Successful start at Harro Höfliger
Twenty-six apprentices have started their career at Harro Höfliger.
In September, twenty-six apprentices started their working lives at Harro Höfliger. Over the next few years, they will learn professions such as industrial engineering, electrical engineering for automation technology, and mechatronic engineering and one candidate has decided to do an apprenticeship on industrial business management.
As the final exam for the previous year was postponed, the start of this year has also been postponed by two weeks. At the beginning of October, the DHBW students and the trainees following the Ulm Model will start their first week of training as well. The eleven young professionals have decided on different specializations.
The DHBW Students will learn the theory in the subjects Mechanical Engineering, Business Informatics, International Technical Sales Management and International Production and Logistics. The trainees following the Ulm Modell will start with a shortened apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic or electronic technician, following on to a bachelor´s degree in mechanical or electrical engineering at the University of Ulm University.
Uwe Amann, Head of Human Resources, warmly welcomed the next generation of employees: “We are pleased to be able to offer many young people training as a basis for a successful professional future again this year. Despite the challenges that the current Corona crisis brings with it for companies all over Germany, Harro Höfliger continues to have a high need for skilled workers and is therefore investing in the next generation of professionals. We are already offering places for the start of training in 2021.”
The traditional two-day get-together was cancelled because of the Covid conditions but will hopefully take place next year.
Vocational training has a long tradition at Harro Höfliger. Since 1981, only six years after the company was founded, training has been an integral part and over 10% of the workforce is in vocational training or studying alongside work.
