BRENNTAG AS AN EMPLOYER
At Brenntag, our goal is to create an environment in which employees are passionate about their job, where they can fully realize their full potential and enjoy their work.
DEVELOPMENT OF OUR EMPLOYEES
The performance and growth, and thus the further development of our employees, are extremely important to us, which is why we invest in them in a variety of ways. We train our employees at work, we give them challenging tasks, support them and offer a large number of training courses and further training worldwide. When designing and implementing our development measures, we always take into account the current position of our employees in their career trajectory.
For students, we offer internships, giving them the opportunity to work on specific projects and assignments and gain valuable experience. For graduates, trainee programs are available in many countries so they can combine their theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience while gaining insights into the many different areas of our business. There are integration and induction programs for our new colleagues to make sure they get off to a good start at Brenntag. As our early career development actions are often derived from specialization and focus, we ensure that our employees are always up to date in their respective functional area.
Our employees are crucial to our success. That is why it is important to us that those of our employees, who are responsible for managing other people, perform this leadership professionally across all levels of our organization. To ensure that our leaders can do their job, we promote their leadership skills through training at local, regional and global levels.
For example, Brenntag designed a tailor-made executive development program, which was developed in collaboration with a renowned business school and tailored to the individual requirements of Brenntag's executives. Thanks to the experienced professors and an advanced curriculum, the participants receive valuable knowledge that they can apply directly in their day-to-day business. The program provides the participants with the necessary skills to successfully master the current and future challenges of Brenntag. Participants improve both their overall management skills and their overall leadership skills. It also gives employees from different regions a great opportunity to share their ideas and thoughts and build a network that spans the entire organization.
