Vocational training at Heidelberg is among the best in Germany; the daily newspaper ‘Die Welt’ published the results of the evaluation at the end of August.
Of the 4,000 companies surveyed across all sectors and regions, Heidelberg’s training program was rated among the best, with the rating ‘very attractive’. Only around 800 companies have achieved this top rating. The survey was conducted by the business psychology ranking agency ServiceValue. The ‘Germany’s Best Training Companies’ seal of approval is an independent quality certificate that measures the attractiveness of vocational training.
“With this result, we see our efforts to provide solid, attractive, and future-proof vocational training strengthened,” says Rainer Haus, Head of Organisational & Personnel Development, Heidelberg.
“Good vocational training is the key to the future, both for the young people and for the company itself, which is getting a new generation of highly qualified staff,” explained Rupert Felder, HR Manager, Heidelberg. “Right at the start of the new training year, the award was a good signal for the new intake of trainees. On 1st September this year, 122 young men and women began their training or dual study program at one of the company’s four sites in Wiesloch-Walldorf, Brandenburg, Amstetten, and Lud-wigsburg.”
