Well trained, motivated and with individual strengths: when it comes to our staff, we know what we can count on. Accordingly, modern HR work has a high priority at HSH Nordbank. We provide specific support as well as individual basic and advanced training. We make use of our internal seminar programme to teach specific specialist content and offer training courses, among other things for communication, methodology and leadership skills. And we are not the only ones who think our HR work is exemplary: in 2015 we were awarded the "Fair Company" label by the Karriere.de initiative for our promotion of the next generation of employees and the fair treatment of trainees and university graduates. The Absolventa job exchange calls our trainee programme career-enhancing and fair. We were among the finalists in the German national Corporate Health Award with our comprehensive health care services, which are tailor-made for the needs of our workforce. We see this as confirmation and, at the same time, as an incentive to carry on precisely at this point.
