Onboarding Line

START familiarization program

We prepare the entry of new employees at Brenntag with targeted measures to integrate them optimally into our company.

The START familiarization program sets the course for a successful start even before the employee begins work. To this end, the HR department, supervisors and mentors work closely together and support our new employees in all matters. This includes information brochures, checklists, regular feedback meetings, intensive training measures and, last but not least, the Onboarding Day for new employees.

Onboarding Day

The information day for new employees is an important part of the onboarding program. For a whole day, the new employees receive extensive information about all areas of the company - and at first hand.

The management presents the world market leader in chemical distribution and its company history.

Afterwards, various business units and the human resources team introduce themselves. The highlight is a tour of the Duisburg site, Brenntag's largest distribution center. There is also an opportunity to exchange experiences with other new employees.

Annual employee appraisal

At Brenntag, a standardized global employee appraisal is conducted annually.

Employee appraisals are an essential element of employee management and internal communication. The discussions are intended to provide an impetus for supervisors and employees to regularly engage in an intensive exchange of views on previous cooperation and mutual expectations.

The goals and tasks of the department are better understood; this results in the possibility of exerting a formative influence.

Through feedback, the employee is given the opportunity to get to know himself better, to improve the expectations of the superior and his own qualifications. Possibilities for professional development can be discussed and concrete measures with regard to employee-oriented qualification can be agreed upon.
