First-Class Vocational Training

Faubel honored as model training company.

As part of the nationwide action week "Education Week ", the label specialist Faubel was rewarded for its exemplary training activities by the Korbach Employment Agency.

The award was handed over by Rainer Kesper, Head of the Schwalm-Eder branch office of the Korbach Employment Agency, who emphasized his appreciation for the commitment of medium-sized enterprises. It was Martin Kuge who, as a member of the Faubel's executive board, received the "Promotion of Young Talent 2018" certificate. "We attach great importance to making vocational training attractive. This doesn't only apply to its contents, but also to the working conditions such as adequate salaries and modern workplaces", Kuge explained. His strategy is to bind apprentices to Faubel in the long term. This is a key aspect in fighting skills shortage.

Insight into the workday

Together with four apprentices, HR Officer Heiko Fehr and Reinhard Kuge, Managing Partner, gave a presentation followed by a tour of the company. The apprentices described their daily work as industrial business management assistants, print media technicians, media designers or machine and plant operators. Rainer Kesper and Thomas Steinbrecher, Job Placement Officer at the Employer's Service of the Korbach Employment Agency, and Cornelia Harberg, Spokeswoman for the Employment Agency, gained insight into the inner workings of a sheetfed press and the production of printing plates.

For Heiko Fehr, the company's entire workforce also deserves credit for this award: "The whole staff is there to help our apprentices complete their tasks successfully. Thanks to their support, we can keep our training ratio well above the national average."
