For eight young people from Bad Oeynhausen and the surrounding region a new phase in their lives is  beginning: they are starting their training at the process valve specialist Buschjost GmbH.

The company has taken on eight new apprentices: two industrial business management assistants, two industrial mechanics, a technical product designer, a toolmaker and an assistant for warehouse logistics.  This means that Buschjost currently employs 24 apprentices and three dual students. About ten percent of all employees are apprentices. With its modern company training Buschjost is providing an important contribution to the training of young people in the region and for securing its own skilled employees for the future.

Oliver Wehking, MD of Buschjost, welcomed the newcomers on their first day and emphasised the importance of a successful start to working life, the first hurdle of which they have taken at the start of training. "Qualified professionals are in demand and we have been successfully training them for many years" says Oliver Wehking. 

The education and training of employees has been of great importance to Buschjost GmbH for many years. "Given the demographic development the competition for the best skilled workers will become increasingly important. Investment in education and training is therefore an investment in the future" explains Lutz Missbach, HR manager. And he adds: "It has been shown that after successful training in technical and managerial tasks our students identify strongly with our company and make an important contribution to the success of the company.  Word about the attractive and versatile training has got around in the region and we always do a lot to make this even better."

The new trainees are given a range of new information about the company right at the start. Organisational matters are discussed and detailed instruction given to raise awareness of safety at work. As well as general information on the training, an exploration of the company by means of a small in-house rally is included in the programme for the first two days. After this the respective departments are visited. In the middle of August all Buschjost trainees go on a two-day field trip in which there is sufficient opportunity to complete tasks and challenges and to develop team spirit. "The journey gives the new trainees a good opportunity to socialize and to compare their expectations and our requirements", explains Lutz Missbach.
