How are new employees trained?
The Intelligent Training System (ITS) is our modular training programme for new employees.
We call the training programme ’intelligent’ because it is divided into modules and time frames that are engineered to suit an employee's individual qualifications and experience exactly. The structure and success of an individual programme are checked regularly so that, if necessary, adjustments can be made quickly.
ITS is composed of the elements:
- Initial training
- Study of technical literature, documentation and CBTs
- Product introduction by our product specialists
- Internal further training measures
- External further training measures
- Training projects
- Training on the job
The ’Mentor’ is a key element of the system. A Mentor is an experienced member of staff who accompanies the new employee during the first six months in the company and acts as a first point of contact for any queries. He/she will give advice on all issues that arise during initial training, supervise the training programme in conjunction with the Human Resources Department and the superior in question and report on an employee’s progress.
