“The company’s success does not come by chance,” continues Managing Director Eugen Dumitrescu. “We engage in long-term and sustainable personnel development and make sure that trainees and employees feel well. A 95 percent retention rate for trainees, mostly in positions they choose, shows us that we are on the right track with our HR strategy.” To really make them fit for the job market, the trainees are not only prepared in the practical work environment, but also in the company’s own training workshop for the upcoming requirements in the best possible way.
Robin Riwoldt, apprentice electronics technician for devices and systems, adds: “I really like the training at TRIOPTICS. I get an insight into many departments and processes of the company and was able to make my contribution right from the start. After my apprenticeship, I would like to stay at TRIOPTICS, do further training to become a state-certified technician and take on more responsibility.”
Wedel-based TRIOPTICS GmbH, a part of the Jenoptik Group since 2020, offers a wide-ranging product portfolio of optical measurement and manufacturing systems with the associated electronic control and automation. The company, which employs more than 350 people, trains six to eight apprentices each year in more than ten commercial and technical/industrial professions. The company, which is based and located on the Elbe River, was founded in 1991, so this year’s 30th anniversary is also a reason to celebrate.
The Kiel Chamber of Industry and Commerce awards the TOP training company title to up to six training companies each year. It is not possible to apply for the award. The honorary IHK board selects six companies from the suggestions of the training advisors with the help of quantitative and qualitative criteria. Aspects such as the quality of training, support for weaker young people, training premises and support for particularly gifted trainees are considered in the decision-making process.
