Even in the times of the Covid-19 pandemic, Rhenus is also focusing on young people who are motivated to start their careers. While observing all hygiene and distance regulations, Rhenus training officer Sophia Doukas and the training officers from two other Rhenus companies welcomed 16 new apprentices to the company's headquarters in Holzwickede on August 4.
Faced with the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and cautious economic forecasts, many companies have reduced their training capacities. Not so the Rhenus Group: The family-run company is again offering 166 young people the opportunity to start their apprenticeship at one of the largest logistics service providers in Germany this year. This will mean that a total of around 750 apprentices will now be working for Rhenus.
“We are not only fulfilling our responsibility as a company that provides training: Our apprentices are an important pillar within Rhenus and we cannot imagine life without them. So we are continuing to put our money on committed newcomers who will receive excellent training from us even in challenging times," Rhenus board member Egbert Bernsmeister emphasizes.
This is also confirmed by Yannik Renn, a dual student for business administration. “I felt I was in very good hands right from the start and can only advise everyone to do their apprenticeship with Rhenus. You get intensive support right from day one – and the work is great fun!”
The Rhenus Group is a leading logistics service provider with global business operations and an annual turnover of EUR 5.5 billion. Rhenus has business sites at 750 locations worldwide and employs 33,000 people.
