Education and Training

in the Adler Group

Part of being an attractive employer is linked to offering employees opportunities for further training or development based on the individual focus of their work. Adler Group has continued its efforts in this regard and further expanded its personnel development offers. This comprises general qualification and further training programmes, as well as individual talent management. Personnel development measures are generally open to the entire workforce. In addition, targeted development programmes that take all corporate and individual aspects into account venture further and provide employees with the option of growing into any suitable position within Adler Group. During the restructuring phase 2022/2023, these development programmes at Adler Group also include resilience training to prepare for changes that are related to portfolio adjustment but also to prepare for the increasing digitalisation. One important building block of this approach is to promote individual internal talents to grow into specialist and managerial roles.

Over the course of the year, a total of 1,945 learners have used the personnel development offers and spent a total of 12,755 hours with such measures. This corresponded to an average of 23 hours of further training hours per fulltime employee (EPRA Emp-Training), around four times as much as in the previous year. The topics in these further training courses ranged from accounting, IT, real estate planning and management, quality management, communication to presentation techniques. Further, they included foreign language classes, coping techniques to better handle disruptions in the work environment, resilience training, and team building. Further training for management concentrated on coaching and media presence. Adler Group also offered numerous mandatory training courses for all employees, provided the respective content was relevant to their role: occupational safety in the offices, the German General Act on Equal Treatment, IT security, data protection, prevention of corruption, handling of gifts, invitations, donations, or sponsoring.

Adler Group not only promotes talent within the Company with numerous further training courses, but also shows above-average commitment to the in-company training of young professionals. As in previous years, Adler Group again received the “Excellent Training Quality” award from the Berlin Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) in 2023. Out of 5,000 training companies, just 140 received this excellence award, a mere 2.8%. In 2023, Adler Group employed 5 apprentices in the dual (company-based) training programme and 2 trainees in the dual study programme.
