Education and Further Training
The 50Hertz workforce is highly qualified and informed of current
developments. We offer our employees individually tailored further
training and relevant additional qualifications. Needs-based training
courses allow all our employees to further develop defined areas
of competence in a targeted manner. The average training costs per
participating employee came to about EUR 1,350 in 2017.
We endeavour to ensure that a sufficient number of potentially suitable
employees are available for all management positions at 50Hertz. To
this end, we have set up systematic succession planning. Thus, we can
preferably fill any positions that become vacant in work areas within our company internally. For this purpose, talents are identified and
promoted. This is done, for example, through programmes for young
professionals that we implement together with Elia. In addition to this,
managers at 50Hertz can participate in specific modules to develop their
own leadership skills. Since 2014, 94 employees have taken advantage
of this offer and worked through specific cases in practice across areas
and hierarchies from their everyday working life as managers.
We pay attention not only to the development of the individual managers,
but also to further shaping the entire management culture at
50Hertz together. An important basis for this is our regular employee
survey, “Say it!” which was conducted for the third time in 2017.
50Herz attracts qualified young talent through training within its own
operation and together with our partners, with a 24-month trainee
programme, dual study partnerships with universities and the
of Internships, diploma, bachelors and masters theses in
cooperation with universities and technical colleges. Additionally, 26
working students had been employed at 50Hertz in 2017.
Currently, 25 young women and men are completing industrial or
commercial training. The training quota thus amounts to 2.4 percent of
1,043 employees. In addition, four employees are currently completing
an interdisciplinary trainee programme.
