Our staff are one of our most important assets and we support our employees by providing them with various training opportunities, seminars, and conferences to help them advance in their roles and personal growth (the average training days/year/employee are 5 days). We aim to increase the training volume to an average of 10 working days/year gradually over the next 5 years. Further, we encourage our employees to take part in job rotation possibilities across the company’s different units through cross functional moves. This is how we further support employees career development and widen their scope of knowledge, while at the same time developing a strong base to ensure coverage at an event of labor shortages.
