Perspectives

Individualised Job Training Programmes

Finding one’s way around in a new job is not so easy at first. In order to make the start in our company easier, each new employee is given an individualized job training plan. It guides the employee in the first phase and helps him or her to quickly get up to speed on tasks, internal processes and procedures.

In the framework of multi-departmental introductory events, new employees get to know colleagues from other departments and start to build their own networks. Through systematic training on the job, new employees get a personalized introduction to the project landscape. This method has proven itself in the past as the most effective and successful way. All project related activity is supported by colleagues and management as well as by qualifying training events.

Career/Development Opportunities/Continuing Training

For an innovation-oriented company such as Volke, continuous professional and personal development of our employees and management is an important contribution to ensure our long-term competitiveness.

Only someone who knows where he´s knows what to do for the next step. For that reason our management personnel take time in feedback discussions to clarify with their employees where their strengths, weaknesses and potential for development lie. In the annual employee review, the work performed is evaluated in conversation with the superior, and the goals and measures for continued development are defined. These can include training on-or off the job, seminars and classes, but also the acceptance of new areas of responsibility.

Corporate Culture

New developments need people who think without boundaries and work together to advance the right ideas. This only works with clear structures, levelled hierarchies and in constant dialogue.
