Continuing education is a key component of corporate culture at Würth. Every company of the Würth Group supports the personal development of its employees with their own activities. These activities are complemented by the courses at Würth Business Academy, Akademie Würth, and Akademie Würth Business School. This holistic approach ensures optimum opportunities, both for the international management level and for the professional qualification and personal development of all employees.
Würth Business Academy focuses on management development and talent management. It ensures holistic management training and the systematic development of up-and-coming talent. The aim is for management positions to be filled primarily from the company’s own ranks. Accordingly, Würth Business Academy supports this process by offering suitable training programs for different stages in an employee’s development. Würth Business Academy supports the Würth Group’s top management bodies in their succession planning.
Akademie Würth offers an extensive personal and professional development program for employees of the Würth Group, as well as for customers and interested parties outside the Würth Group. Akademie Würth’s offering includes a variety of training courses and presentation methods, as well as training for special expertise, personal development and further training for executives. The holistic concept is rounded off by consultancy services on all matters relating to quality and process management, organizational development, and business excellence. This gives the Würth Group a unique opportunity in the market to actively support its employees’ and customers’ current and future success, thus allowing it to establish sustainable business relationships.
