Ecopetrol: Ecopetrol Group generated more than 81,300 jobs in the first half through contractors


A total of 81,385 people worked exclusively on works and projects carried out by the Ecopetrol Group in the country through contractors in the first half of 2022, which represented an increase of 18% compared to the same period of the previous term.

This result, which contributed to the economic reactivation of the regions, is due to the increase in operations and investment plans by Ecopetrol, mainly in project activities, works and engineering, maintenance, plant shutdowns and support services.

The Central region (which includes operations in the departments of Santander, Norte de Santander, Antioquia, Boyacá, Cundinamarca, Bolívar and Cesar) registered the highest number of occupations, with a total of 27,413 workers (34%).

For its part, the Eastern Andean region (Puerto Gaitán, Huila, Putumayo and Tolima) added 19,351 workers (24%); followed by the regional Orinoquía (Meta, Casanare and Arauca) that reported 15,569 workers (19%). In Caribe (Bolívar, Sucre, Magdalena and La Guajira) there were 13,187 employments (16%) and in Bogotá 5,865 workers (7%) were reported.

So far in 2022 (January – June), 17,937 people with difficult labor insertion were hired, which means an increase of 28% compared to the first half of 2021. Of the jobs generated, 14,973 correspond to women, 117 people with disabilities, 1,369 first-time jobs, 1,135 from ethnic groups and 343 victims of armed conflict.

Ecopetrol, through its supply chain, develops an inclusive employment relationship policy in contracted activities and encourages the prioritization of local labor, in order to ensure that its suppliers generate personnel selection processes free of any discriminatory practice.

“We are proud to contribute, through our contractors, to the economic reactivation of the regions in which we operate by generating jobs that contribute to the well-being of thousands of families. We will continue to promote that our allies privilege local labor in the work they carry out at our facilities and promote inclusive bonding,” said María José Mantilla, a specialized professional from Ecopetrol’s Supply Vice Presidency.
