FORWARD - Promoting Leadership Development at Salzgitter AG
No matter whether we are dealing with recent university graduates, experts with professional experience or leaders with managerial responsibilities: when it comes to developing our performers, we utilize a group-wide inter-company scheme - FORWARD.
FORWARD Programs develop logically from one to the next, providing individual support for leaders and experts, thus sustainably contribute to the rise of the corporate earning power.
Salzgitter Foundation Programs are tailored to high potentials/trainees with a university degree and to high performers with vocational training from all companies. The programs last between 12 to 15 months. A structured communication of knowledge as well as the development and enhancement of systematic approaches and social skills are priorities of these programs.
In the Salzgitter Management Seminar managers with some years of professional experience are given the opportunity to enhance their personal skills particularly in the area of leadership. Furthermore they are encouraged to intensify their corporate networking.
In the Salzgitter Experts Seminar experts with several years of professional experience and leaders of small teams meet up to promote personal skills in project and stakeholder management.
Managers and experts with several years of experience can participate in the Salzgitter Collaboration Workshops. These are platforms to exchange information about focus topics and to transfer knowledge by means of peer consulting.
In the Salzgitter Project Workshop, experienced leaders and experts are given the opportunity to apply their acquired skills to a concrete assignment within an interdisciplinary project group. The assignment is given by the board or the management of a subsidiary.
