The training year at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) has already begun. The company announced that 99 people are undergoing their training or dual study courses at one of its four sites in Germany in 2019.
The digital transformation at Heidelberg and the vocational training there go hand in hand, with digital content becoming increasingly important in various areas and also making the training program more attractive.
Virtual learning content and the use of cutting-edge virtual reality technologies are now standard in many occupational profiles.
Heidelberg also regularly reviews the occupations for which training is available and adapts these to requirements. By now also offering training for budding IT specialists, the company is responding to the demand caused by the digital revolution.
According to Heidelberg, three young people from the new intake for 2019 will be starting out on this career.
The company’s biggest training site, which currently has a total of 242 trainees and students, including 75 from this year’s new intake, is Wiesloch-Walldorf. Once again, three of the five participants in the collectively agreed foundation year have been accepted to start training as future warehouse operators in the new training year.
Heidelberg currently employs a total of around 340 trainees and students at its Wiesloch-Walldorf, Brandenburg, Amstetten, and Ludwigsburg sites. On account of the company’s demographics, almost all graduating trainees are being offered employment.
