Learning and personal development are essential success factors for a positive corporate culture. The skills and competencies of our employees are crucial for profitable growth and lasting success. For this reason, we want to further modernize the learning culture and promote self-directed learning even more strongly. Therefore, the CHT Group invested almost 1 million EUR into further education development in 2020. For the targeted and individual promotion of all skills we offer versatile measurements and tools for the further development and education of our staff:
English as a corporate language
CHT has set itself the goal of establishing English as the corporate language for the entire Group. For this reason CHT cooperates with an external partner who runs an outstanding digital English school. In this school English can be learned via self-study, in group courses and in individual training. In 2020, more than 100 employees from all over the world received a one-year license for this online English school as a pilot group.
Regular staff development meetings are held to determine their status and to discuss and evaluate personal performance and further development opportunities.
This versatile support ranges from initiatives in the work place up to tailor-made personnel development programs. In 2020, the formats of employee interviews were modernized, partly digitalized and established worldwide to the entire CHT Group.
Further offers include:
