URV Masters students visit ELIX Polymers facilities
On 14 December, a group of students on the Master’s degree in Strategic Communication in the Risk Society course at Rovira i Virgili University of Tarragona visited the ELIX Polymers facilities.
The aim of the visit was to provide information on the company’s activity and the important role of communication, with a special focus on the operations of the ELIX Communications Department.
Noelia Vázquez, HR Director, welcomed the students before they began their tour of the various areas of the facilities, such as the chemical and technical laboratory, control room, plant, and the main building, where the company’s technical staff explained how the centre works, much to the young students’ interest.
They also had the opportunity to see first-hand the work of the Communications Department thanks to Alejandra Arréllaga, Head of Internal Communication at ELIX and the students’ teacher on the “Corporate Communication and SMEs” course, and Sandra Castanedo, who was a former student on the same Master’s course and later undertook an internship at the company. She is now part of the Communications Department team.
Student visits such as this one are part of the company’s commitment to training and interinstitutional relationships aimed at supporting universities, and fall within the ELIX Polymers corporate social responsibility policy.
