We promote employability
Through the Mahou San Miguel Foundation, we promote training in order to improve the employability of youth at risk of social exclusion. We also undertake volunteer actions that, thanks to the collaboration of our employees, contribute to improving the environment and quality of life of the groups we work with. In 2018, we dedicated €2.4 million to the activities of the Foundation, 20% more than the previous year.
We reward actions to promote youth employment
A total of 62 entities, including large and small companies and third-sector organisations, participated in the 2nd Mahou San Miguel Youth Employment Promotion Awards, in collaboration with the Excellence in Sustainability Club. The awards recognised the work of L’Oreal, El Mandela, the Telefónica Foundation and the Castilla y León Mental Health Foundation for their commitment to insertion of young people in the labour market.
Mentoring to share knowledge
The second edition of the mentoring programme of the Mahou San Miguel Foundation concluded with the participation of 66 mentors, both current and retired employees of the company in Madrid and Burgos, who helped the young people in the fourth edition of the “Creamos Oportunidades en Hostelería” programme on their road to finding a job.
We create opportunities in the on-trade sector
Last year, 159 young people participated in the fourth edition of our training programme “Creamos Oportunidades en Hostelería”. The initiative, aimed at promoting labour integration of youth at risk of social exclusion in the on-trade and tourism sectors, achieved 100% job placement in the Dual Vocational Training branch and 85% in the Professional Certificate.
This programme, which was implemented in Barcelona, Bilbao, Burgos, Granada and Madrid, incorporated some changes in 2018, such as the launch of the first Talent Study Grants. A total of nine study grants to which €17,000 were allocated for all those who want to continue their training in hospitality and tourism. Additionally, a Job Exchange was set up through which 30 former students are receiving training and can access job opportunities.
