HR Excellence Awards 2012: ThyssenKrupp a double winner

 
The judges have decided: The HR Excellence Awards presented by the German trade magazine Human Resources Manager have gone to companies from ThyssenKrupp in two categories. In addition to ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s employee retention program “Leveling for service technicians”, ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein’s “AzubiBlog” (apprentice blog) also beat off stiff competition to win. Beaming with delight and clearly proud, the winners accepted their awards at a gala event held in Berlin at the beginning of December.
 
Presented for the first time this year, Human Resources Manager magazine’s HR Excellence Awards honor outstanding projects demonstrating exceptional innovativeness and creativity, and are aimed at raising public awareness of HR issues. The award ceremony at “The Ritz-Carlton” hotel in Berlin formed part of a festive dinner accompanied by interesting speakers and entertaining video clips.
 
In the “Learning and development strategy” category, ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s employee retention program won over the judging panel of business and academic experts, beating off entries from the BMW Group and Deutsche Bahn AG. The company’s “Leveling for service technicians” program offers its employees in China long-term career perspectives linked to skills- and performance-based compensation. The program includes wide-ranging training and certification measures and takes particular account of cultural differences.
 
ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein’s “AzubiBlog” apprentice blog also won first prize. In the “employee blog” category, the tinplate manufacturer beat entries from renowned companies and agencies. The blog was launched as part of apprenticeship marketing measures at Rasselstein and is produced by the apprentices themselves. It enables the company to approach specific potential applicants directly. The young trainees report openly and authentically on their experiences during their apprenticeships at Rasselstein. There is also an active dialog between the apprentices and visitors to the blog.
