In today’s world people feel that their lives are getting more and more complicated. And they are right: technology and society are developing quickly, globalisation is increasing and competition is getting tougher.
We believe that the only way to overcome these challenges is by working together: by every single one of us continuing to learn and by investing in the innovative capacity of our company on a daily basis.
It was against this background that we founded the Weidmüller Academy in 2003. Here we are able to bring together all the activities for qualification and knowledge building in the company as well as share our knowledge with external institutions, universities and partners.
We work at a regional, national and international level – taking globalisation into account. We are keeping a close eye on the challenges of the future and changes in the global markets. With this in mind, we continually work with staff to identify their training needs and to develop suitable offers.
Dr. Eberhard Niggemann, Head of Weidmüller Academy
Life-long training and continuous knowledge building are amongst our key concerns. At the same time, we are
attracting the next generation of talent to our company through interesting projects for school students, attractive training offers and close collaboration with universities. We promote and demand openness and creativity, team spirit and an enthusiasm for technology.
Another goal of the Weidmüller Academy is the transfer of knowledge. In order to maintain and strengthen the innovative abilities of our company, we have established an extensive network: universities, institutions and technology companies are amongst our partners.
We also consider our customers as partners: we have developed specific training courses which give them the opportunity to find out about the latest technologies and our products, and how they can be used.
The success of the Academy is a validation of our strategy: we have won several awards for our wide range of services over the last few years. However, recognition from within the company and our network is even more important than awards from others. We can see this from the ever increasing demand for our offers.
We are growing continually – in Germany and abroad. In 2011 we founded the Weidmüller Academy
Asia to build expertise in China and the Asia-Pacific region. A local academy not only gives us greater proximity to our staff and customers, but also to the next generation of potential talents, regional trends and requirements.
