In Kruševac’s 14. OKTOBAR, which operates within the “Czechoslovak Group”, twenty young people received a labor contract. In cooperation with the National Employment Service, the shortage of labor, first of all, is compensated by retraining.
Food technician Danijel Milosavljevic from Krusevac began a two-month pre-qualification in 14. OKTOBAR. He successfully passed training for operators on CNC machines and today he has a lot of reasons for satisfaction. “I did not expect to get a diploma and a job after two months,” says Daniel.
In the same day, another 19 young people were hired. Milos Panić says that the company’s conditions are excellent and that he hopes that he will remain so. He likes business and is pleased.
“Today, I have had the opportunity to express my satisfaction and how happy I am that young people want to work and this is good news for 14. OKTOBAR, the city of Kruševac and the whole of Serbia. We have invested a lot to improve this situation, which we found, and that next year, we would have been the first year in which we can expand our business, “says Daniel Pribičko, general manager of 14. OKTOBAR.
At 14. OKTOBAR, there are currently 250 employees. The skilled labor force is still missing and cooperation with the National Employment Service will continue.
“As you know, there are not enough specific personnel, primarily in the production sphere, primarily in the metal and chemical industry, not to mention textile, which will be our focus for the next year,” said Predrag Markovic, director of the NIS Krusevac Branch.
Miljan Ćupurdija, Human Resources Manager of 14. OKTOBAR adds that already in the end of this week, in cooperation with the National Employment Service, they will start a training program for blacksmiths, firefighters and machine operators on universal lathes.
In this company, they plan to employ another 150 workers by the end of 2019.
