Bilfinger Network and Bilfinger Academy
In order to offer colleagues great career prospects and work towards a strong middle management, we have started active Talent Management. Besides plenty of advancement and training opportunities across Bilfinger with the Bilfinger Skills Center, we have also developed an international training pyramid. At the base of the pyramid is the ‘Bilfinger Network’.
The Bilfinger Network consists of a combination of young operational managers and ambitious staff colleagues from different departments. Activities aimed at broad development are organized for the participants of this network. For example, LEAN training and visits to work sites. In addition, attention is also paid to specific development issues such as vitality and communication.
Because the group consists of both staff and operational functions, they get to know the company better and build an internal network in a short time. The Bilfinger Network is guided from HR and senior management, who support the participants in their career development.
After participating in the Bilfinger Network, your career development does not stop there; the next step in the pyramid is the program of the international Bilfinger Academy which includes the Talent Program and the Leadership Program (LP) in which colleagues from different Bilfinger companies participate.
We also have great traineeships for different fields.
