Training the next generation at MM Karton

08.08.2017 - Sustainability, Company / Mills

We see training the next generation as an investment in young, motivated employees. Our apprentices take on a central role in a broad working environment with diverse opportunities for development. They are the future strength of our company, and therefore extremely important.

Apprenticeship and education as a future opportunity
Only with the best employees will we be able to continue to provide the best performance and fulfil or exceed the expectations placed on us. We are glad that MM Karton is currently offering 53 apprentices an opportunity for the future. The range of apprenticeships is broad and addresses different talents – from office manager to paper technician. 
During the apprenticeship programme, our trainees take part in a dual system that combines practical experience in the mill with theoretical education at a vocational school. Our “Young Professionals” programme offers a training track that goes far beyond traditional apprenticeships. The young employees are not only trained to become competent skilled professionals, but also receive support with their personal development. In order to facilitate their entry into working life and integration into the company, all participants are assigned a sponsor from a more advanced training phase to support them with their experience. The results achieved to date tell us we are on the right track.

Apprentice video from the Austrian Frohnleiten mill
And what do the people say who are immediately involved with this topic? Our apprentices at the Austrian Frohnleiten mill have presented their experiences with training and education in a video, giving other young employees a personal glimpse of their training world. Here are some representative voices:

Jessica Kern (chemical laboratory technician trainee) and Kerstin Liebmann (industrial manager trainee): There are a lot of internal education programmes to improve our “hard skills” as well as “soft skills”. There is the MM Academy, and we have English classes once a week. If you really work hard and truly want to exceed, you will go far.

Markus Bauer (electronics technician trainee): What I like best is that you work in many different areas – there is variety and diversity. Philip Nardon (metals technology trainee) adds: You gain new perspectives everywhere; I have worked in different departments, for example with the pumps, the controls, with hydraulics, and with welding.
