In October, Grupo Chaparral offered a program of human rights training in its companies Agricola Chaparral and Agroindustrias Tombell.
These trainings were conducted by the Sinaloa State Human Rights Commission (CEDH) for Grupo Chaparral’s administrative, operational, and field staff.
The human rights training focused primarily on the rights of migrants, which are fundamental to ensuring a respectful and dignified work environment for them. It also included information on access to safe working conditions and fair wages.
Regarding the Dignified Treatment training, it was discussed how the work environment is essential for the well-being of all employees, and how the company should promote a culture of mutual respect, where workers are treated with dignity and respect. The importance of peer support was also mentioned, as well as how solidarity contributes to creating a more harmonious work environment.
The objective of the training on harassment and bullying was to raise workers’ awareness of this topic and how to identify the types of harassment to deal with such situations. The emphasis was also placed on establishing clear protocols for reporting incidents and receiving support, promoting trust in the company to report any incident.
In the agricultural industry, a more equitable and sustainable work environment is encouraged by prioritizing good treatment and adhering to human rights.
