Trainee-Onboarding at THIMM

20.12.2018 Doris Roddewig, head of training at THIMM Verpackung, informs about the expectations regarding onboarding: "The start into training should neither be a jump in the cold water nor be served on a silver platter. We demand independence, thinking along, taking on responsibility and much more. But how do you suddenly become agile after school?"
Doris Roddewig, Head of Training THIMM Verpackung

This is where onboarding comes into play: THIMM has already reduced the comfort zone at the start of the training compared to previous training years and demands to be active. Various modules such as speed dating with the training officers, patent days with practical tasks or the creation of video sequences for new topics are part of onboarding. The heart of onboarding: THIMM lets the trainees develop creative business ideas and set up a start-up.

At the Innovation Award 2018 of the district of Göttingen the process "Creative Business Ideas of Apprentices within their Onboarding" was voted among the TOP5. The Innovation Award is organized by Wirtschaftsförderung Region Göttingen GmbH. Here products, services, processes or business ideas are awarded annually. You can find out what onboarding looks like in detail in our video.

Roddewig provides information about onboarding and sums up: "Turning the onboarding concept completely upside down in order to better integrate our mindset and corporate philosophy was the right decision. We also noticed that being active with the trainees led to much more fun with the tasks."
