Hellmann welcomes over 160 new apprentices
In the year of the company's 150th anniversary, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics is welcoming over 160 apprentices from 13 nations in Germany. After the apprentices were welcomed on site in 26 of the German Hellmann branches on August 2 and given a first insight into their new work environment, a Germany-wide digital kick-off event took place yesterday.
One highlight of the virtual event was influencer Sidney Hoffmann, who stands for his hands-on mentality and is thus a popular role model for the apprentice generation. Moreover, he could also shed light on what is necessary for a successful career for the new colleagues: motivation and passion for what you do.
"Logistics is an extremely important industry for all of us – the Corona crisis has highlighted this yet again. However, many people don't even know how exciting, diverse and international the industry is. That's why I'm delighted to be able to take part in Hellmann's trainee event and show the new employees how important their job is. Thanks to their passion, they make a real difference for all of us," said Sidney Hoffmann.
"Last year, with all its challenges, made it clear to us once again how important an agile and motivated team is. Our trainees form a very important part of the Hellmann team and I am very glad that we are once again welcoming so many new colleagues this year. Now more than ever, it is important to us to offer career prospects and attract young talent to Hellmann," says Sven Eisfeld, Managing Director Germany, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
