The special feature of this award is that the independent German training portal AUBI Plus GmbH from Hüllhorst, which carries out the certification process, asks current apprentices, former apprentices, and trainers about the company's working and learning conditions. The certification is valid for three years and then the company is tested again.
"For a company like Lenze, which competes for young, motivated school-leavers, it is especially important to have a reputation for being an attractive employer. So this renewed Best Place to Learn award carries great significance. At the same time, we see it as our duty to offer our young employees high-quality training with professional content in a modern ambience," emphasises Ralf Klemme, Director of Human Resources. "The Best Place to Learn award shows that we are succeeding."
47 trainers and skilled employees, 74 current apprentices and 48 former apprentices answered questions for this year's certification process. In comparison with three years ago, Lenze was able to significantly improve its result and it now carries the rating "very good". The categories that were assessed included such things as professional recruiting, fast integration into the firm, reliable planning of training, qualified trainers, and professional learning in accordance with central guiding principles.
"One additional point that no doubt makes Lenze an attractive employer is our global presence. Our apprentices also benefit from this. For example, during their training they can participate in project work at one of our international sites, which develops their professional, linguistic and intercultural competence," underlines Michael Beckmann, Haed of Education & Training.
The award as Best Place to Learn is not the first award that Lenze has received this year for its human resources management. In recent weeks, Lenze has been awarded the titles
Top Employer Germany, Top Employer Engineers and Top Employer Focus.
