Building a strong team spirit
Working independently and as a team are two decisive components of the training concept offered by all five product brands of the Wirtgen Group. Trainees taking part at the AZUBI techdays not only get to know the products manufactured by Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm, Kleemann and Benninghoven – the three-day event also promotes essential soft skills such as communication, the ability to work in a team, a sense of responsibility, and personal initiative.
Enthusiastic feedback from all sides
‘I enjoyed the construction project most of all’, said Robin Veth, currently training as an industrial mechanic at Vögele. ‘It was great to see how fast the job got done. That was simply a brilliant team event.’ At the same time, Thomas Bayer and Oliver Laible, training supervisors at Vögele, were particularly pleased to see the outstanding engagement and commitment shown by the young colleagues. ‘The Wirtgen Group has already staged this event with enormous success at several of the group’s factories. Here at Vögele, we also made sure that everyone who took part could experience our passion for the world of road construction and feel the spirit of togetherness within the Wirtgen Group’, said Laible. The trainees attending the event were not only from the technical divisions, but also from the administrative departments of the brand headquarters. ‘Together with the realistic challenges and the great team events, this mix ensured that the techdays were a unique event’, says Laible.
