For the third time in a row, Dürr Systems received the maximum number of stars both for traditional vocational training and for their cooperative state university program. The vocational training offered by Schenck RoTec was also awarded the highest marks in both categories. HOMAG also performed very well. With four stars, the world market leader in woodworking machinery is also among Germany’s best companies for vocational training.
Although the fourth edition of the Capital study was conducted amid the corona crisis, over 660 companies from all over Germany took part in the survey. In order to determine the training standards, among other aspects, supervision and integration of apprentices, learning on the job and the use of innovative learning methods were taken into consideration.
Young talent secures the future
“Only with well-trained junior staff will we remain competitive and fit for the future”, observes Klaus Achtelik, head of human resources for the Dürr Group. “This involves not only the demands that we place on the apprentices. Reciprocally, apprentices also have expectations and demands that we want to meet as best as we can.” Therefore, among other things, the Dürr Group offers stays abroad and mentoring programs as part of the vocational training.
And of course, completing a vocational training or study program does not mean the end of learning opportunities. Even in the course of one’s further professional career, there are always new things to learn. That is why the Dürr Group offers its employees a comprehensive range of further training opportunities.
In Germany, the company employs a total of around 400 apprentices and cooperative state university students. They are spread over 13 different apprenticeships and twelve cooperative state university courses. Every year, approximately 100 young people start their vocational training at the German locations of the Dürr Group.
