THE CEMENT PLANT IN KORKINO WELCOMES A TOUR AS PART OF THE COMPANY’S PROFESSIONAL ORIENTATION ACTIVITIES
In October 2019, the plant arranged a facility tour for children from the kindergarten No.37. Twenty-two kids from the pre-school class visited the town’s core enterprise. The event was dedicated to the project called ‘In the world of fascinating professions‘.
With the scope of the tour, children of the plant personnel visited the production facilities, too. The tour program included learning about the cement production cycle starting from the Mining department; safety requirements were observed without fail. In view of the young age of visitors, the plant had developed a special format for the event. At the end of the visit, the plant canteen prepared delicious meals and presents for the guests.
"The company is actively involved in professional orientation activities", Sergei Kalinin, HR Director of SLK Cement, explained. "An integral part of these activities are tours to our facilities for educational institutions and familiarization of the new generation with the production. It is our ambition to teach children from the early age to respect worker’s jobs and the work of cement makers. Maybe, in the future, some of the kids that were among the visitors today will join our company".
The staff of the kindergarten No.37 have thanked the cement plant for their socially conscious position and cooperation with the educational institution.
"The idea to visit the core enterprise of Pervomaiski town has come to us when we realized that children were not familiar with ‘blue-collar jobs", Galina Stepanova, the teacher, said. "The plant personnel readily responded to our request and arranged an excellent tour. The kids enjoyed it a great deal. Many of them were happy when they saw at the site the bird houses they had made in April within the scope of the Month of Safety and Health. Afterwards, some parents contacted me and sent their words of gratitude to the plant, too, for such an informative event".
Last year, within the scope of its professional orientation activities including the Month of Safety and Health, the plants of SLK Cement arranged 15 tours for children of different ages. They involved 222 students of educational institutions located in the company’s regions of presence. Besides, the plant conduct trainings for the young generation designed to develop the skills of persuasion and presentation.
