Ecuador Ministro Trabajo

Quito, Ecuador, August 24, 2020.-Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, was visited by the Minister of Labor in Ecuador, Andrés Isch. The visit is part of the company’s efforts, in collaboration with the Ecuadorian National Government, to promote job creation and contribute to a safe and inclusive economic reactivation. 


As part of its commitment to the development of Ecuador, the company has worked in collaboration with the National Government on several initiatives to create jobs across the country. One of the most recent projects consists of an agreement with Red Socio Empleo whose goal is to support and improve work by creating new job opportunities in a fair and inclusive work environment.


During 2019, through an agreement with Red Socio Empleo and Arca Continental’s Recruiting and Training Center, the company offered training in commercial techniques to 243 participants and hired 117 people who are currently working for the organization.


During the visit to the facilities, Minister of Labor Andrés Isch had the opportunity to talk with employees and executives to better understand the security protocol that has been implemented as part of what is considered to be the new normal in the country. He stated: “Our priority is to generate more opportunities that improve training and the participation of our citizens in the labor market. We are working not only to generate income and jobs, but also to give hope to the Ecuadorian people. We are fostering a fair working relationship, in which everyone can work under the best conditions and ensuring the protection of their rights”.


The company emphasized that it is operating under rigorous safety measures, which include: continuous clean-up and fumigation of both facilities and trucks; taking the temperature of employees as they enter the plant, and the obligatory use of gloves and face masks, as well as constant hand washing. Over the course of the contingency, the company has delivered more than 1,600,000 safety kits to its employees, and the occupational medicine team has been following up on and monitoring employees on a daily basis. We also carried out a support effort that consisted of visits from specialists and coaches, workshops, and a permanent communication campaign for employee safety, motivation, and well-being.


With actions such as these, Arca Continental reaffirms its commitment to economic reactivation and the safety of its employees in every territory where it operates.
