iFood announces training to combat misinformation for all employees 

Instituto Vero was the partner chosen by the company to develop the project 

On May 25th, more than five thousand iFood employees will attend the lecture “Overview of Disinformation and Digital Communication” by Caio Machado, co-founder and executive director of Instituto Vero. The action is part of the measures adopted by the company to prepare its employees for the conscious use of social networks, an increasingly urgent topic on the current business communication agenda. 

In addition to the lecture, Instituto Vero will be responsible for developing online training that will integrate the professional development content track offered by the company for employees and suppliers. “We are hiring and bringing the Vero Institute to this work. We want to train our internal audience and also our partners to offer transparency and level information, ensuring alignment on concepts and responsibilities. As Vero's expertise is recognized worldwide, with high credibility and relevance, we go further. Our proposal is to do something bigger in the long term, we want to create a debate group and work by involving civil society to discuss the subject and bring other companies, institutions and thinkers to this debate, which is fundamental for society”, says Diego Barreto , Vice President of Strategy and Finance at IFood.
