Dürr: Dürr Group once again among the best German vocational training companies

Bietigheim-Bissingen, October 26, 2022 – The German-language monthly business magazine Capital has once again confirmed that the Dürr Group ranks among Germany’s top companies for vocational training. In its sixth study, “The best German companies for vocational training”, it even placed several Dürr subsidiaries at the top of the categories “Training” and “Alternative training” (cooperative training program). HOMAG and Teamtechnik received the highest rating of five stars in both categories. Dürr Systems and Schenck RoTec each received four stars in the “training” category and five stars each in the “work-study” category.

“The training of young people is a major challenge for us. We are therefore delighted that our training offer is once again recognized. Thus, we strive to open up future prospects to our apprentices and work-study students from the start of their professional training. and consult them and support them in their career development. All of these efforts are based on our belief that this is the right approach to address the shortage of skilled labour,” emphasizes Klaus Achtelik, Human Resources Director of the Dürr Group.

This year, a total of 751 companies participated in the Capital study and the talent platform Ausbildung.de. The categories analyzed include the support and integration of apprentices, the qualification and promotion of trainers, as well as the use of innovative training methods such as digital media, and the integration of the technical capacities of apprentices. “Learning within the organisation” also played a major role, with due consideration given to learning methods, success tracking and training plans. Another major concern this year was the apprentices’ prospects for success. Participating companies were asked to provide information on retention and attrition rates of their apprentices as well as training and starting salaries, and to describe career opportunities and apprenticeship options.

In Germany, the Dürr Group currently has around 472 apprentices and students from cooperative universities. Nearly two-thirds of them work for HOMAG, the world leader in woodworking machinery. Each year, around a hundred young people begin their professional training or their cooperative university course at the German sites of the Dürr group. They can choose from nineteen apprenticeship programs and thirteen cooperative studies courses.
