Qualification at TRUMPF
TRUMPF – the innovation promise. This is our key promise to our customers. We can only keep to this by continually ensuring that all of our employees are qualified in the long term.
The personal development of our employees is important to us, which is why we offer a set framework at TRUMPF. Managers and employees discuss development targets individually on a regular basis in standardized qualification meetings. The focus here is on our employees' suggestions and ideas. This enables employees to help shape and drive forward their personal development themselves. We nurture our employees and their strengths.
Having employees with the optimum professional qualifications enables TRUMPF to master new challenges as a high-tech company. Whether it is with technical seminars, further training in IT, quality management, languages, or on company-specific topics and products – TRUMPF supports its employees with innovative approaches to learning and a comprehensive offering, with a focus on targets and needs.
Specialist knowledge is complemented by interdisciplinary knowledge. TRUMPF offers a variety of options for training on specific methods in interdisciplinary areas. This may be topics relating to communication, the development of intercultural skills, or knowledge of health issues.
Target-group specific development
We nurture our employees and develop their skills. In doing so, we base our approach on the different needs of the various target groups, offering tailor-made development and qualification programs.
We provide targeted support to prospective managers from within the company. We identify talent as part of our process for analyzing potential and construct careers paths together with our employees. For this purpose we offer targeted support programs, tailor-made modules relating to the topic of management, and interaction with our top management level.
At TRUMPF, even experienced managers have the option of continuous development in line with their individual requirements. Our development opportunities in this area cover topics relating to economics, strategy, and management. Here we work with renowned national and international business schools. Additional options such as mentoring programs, individual coaching, and targeted adoption of project responsibility or job rotation in other departments, at other locations, or abroad round off the development opportunities.
In addition to the classic management career path, TRUMPF also offers alternative routes. As we are a high-tech company, experts and project and program managers are extremely important in developing our products and catering to the needs of the future. Tailor-made development and qualification modules take into account specific requirements.
Together with our departments, we selectively analyze the specific needs, taking current trends into account. Based on this, we develop function-specific qualification programs.
We encourage exchange across our locations and offer various opportunities to gain international experience. Foreign postings or international project work give our employees the option to work abroad for short or long periods, to develop intercultural skills, and to foster a global network. Working abroad is also an important element of our management development.
