EFKO Group and Belgorod State Technological University named after V.G. Shukhov determined ways of collaboration
28 January 2019, Belgorod region, Russia – EFKO Group, one of the largest agro-industrial holdings in Russia and EEU countries, determined ways of collaboration in 2019 with Belgorod State Technological University named after V.G. Shukhov (BSTU). Common projects will let the structures prepare and adopt young specialists to modern working conditions.
EFKO Group for many years has developed a partner program with leading universities across Russia paying special attention to working with universities of Belgorod region. For example, collaboration with BSTU helped in understanding of the problems that appear both from the party of the university and the holding in process of preparation of specialists for different sectors.
One of the key problems is a gap between specialty of a graduating student and requirements of the modern labor market towards young specialists. To solve this problem EFKO Group realized just in 2018 a lot of events that got students acquainted with production workshops and different services. Besides, the company organized Career Days, participated in Vacancy Fairs showing employment opportunities and presented success stories of the graduates who are already employed. Such meetings covered more than a thousand students and were very effective.
Senior students from Institute of economy and management and Institute of energetics, IT and management systems of BSTU already now are proving themselves in company’s projects directed to further employment.
«For us it’s important that talented students had a desire to grow and develop in sectors of food products producing, IT, instrument engineering and, of course, innovations. In the company there is a program of guaranteed career promotion that lets young specialists without any working experience obtain not only unique knowledge, skills and a steady income but also an opportunity to become a support of their families», - Irina Shaposhnik, leading PR-specialist of the company, noted.
Many EFKO Group’s employees have already entered the project of the university – «Successful Shuhovets» that for many years has maintained continuity of generations in BSTU. The following graduates are good examples: Alexander Tarasov (graduated in 2011) – today is chief of department of promising technologies in «EFKO management company», Alexeevka office; Evgeny Manin (graduated in 2012) – deputy chief electrician; Evgeny Kankin (graduated in 2014) – deputy chief technologist. Number of such examples in the company is growing year after year.
Fast social and career growing of young talented people is mainly connected with dynamic development of company’s business. For example, graduates can try their hand in company’s offices and plants in Belgorod region and Voronezh, participate in projects in Taman and the Republic of Kazakhstan. Each of them has the same opportunities to get an internship or a job offer.
For EFKO Group it’s important that students could value knowledge given by the university and put into practice skills given by the company and, of course, love their activity. Only that way, together, it’s possible to achieve success in work. In the near future, the company and the university will continue to collaborate even closer. Thanks to joint efforts of education and business it’s possible to create a whole cluster of young talented professionals in Belgorod region.
