With the Emsland Group’s new trainees having already started their training at its individual locations on 1 August 2018, 20 trainees and one-year interns descended on Emlichheim so that they could get to know each other at the Group’s main plant.
Over the next few years, these committed young people will be part of an internationally operating company and receive practical training in the following skilled occupations: chemical laboratory worker, warehouse logistics specialist, chemical technician and industrial clerk. A dual course of studies in food technology is also offered.
After a welcome speech by Personnel Manager Mr Norbert Albs, the first day began with various games to get to know one another in the Move Inn, a so-called “overnight sports experience world” located in neighbouring Nordhorn. The guests from the Emsland Group’s individual plants wound down the first day over a relaxing dinner together.
The following day, a visit to the main plant in Emlichheim was on the agenda. The trainees were given a comprehensive tour of the plant and thus gained an idea of its many processes and production sequences. The subsequent tour of Emsland Innovation Germany, the innovation centre of the Emsland Group, also proved to be interesting. The guests got to take a closer look at the various areas of application of the manufactured products. For many, the possibility of producing products on a laboratory scale (such as those found in food retailing) was particularly impressive.
They then joined the training officers to go bowling and play laser tag. Together with the management of the Emsland Group, the day then drew to a successful close over dinner at Pier 99.
After enjoying breakfast together the next day, the trainees said their goodbyes and made their way back to their respective training locations.
We wish everyone continued success and enjoyment in their upcoming tasks as part of the Emsland Group.
