    Customised additional training for staff members and managers

    The high qualification of our employees and managers is a decisive factor for the success of Krones. Therefore, the human resource development department is permanently keeping an eye on additional training and support for all employees. 

    Every employee has individual skills and areas for further skills developments. This is why  the human resource development department is concentrating on measures that are customised precisely to the needs of the individual participants. The professional skills as well as the social skills and methodical skills are supported here. Altogether, the offered seminars comprise more than 450 topics. These topics include IT and language courses just as much as special field seminars as well as communications and method training. In addition to external specialists, also our employees carry out training sessions. Having internal knowledge, they can pass on this valuable know-how directly on other colleagues. In addition to the traditional training, we also offer eLearning modules thus providing the option of doing individual trainings without the pressure of time and location.
