Jesús Gonzalo, a business manager like his father, has been working in our team for six years. As analyst of the Contractor Management Department, he makes sure that our suppliers provide their employees with all the work benefits they are entitled to by law.
He was taught at home that people grow through work. That is why Jesús got his first job at the age of 16, while he was still in high school, even though he did not need to work.
Together with his assistant, he supervises that our contractors’ employees are not paid less than the national minimum wage and are provided with insurance and all the rights established by the Peruvian State.
There are about 5,000 employees in all our concession area. How does he detect failures? Through on-site inspections. He leaves suit and tie at home and puts on a helmet and jeans. He approaches employees and asks them how they are doing and if they are given work benefits. From his office, he conducts monthly controls of the documents submitted by contractors. Based on the audit results, he recommends the pertinent penalties.
Jesús Gonzalo likes his job, as he feels he protects thousands of people just like Wolverine and Spiderman, heroes he identifies with. As his friends at Enel know that, he received two Funko Pop action figures for his last birthday.
As his mother is a nurse, he studied medicine for a year until he knew his thing was management. With postgraduate studies at Centrum and the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, he also holds a master’s degree in Business Management from his alma mater: the National University of San Marcos. What was his first job at 16? Brand promoter at events, a job he got after some time in the world of modelling.
