Trainees master great challenges. That is why HORN Glass Industries AG honours the best graduates of the individual training branches every year. The honours for the years 2021 and 2022 were now held in a small ceremony.
The issue of securing skilled workers is a challenge for society. It is an acute problem that HORN Glass Industries AG is also addressing. Actively promoting the qualification of young junior staff, offering them first-class further training opportunities and promotion prospects are an integral part of the technology company's corporate philosophy.
On Friday, December 9th 2022, the time had finally come: the honours for the trainees of HORN Glass Industries AG with regard to their successfully completed training in 2021 and 2022 could take place in an appropriate setting. Management Board member Stephan Meindl, Human Resources Manager Sabine Götz and the trainers were delighted to congratulate the former trainees on the occasion of their successful final examinations. "You are among Eastern Bavaria's best junior staff and you can be mighty proud of that," said Meindl in praise of the achievements. "At HORN, the doors are open for you to develop professionally in the fascinating world of glass plant engineering," he continued. He also thanked the trainers for their professional performance during the intensive training.
