Hansgrohe AG is committed to the company's junior staff.
Schiltach, 01 September 2010 Competition for qualified, trained workforces is growing. According to a statement by the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce, 70 percent of companies already have issues in finding the right qualified workers for their positions vacant. Specialist for baths and for the sanitary sector, Hansgrohe AG envisages the search for suitable employees becoming increasingly more difficult, especially in technical fields. Based in Schiltach in the Black Forest, Germany, this company is taking a stand against the emerging lack of qualified workers with recruits from its own ranks: for example, 30 young women and men will be starting their training at Hansgrohe AG on 1 September. As such the company is continuing its trend from the last few years in 2010 with a trainee quota of more than seven percent and a total number of 134 trainees in 23 trades. “We stand by our commitment to training as an enterprise that is strong in the field of innovation and has a substantial range of manufacture; practical training of specialists represents an investment in our future viability,” affirms Siegfried Gänßlen, CEO of Hansgrohe AG.
