Attracting Talent and Promoting Education
At Ravenswood, our team worked to solve a shortage of skilled candidates by partnering with a local college, West Virginia University Parkersburg. The plant welcomed 20 local students into a two-year program called “Constellium Track of Electrical or Mechanical Trades.” After graduating with associate degrees, they will hopefully pursue their careers at Constellium.
At Muscle Shoals, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of North Alabama (UNA) in 2020, offering our employees a 20% discount on all undergraduate and graduate degree programs. As an official Corporate Philanthropy Partner, the plant is making an annual contribution to UNA’s Engineering Technology Student Support Fund, which provides resources to students based on need.
In 2021, Constellium Issoire signed a Master Class agreement with the Lycée Sainte-Claire Deville d'Issoire and the UIMM1 Auvergne to host a professional maintenance baccalaureate class at the factory. Over the course of a week, our employees gave high school students a tour of the different aluminium processing professions.
