Personnel development

our philosophy


Continued and foresighted personnel development is the Gauselmann Group’s answer to the present trends on the market: advancing digitalisation, increasing complexity and the ever more rapid pace of change. To enable us to also meet these challenges in future, our personnel development follows three central principles.

OUR PRINCIPLES



A FOCUS ON PEOPLE


As a competent point of contact within the corporate group, we attach great importance to good working relationships and promote our employees’ individual development through needs-driven concepts.



INNOVATION MEETS THE TRADITIONAL


We offer you a hybrid training and learning approach. This involves combining classroom training at our own training centre, Benkhausen Castle, with digital formats to ensure the best possible transfer of practical experience.



“WHERE THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WAY”


We empower our employees to assume personal responsibility so that they can play a role in shaping their own personal development. We create the necessary framework for this and advise our employees and their managers according to their individual needs.

COOPERATION WITH THE FHDW / GAUSELMANN INSTITUTE


Practice meets academic theory – the Gauselmann Institute is a cooperation between the Fachhochschule der Wirtschaft (FHDW) and the Gauselmann Group. This independent academic institution researches practice-relevant issues and initiates future-oriented advanced training programmes to strengthen sustainable corporate development.

WHAT EMPLOYEES THINK OF OUR SEMINARS


  • “As dual students, the Gauselmann Group offers us weekly English classes for the entire duration of our training. Where necessary, regular employees can also receive individual language coaching. I think it’s really cool that in our online course our trainers deal with topics that are relevant for our everyday tasks or teach us general business English. Like this we have the chance to continually improve.” (Louisa Knollmann, dual student)
  • “On the management training programme, our group developed a great team spirit. The instructor devoted individual attention to each participant and prepared the topics in a clear and timely manner. The contents were very varied and practice-oriented and we particularly liked the management approach, which places the focus on our employees.” (Wiebke Wendlandt, Head of Facility Management)
  • “Our trainer explained very clearly what change processes mean for each individual and described the integration of different perspectives in a practice-oriented way. The seminar provides managers with valuable tools for successful change management, which I also wanted to pass on to my employees.” (Markus Tiedmann, Technology Division Manager)
