Highest-scoring graduates of the year meet Jens Fiege in Greven
Greven, 14th December 2016. The five highest-scoring trainees in 2016 at Fiege Logistik have been honoured at System Headquarters in Greven. 84 young people completed their training at Fiege in 2016. Tatjana Golbik (Greven), Maria Babina (Hamburg), Ali Buran (Dortmund), Robert Beier (Dresden) and Maximilian Eden (Greven) reached the highest scores in their respective final exam taken before the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). A reception was held for them and their training supervisors in Greven, where they met with Executive Board member, Jens Fiege and Martina Schlottbom from HR, to accept a gift.
Diverse development opportunities
“You are the five highest-scoring graduates out of 84 trainees this year. That is something you can be proud of”, said Jens Fiege. The Executive Board member of the family business emphasised: “We need young, motivated, good employees like yourselves. People who think and tell us where we can make improvements.” Fiege provides ample opportunities for personal, but also for professional growth: “If you feel like seeing something different, touch base with your supervisor. There is always the possibility to work at a different location in another town. Or even in a new sector. Whether long-term, or for a one-off project.”
Fiege Logistik still boasts high retention rates. Of the 84 graduates, 57 per cent were taken on. And even the five highest-scoring trainees will continue their employment with Fiege. Ali Buran, a warehouse clerk, has extended his training by a third year to become a warehouse logistics specialist. Tatjana Golbik, who had the highest score in her final IHK exam, joined Accounting and intends to continue her education in this field to become a business management graduate. Robert Beier, Maximilian Eden and Maria Babina, who could not join the tribute due to illness, will also remain with the company.
105 new trainees
The next class has already started its training at Fiege. Fiege recently added 105 new trainees to its workforce. Starting 14th December, 267 young people will undergo vocational training at Fiege – a figure that exceeds the number of graduates from the past three years. “This is a wonderful development; we last had over 100 trainees in 2011 “, says Bettina Pick, personnel developer at Fiege.
Fiege trains young people in 15 different industrial and commercial trades. “We train people even beyond classic logistics-based professions: for example, as IT specialists or insurance salesmen”, says Bettina Pick, and adds: “It may even be a little unusual that we offer vocational training for a career as a body and vehicle mechanic at Fiege tec in Reckenfeld.” Also, 27 young Fiege employees are participating in an Integrated Degree Programme.
“This diverse offer for young people would not be feasible without the many dedicated training supervisors within our Group”, said Jens Fiege during the graduation ceremony and thanked the training supervisors who had travelled alongside the five highest-scoring IHK graduates. The instructors Wolfgang von Dein (Hamburg), Andrea Redenius (Dortmund), Bettina Pick (Greven) and Susann Mosig (Media Logistik Dresden) also received a gift.
