The company discloses what goals it has set and what measures it has taken to promote the employability of all employees, i.e. the ability of all employees to participate in the working and professional world, and in view of adapting to demographic change, and where risks are seen.
Our industry is characterized by high dynamics and an environment that is subject to constant change. This also has an impact on our company. Our employees must be able to react to these new challenges, which requires constant further development. Through our continuing education program, we offer our employees the opportunity to further strengthen their skills, encourage them to try new things, learn from mistakes and take initiative. Based on our employee development mission: "We empower our employees to achieve the best business results by equipping them with the right tools to develop their skills and knowledge in line with cosnova's culture and values", we offer a wide range of training opportunities for all employees. The objectives of the employee development in 2018 were:
- Establishment of a uniform feedback and value culture in the company. To this end, two mandatory training courses were held for all employees with the aim of reaching 100% of the employees. This goal was almost completely achieved in the year under review and will of course be continued on an ongoing basis for new employees.
- Establishment of English as the corporate language. This goal was pursued with the help of internal language courses, but also with the stipulation to maintain internal communication and documentation in English. These measures are to be regarded as ongoing.
- "Leadership": this objective was supported by various offers from the internal learning catalogue
In view of demographic change and the future shortage of skilled workers, both the recruitment and motivation of new talent as well as the vocational training of young people are an important part of our personnel policy.
