The German dual education and training system enjoys a very good reputation around the world. To keep it this way, HR managers and policymakers alike are dealing with an important question: How does digitalization influence existing job profiles and their training content? Stefan Haas, head of the “Training 4.0” initiative
ZF already launched the “Training 4.0” project two years ago. Among other things, the project members worked on identifying the vocational training careers of the future and determined which new content should be integrated into the existing training.
ZF sets high training standards for its employees so that the company can continue to offer its customers utmost quality worldwide. Because digitalization and global networking have an impact on the factory floor, today's skilled workers need additional language skills and intercultural competence. Being able to deal with digital media is also part of the toolbox.
For this reason ZF is investing heavily in new and updated training concepts as well as in state-of-the-art equipment for its training centers.
