90 young people started their training this year at leading logistics company Gebrüder Weiss in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, meaning that the company has now taken on more apprentices than in the previous year, says reports.
And that despite the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has made recruiting new people more difficult.
Gebrüder Weiss has been relying ever more on digital solutions and channels than conventional face-to-face events (such as training events) to get young applicants interested in the logistics industry and to engage them in a dialog.
The logistics company also scores well with its good reputation: as a training company and a reliable employer.
“Job security is a very important factor for young applicants when deciding where they want to work,” says Monika Mandl, Head of Human Resources Development at Gebrüder Weiss.
“Gebrüder Weiss stands for sustainable economic success and has done so for generations.
“The current situation with the coronavirus has given the company the opportunity to prove once again its ability to withstand crises and to continue on its course of growth”.
Gebrüder Weiss is currently training a total of 254 apprentices at 33 locations throughout Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
