The place where the best people want to contribute with passion, where they want to exploit their full potential and where they have fun……. This is important for us at Brenntag.
Development of our people
Developing our people is important for us as we want them to perform and grow and therefore we invest in our people. This is done in a number of ways. We train on the job, give them challenging assignments, coach and have a large number of training courses and other measures in place across the globe.
By designing and implementing our development measures, we take into account where people are in their careers. Internships are available for students giving them the opportunity to work on specific projects and tasks and gain valuable experience. For our new colleagues we have on-boarding programs in place to ensure they have a good start with Brenntag and feel at home. For graduates in many countries we offer trainee programs where you can combine your theoretical knowledge and practical experience while at the same time getting an insight into many different aspects of our company and how to interact. Our early career measures are often derived from specialization and focus. Therefore, we make sure our people are state-of-the-art in their respective functional areas. Here we have many training programs in place at different levels in our organization. Furthermore, we also address personal skills so our people can develop themselves in these areas.
Our people are critical for our success. Therefore, we want our people who lead other people - at all levels within our organization - to lead them professionally. To make sure our leaders are ready for their leadership tasks, we train them in different aspects of leadership at local, regional and global level.
A customized Executive Development Program has been put in place that has been designed in cooperation with a renowned business school specifically for the unique needs of Brenntag’s executives. With experienced professors and a sophisticated curriculum, participants gain valuable know-how that can be applied directly to the company’s business. The program prepares the participants to handle Brenntag’s current and future challenges successfully. The participants enhance their general management skills and comprehensive leadership abilities. Furthermore, the program provides a unique opportunity for people from different regions to exchange their ideas and thoughts as well as to build a network across the Brenntag world.
