CEO Georg Huber: “As a growing company in an industry of the future, we always build on young employees”
“As a growing company in an industry of the future, HUBER always builds on young employees – with their ideas, their commitment and their motivation,” says Georg Huber (CEO and Chief Financial & Human Resources Officer). “As the Management Board of HUBER SE, we are delighted that, despite the shortage of skilled workers, 25 young people have decided to take up a vocational training or dual study programme in our company this year. We are successful, globally active and continue to grow – that’s why we are building on the innovations and drive of young people so that together we can continue to work for the environment, the climate and the resource water.”
Welcome by HR department, works council and youth and trainee representatives
To make their start into the new phase of their lives as easy as possible, the HUBER HR department, the works council and the youth and trainee representation welcomed the trainees and dual students. After a company presentation and subsequent occupational safety training, the new trainees and dual students got to know HUBER better through a company rally before they were sent off into the first well-deserved after-work hours of their professional lives.
Induction days for the best possible start into training and studies
On the second introductory day, employees of the HR department inform about the steps of the training at HUBER, rights and duties of trainees and students, and present a “Trainee Etiquette”. Team-building measures are intended to strengthen the spirit of togetherness, while the trainee folder, a clear compilation of hints and tips, will bring order to the young employees’ plans already at the beginning of their training. Before a guided tour of the company headquarters in Berching-Erasbach, the trainees and dual students receive training in healthy working and behaviour from HUBER’s company doctor.
At the end of the third introductory day, a joint excursion awaits the young people: To give them the opportunity to get to know each other and the trainers and members of the youth and trainee representation even better, a canoe trip on the Altmühl river not far from the company headquarters is on the agenda, from the Kratzmühl Lake to Grögling. On the fourth day, the industrial trainees start in their specialist department, while the others receive an introduction to the IT systems before they, too, can start their everyday working life.
