(Marchtrenk, October 12 2021) The education and further training of TGW's more than 3,800 employees worldwide plays a central role at the company. 177 young people are currently working as apprentices at the Upper Austria-based technology company, with 48 apprentices beginning their training this autumn alone. TGW offers them a wide variety of development opportunities, a stable environment and jobs fit for the future in an exciting industry.
TGW offers apprenticeships in Application Development, Design Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Operational Logistics, Industrial Business Management, Mechatronics (focusing on automation as well as production technology) and Metallurgy. The up-and-coming specialists rotate between departments and thus familiarise themselves with various aspects of each job.
In the modern training workshop, they can gain experience under the guidance of proficient trainers. In addition, apprentices who have reached legal age have the opportunity to gain practical experience working on customer projects throughout Europe.
During a 2-day kick-off workshop, the apprentices and trainers get to know each other and lay the foundation for successful cooperation. "We direct our actions according to the principle of encouraging and challenging. We also build on individual strengths and offer a variety of development opportunities according to our philosophy 'Focusing on People – Learning and Growing,'" says Harald Schröpf, CEO of the TGW Logistics Group. "The fact that many past apprentices have since gone on to assume responsibility in management roles at TGW just goes to show that an apprenticeship offers outstanding career opportunities."
In addition to the training in the specialised departments, TGW also offers a diverse range of social development opportunities: from language classes to personal development and even tips for an ergonomic working environment and healthy eating. Monthly performance-based bonuses serve as an incentive for achievement.
As a foundation-owned company, TGW is a reliable employer: the intralogistics specialist can never be sold. Two-thirds of profits stay in the company and are reinvested—in our employees, our infrastructure and the innovations of tomorrow. On top of that, at least ten percent of profits go to the foundation's charitable projects, which focus on comprehensive personal development of children and young people.
