On August 1, 44 trainees, dual students, and annual interns started their careers at Kesseböhmer's plants in Dahlinghausen and Bohmte. External trainers and responsible instructors offered the new colleagues a varied program focusing on an initial orientation in the company and team spirit.
Kesseböhmer offers young recruits a well-organized start to their careers. It is characterized by a mix of team-building measures, company tours, product training and small tasks at the future workplace. To this end, the company organized a cross-occupational introductory week together with the sprout Azubi-Akademie, a program of axth GmbH from Georgsmarienhütte. "We want the trainees to feel at home at Kesseböhmer from day one," explains Sarah Schnittker, commercial trainer at Kesseböhmer. "With the introductory week, we lay the foundation for a successful apprenticeship."
As one of the largest and most versatile training companies in the region, Kesseböhmer produces fittings and storage systems for the kitchen and furniture industry, goods presentation systems, displays, shelving and shop-in-shop systems for the retail trade, ergonomics technology components for the office furniture industry as well as installation systems for the caravan and supplier parts for the automotive industry. The company currently employs around 2,700 people at its sites in Bad Essen and Bohmte.
Continuously & future-oriented
Currently, the Kesseböhmer Group offers more than 200 young people award-winning training. In addition to the "Top Ausbildung" quality seal from the Osnabrück - Emsland - Grafschaft Bentheim Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the company received the "Best place to learn" training seal from the independent AUBI-plus GmbH in Hüllhorst as recently as July 2022. It certifies, among other things, a particularly good quality of the training staff and the successful integration of the trainees in real operational and business processes.
Kesseböhmer will continue to rely on skilled workers from its own ranks in the future. The application phase for the start of training in 2023 already began at the end of July. In addition to the numerous industrial, technical and commercial apprenticeships, the company prepares students for professional life in a dual study program. The courses include business administration, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and business informatics.
