Due to a change in the German law for the meat industry (Arbeitsschutzkontrollgesetz) at the beginning of 2021, we welcomed more than 3,300 flex workers as direct employees at Vion. To support our new colleagues with their integration into Vion, we offered online cultural training courses for our operational managers, former job coaches, the works councils and HR managers to prepare for the onboarding of our new colleagues and to create awareness about cultural differences.
Vion Academy is Vion’s online learning platform. In 2021, we added 200 online training courses. Now the platform contains over 500 courses on various soft skills, time management, and MS office. The courses are available in German, Dutch, English and Polish. All employees can follow these courses voluntarily, next to their compulsory courses.
To gain more insights in competences, qualities, drivers, pitfalls for job applicants, employees, leaders and teams, HR facilitates unified instruments for assessments. HR is trained to use and interpret these tools for the further development of our employees in the business.
