Corporate Social Responsibility
Trainees experienced common yard work
DB Schenker is aware of its economic, ecological and social responsibility and we are actively involved in several global projects. We consider it our duty to keep our responsibility as a logistics provider in the forefront of our minds.
During the qualification week at the beginning of October, all trainees of the international trainee program “Talents@DB Schenker Logistics” visited the multi-generation house in Essen-Frohnhausen, Germany and supported the social project by active field work.
This included renovating the kindergarden and experiencing common yard work. The multi-generation house “St. Anna” is an initiative to support and connect the neighbourhood and to promote the exchange between generations.
The qualification week is an essential part of the trainee program next to the stations in various departments. Every six months all trainees participate in a qualification week which aims to strengthen the social skills as well as the cross-functional business know-how of the trainees. Therefore, Global HR Development as the program coordinator organizes regularly trainings covering topics as e.g. cultural awareness and logistics knowledge.
