12th training fair in Passau
Under the motto “Training secures the future” the training fair in Passau took place again this year. The aim was to inform young people about the training occupations in the region and to get them interested in certain occupations. Over 10,000 visitors followed this invitation. Around 110 exhibitors made their training occupations tangible and gave a direct insight into the profession. Hirschmann Automotive was also represented with a stand where current trainees reported on their daily work. A special magnet was our robot lady Pepper, who is programmed and supervised in an apprentice project at our Austrian headquarters. Pepper presented the apprenticeships offered at the company’s production site in Freyung. In addition to commercial training as an industrial clerk, these include above all technical professions such as tool mechanics and machining mechanics.
Strengthening the Freyung plant
For the first time this year, a training course for warehouse logistics specialists will also be launched. Over the next few years, Hirschmann Automotive intends to strengthen training at the Freyung site in order to successfully counter the shortage of skilled workers. The aim is to increase the loyalty of trainees to the company and to take them on permanently once they have completed their apprenticeship. To achieve this, it is essential to build up a strong employer brand in the region and to put the satisfaction of the employees first. This is one of Hirschmann Automotive ‘s declared goals.
