Starting their career at Kesseböhmer: 58 trainees, students and interns are welcomed

At the beginning of August 2018, 58 young people completed their induction week at Kesseböhmer in Bad Essen, Dahlinghausen. For the new trainees, students on dual work and study programmes and the annual intake of interns, one of the main aims of their first few days at work was getting to know people. This was all about building the initial team spirit among the new trainees and getting to know their way around the company, which employs more than 1,600 people at the Bad Essen and Bohmte sites.

Working with the sprout training academy, a programme provided by B&B GmbH from Georgsmarienhutte, the trainers and experienced trainees offered their new colleagues a diverse induction programme. “A successful start lays important foundations for later training,” explains Angelina Janz, HR Manager and Head of Commercial Training Kesseböhmer. This is why the company offers its young entrants a well-organised introduction to working life featuring a mixture of team building exercises, tours of the company, product training and the first small tasks at their future workplaces.

As one of the largest and most varied training companies in the region, Kesseböhmer produces fittings and storage systems for the kitchen and furniture industry, shop-fitting and display systems, shelving and shop in shop systems for retailers, ergonomic components for the office furniture industry as well as installation systems for the caravan industry and supplied parts for the automotive industry.

The group is currently offering more than 160 young people good and varied vocational training. They also continuously pursue the goal of offering them a job for the future with attractive prospects after completing their training so the group can constantly acquire and promote skilled workers from their own ranks. As well as training for industrial, technical and commercial occupations, this year Kesseböhmer is also preparing students of business studies, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and information systems for their future careers on a dual studies and work programme.
