Employment Continues to Grow at Guacalito de la Isla
In September, Guacalito de la Isla was featured in La Prensa regarding the number of jobs that have been created during the design and development of the community. To date, over 1,200 jobs have been created, including full time staff members and contractors, to bring the community to life.
Aligned with Pellas Development Group’s corporate values, 60-65% of Guacalito’s new staff reside in the neighboring towns of El Coyol, Las Pilas, and Juan Davilla, which are communities that have had marginal opportunities for employment in the past. Since ground has broken at Guacalito de la Isla, new opportunities have been created for job-seekers within these communities that require a wide variety of skill sets, including construction, maintenance and security. As the community grows, additional opportunities will arise including hospitality service at Mukul, the 5-Star Boutique Hotel that is currently under construction.
The Guacalito de la Isla team has been fully dedicated to engaging the communities surrounding the construction site, creating long-lasting, meaningful opportunities for growth and future sustainability. Our business model will continue to include plans for future job creation as the community is completed and opens to residents and visitors.
