A pilot workshop illustrates the need for early involvement of trainees in sustainability issues.
The organizers and participants rated the first trainee workshop of the Allianz pro Sustainability (ApN) on topics of sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) as a complete success. 18 apprentices from the companies Gira, Viessmann, Caparol and Wilo came together as part of an exchange program at the Gira headquarters in Radevormwald in early February. After a lecture on the importance of sustainable business and its impact on everyone, the focus of the two-day event was on developing a sustainability strategy for a fictitious company. In group work, the trainees looked at the fields of action employees, environment, market and community and considered how a concrete implementation in the company including suitable communication measures could look like. In a dialogue with the company's sustainability officers, the trainees were also able to gain practical experience from everyday company life.
The positive feedback from the participating trainees during and after the event was particularly gratifying. In addition to valuable suggestions, the workshop helped to better understand the relationships between business, society and the environment. After these very positive experiences, the organizing companies are convinced to raise awareness among trainees about the relevance of CSR as early as possible. It is important to make a connection to everyday business life.
Another workshop is already planned for another ApN industry partner in autumn this year.
