions in the country where there are no vacancies, in Coahuila there are many jobs, “this translates in growth opportunities for all families.  Let us remember that we are in one of the States with more job formality and Saltillo is confirmed as one of the most formal in the country,” he described.

Payments of up to 40,000 pesos in positions for employees, operators, technicians and professionals which were settled at applicants availability, thus was informed by Nazira Zogbi, undersecretary of Labor, who also announced the strategy from the Ministry to avoid personnel turnover.

“Right now a situation is given that in Coahuila there is more offer than demand, mainly in the southeast region and northern part of the State, obviously turnover is a very common behavior when there is too much job offer, and that is why we are working together with businessmen to decrease personnel turnover by designing strategies such as transversal training or in ‘soft’ skills,” he explained.
