STAUFF welcomes new trainees

Training and promoting young talents as a foundation for the future: With an action day on 4 August 2014, Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG welcomes four new trainees and at the same time announces the company’s successful certification as "Outstanding Training Company 2014"

For four young men and women, 1 August 2014 marked the start of a new phase in their lives: Fiona Busche (industrial administrator), Christopher Antoni (warehouse logistics specialist) and Oliver Korsten (machine operator specialised in turning and milling) have begun their training at Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG, while Jannis Gärtner will be facing the challenges as a budding industrial administrator in combination with a course of studies to become a Bachelor of Science.

At the action day Heiner Schmitz, Managing Director of Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG, welcomed a total of 18 new and existing trainees, who are situated at the head office in Werdohl-Ehrenfeld, the logistics centre at Neuenrade-Küntrop and the manufacturing site at Plettenberg-Ohle. In his welcome speech, Mr Schmitz emphasised the importance of practical training and promoting young talents as a foundation for the company’s future and success. After the presentation and a communal lunch, the group visits the three STAUFF plants in the surrounding area and various exercises were on the agenda, which gave the participants the chance to get to know one another better, recognise their shared potential and grow as a team.

Throughout the action day the young trainees were accompanied by Niclas von Seidlitz, Global HR Generalist who is also responsible for staff development within the LUKAD group of companies. Mr von Seidlitz is also the first point of contact for enquiries or information on the possibilities of vocational training at Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG and its associated companies.

At the same time, the company announced that it once again was awarded the "Ausgezeichneter Ausbildungsbetrieb" certificate of excellence in training, and was thus rewarded for its ongoing efforts in the area of industrial training over the last few years. This was the result of anonymous surveying of STAUFF trainees in Werdohl, Neuenrade and Plettenberg (Germany) and analysis of training statistics by independent business psychologists. In 13 of 14 assessment categories, the company achieved best results, in particular when it comes to career opportunities for the future, the high appreciation by the colleagues, their active knowledge transfer and the willingness to involve trainees in work processes.

The aim of the award is to give young people neutral, reliable and credible guidance to help them choose where to complete a traineeship or apprenticeship. At the same time it offers companies the opportunity to draw attention to their efforts and achievements in the area of vocational training and to market their offering in a targeted way.
