PRESS RELEASE

Arntz OPTIBELT Group:
16 trainees and dual degree programme students have begun vocational training

  • Company provides vocational training in seven occupations requiring formal training and in six dual degree programmes in cooperation with regional universities 
  • Employee survey 2013: OPTIBELT trainees are motivated and commend instructors' expertise

Höxter, 19 September 2013. Ten trainees and six dual degree programme students have just begun vocational training in 2013/2014 with the Arntz OPTIBELT Group based in Höxter. The number of new trainees thus remains the same as last year, while increasing by six compared with 2011. Most of the trainees and students come from the region East Westphalia.

‘Providing vocational training to our own employees is important to us and helps us maintain our high standard of quality,’ says Reinhold Mühlbeyer, chairman of the board at Arntz OPTIBELT Group. ‘We are always very pleased with our trainees' performance, and in recent years have been able to offer employment to all trainees who complete the course of training.’

Throughout the course duration of three to three-and-a-half years, future industrial sales representatives, process mechanics, IT specialists, technical product designers, industrial electricians, chemical laboratory assistants and warehouse logistics specialists receive vocational training. In addition, the company has also had a positive experience cooperating with regional and national universities of applied sciences and nearby vocational academies in dual degree programmes. Practical bachelor degree courses in Business Economics, International Business, Business Informatics and Business Law as well as engineering studies in Production Engineering and Engineering Management are in demand both among high-school 

graduates and the workforce. On the one hand, these courses of study combine university education with integrated practical modules. And on the other hand, they directly involve students in the company and company processes and projects during studies.

‘We offer our trainees and dual degree programme students a multifaceted, thorough and practical education with great opportunities for future development. They receive excellent preparation for their future professional life in a long-standing family enterprise with a highly international focus,’ comments Konrad Ummen, member of the board at Arntz OPTIBELT Group. The high standard of the education is also reflected in the results: In addition to earning excellent degrees, OPTIBELT trainees have also been distinguished in recent years in the scope of the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry's (CCI) awards programme for the National Best in CCI Jobs. In the spring of 2013, one such employee completed a part-time training programme as a warehouse logistics specialist with full marks and took on a commercial position in logistics.

The trainees and dual degree programme students at Arntz OPTIBELT Group are also satisfied with the company and the training they receive here. In a recent employee survey of 44 trainees and dual degree programme students, 92 per cent of those asked consider the company a good place to receive training, and expressed pride at taking part in OPTIBELT's vocational training programme. The survey comprised roughly 50 questions on topics such as ‘Image and work climate’, ‘Training content’, ‘Communication and employee appreciation’, ‘Prospects’ and ‘General’.

‘We are very pleased with the overall excellent results, but we do see room for improvement in some areas,’ says Frank Peter Rinno, human resources manager at Arntz OPTIBELT Group. The instructors received a great deal of praise: 79 per cent of those surveyed find the transfer of knowledge very good, a further 18 per cent good. The call for greater influence in shaping the programme is great: One in six 

desires that his/her own ideas receive greater consideration. A total of 38 per cent demand improved coordination of practical course and theoretical instruction content. Action is also called for regarding the standard of the content of the course. ‘This feedback will help structure company processes. We are currently compiling proposals to further improve our vocational training programme both for trainees and dual degree programme students,’ concludes Reinhold Mühlbeyer.
