Vocational Training Management

In the competition for qualified employees, the Fresenius Group wants to be in a good starting position. It therefore devotes a lot of attention to vocational training. We trained more than 2,300 young people in 35 different occupations at our German locations in 2012. We also put more than 70 university students through twelve degree programs in cooperation with dual institutions of higher learning.

We reinforced our marketing in and with schools in order to interest more young people in an apprenticeship or dual degree at Fresenius. Our campaign is equally devoted to students and their teachers. We offer students plant visits, informational days, application guidance, and internships; and we offer teachers several courses under the aegis of the SchuleWirtschaft (school business) working group.

We initiated the Fresenius Training Sponsorship Award to celebrate our 100th anniversary: starting in 2013, we will give awards to the best trainees and dual degree students in four different professional groups within the Fresenius Group. We will support them for a considerable time as their careers progress.

Our training management is bearing fruit: The growing pool of highly qualified applicants certainly shows that we are an attractive employer not only for recent high-school graduates, but also for interns and students.
