Training in 2016 included the implementation of efficiency and cost optimization measures in keeping with company strategy, although not to the detriment of training quality. The measures primarily entailed the following:
- Focusing training on critical aspects
- Optimization of the number of hours of training/training activities
- More courses taught by in-house instructors
- Creation of an in-house factory to generate online contents
- More online training
- Focus on training at the work station
- Increasing use of informal training methods
Analysis of hours of training per professional groups shows a reduction in Executives, Technical Managers and Technicians, since it is here that we have done most to implement the efficiency measures.
Training for operatives and subordinates, mainly male staff at refineries, mainly focuses on safety programs, which have not been reduced and their methodology is unchanged - their basic component is training at the work station.
