Melitta Group Annual Report 2022

Staff development


We attach great importance to continuous and challenging vocational training and the professional development of our employees, as this not only contributes to their satisfaction but also forms the basis of our future viability. In addition to our general internal and external training programs, we have therefore developed various dedicated programs in recent years. These include, for example, our trainee program or special offers as part of our talent management program. The Global Leadership Program was introduced specifically for managers and has already established itself as a successful development program. We are also preparing for the launch of the new career architecture, which will be rolled out in 2024.

Targets and KPIs

In addition to continuous and needs-based training and education, we systematically integrated sustainability-relevant issues and aspects, adapted as appropriate, into our staff development activities in 2022. These include the internal and external exchange of expertise, as well as the integration of a "Sustainability" trainee position into our trainee program. Moreover, we train sustainability experts in the various departments and integrate sustainability aspects into the vocational training and continuing education of our managers.
