This is how you start with us

A period of personal training

We take the time to inform you in depth about your department, your site and your company. You will receive an introductory programme so that you can feel professionally and personally comfortable as quickly as possible.

A personal contact

A personal contact from your department will be by your side throughout the training period.

Exchanges with other employees

With a view to social and value-oriented integration, we regularly organise introductory events for our employees that provide information on staff representation, occupational safety and quality management. In this context, it is also possible to exchange ideas and get to know employees beyond your own team. By the way: even in these times of the coronavirus, we want to interconnect our employees as much as possible. Even if no face-to-face event is possible, we do everything we can to bring you together digitally!

Going digital

The training period is complemented by various online courses on topics such as food safety and IT security. And we've already been able to digitise part of our extensive course curriculum on leadership, communication and self-management – more courses will follow.
