At Staufen, professional development begins the moment you sign your contract. Your first day of work is our "welcome day." This is when you learn about every aspect of the company. And as a consultant, you will naturally receive all of your work tools, including your laptop, smartphone, company car, business cards, etc.
We conduct "beginner trainings" for new employees three times a year. Over the course of eight days, we will teach you the fundamentals about our company and our attitudes and approach. This includes information about corporate values, strategy, mission, vision and culture, sales processes, project design, our interpretation of Lean as well as pragmatic topics such as argumentation and presentation, flipchart training and media design. In the twelve months that follow,
you will start your on-the-job training in compliance with the mentor-mentee principle: The mentor assigned to you is an experienced colleague from your team who will serve as your point of contact and offer you guidance. Your mentor will give you feedback, explain in-house processes and standards, and provide deeper insights into our corporate culture and organizational structures.
It goes without saying that your mentor will not be your only sparring partner. At Staufen, we emphasize working together in close cooperation — for example, by providing straightforward assistance in resolving complex topics or in preparing for future challenges. We also achieve this through regular team development, team events, and above all, communication.
