The study, entitled Germany's best companies for training 2018, surveyed the training officers of 20,000 companies – from 93 sectors – with the largest number of employees.
Professor Werner Sarges, a specialist in personnel diagnostics from the Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg, provided the scientific support for the study, which focused on five aspects with varying weightings: the success of the training (24 percent), structural data on the training (24 percent), remuneration (16 percent), training ratio (20 percent), and additional offerings for trainees (16 percent).
“Ziehl-Abegg is not only a leader in the manufacture of fans for ventilation and air conditioning technology, but also lift drive motors,” said members of the jury. The training concept, which was praised by the Heilbronn-Franken Chamber of Commerce and Industry, also impressed the jurors with its foreign deployments.
Peter Fenkl, chief executive of Ziehl-Abegg SE added: “The nationwide study in Germany testifies to our long-term commitment to qualified training. I am pleased with the result for our trainers who are highly committed to providing the next generation of skilled workers with the best possible start to their careers.”
Of those surveyed, a total of 745 companies were able to maintain their rankings.
