Lifelong Learning

Lifetime learning in the Hager Group

Nothing these days moves as fast as technical progress. And to make sure we have no concerns about future market demands and can grow with our client needs, we make sure that all our employees are equipped with cutting edge technological knowledge, regardless of age and how long they have worked with us. That is why consistent competence and career management is an integral component of our corporate philosophy and is part of our articles as a European Company (SE).

In essence this means “the establishing of Hager SE is based on the conviction that the economic success of a company is closely bound with the involvement of its employees.” Therefore “the Hager Group expressly professes its commitment to the following objectives:
1. The promotion of equal opportunities at all levels of the company...
2. The active support of the lifelong learning of its employees.

Investors in People

When it comes to the advancement of our employees, we comply with the principles of the ‘Investors in People’ (IiP) management system. This strives to pursue an ongoing improvement in performance for all employees and with it, an advancement of the whole company. In regular one-to-one and group dialogues, all employees are encouraged to think entrepreneurially and take on responsibility. On an equally regular basis, the effectiveness of these investments on the overall performance of the company is evaluated. Should a measure be considered successful, it is shared as a best practice by the whole Hager Group.

Investors in Partners

The Hager Group is no lone wolf – it’s a team player. And when it comes to an exciting match, the game becomes most exciting when teams come from the same league. So not only do we train our employees, but we also encourage our clients and business associates to play an up-front role with them in the market. This is how:
  • the company provides a broad range of workshops on diverse topics at both national and international levels
  • in such a way 3000 electrical engineers take part in training in France every year, 10000 in Germany and 3000 in Switzerland – from apprentices to master electricians.
In a word, life is about learning and when it comes to our job, we define it as ‘continually working towards our true potential’.
