STILL's class of 2019
STILL has welcomed more than 50 new trainees from its German locations at a Welcome Day at which they were given some insight into their future professional fields and the production factory.
Thorsten Hofmann, CFO of STILL, stressed that "the great interest in training with STILL opens up future prospects - for the younger generation and for us as a company, because the high innovative power of our brand is due mainly to the enthusiasm of our thoroughly well-trained junior staff".
"Our new training centre that opened in Fürth in May is another important success factor, because in addition to the Hamburg training centre, it gives us a second learning venue for our branches in Germany."
Training appropriate to the future is not only a corporate responsibility for STILL, but also the most efficient strategy to overcome the shortage of skilled, trained staff, he says.
This year, STILL's in-house training will lead to qualifications for a total of 205 trainees in a variety of skilled technical and commercial professions.
The company has been recognised for its training initiatives, receiving the Top Employer in Germany 2019 award from the Top Employers Institute for the eighth time in a row.
