With the igefa campus training facility founded in 2012, we have incorporated an important future-oriented topic for our customers - and also for our own staff.
Knowledge management is of key importance in the long-term success of companies.
From our headquarters in Berlin, we organise a broad range of training packages throughout Germany.
We offer our customers practical seminars, in-house training and webinars, and respond to individual needs.
Customer seminar topics are particularly oriented to the sector-specific requirements of building cleaning, healthcare, municipal and public facilities and the hotel, gastronomy and catering sectors, as well as food processing.
Usually, our seminars are divided into three development stages: introductory, advanced and experienced.
In this way, we take into account the current level of knowledge of the participants, and take up their needs where it makes most sense for them personally.
Practical knowledge transfer is in particularly high demand
Today, further qualification specialist topics are right at the top of the agenda of human resources managers
This emerged from the study “Further education trends in Germany 2017” by the Studiengemeinschaft Darmstadt (SGD), for which TNS Infratest surveyed 300 personnel managers in German companies.
At the igefa, specialist, practice-based seminars such as the “ABC of cleaning” or “Kitchen hygiene basics” are also in highest demand from customers.
Furthermore, special skills and functions can also be built up and extended with the aid of our seminar series.
In healthcare, for example, we have received a great deal of positive feedback regarding the “Incontinence officer training” and “Healthcare hygiene officer” seminars, since participants are then able to support quality management in their institutions and conduct training on site.
This provides interesting added value for our customers.
Further training as a solution to personnel management challenges
Finding and retaining good specialist staff is currently one of the biggest tasks for our customers from the building cleaning, hotel and catering sectors.
The low level of attractiveness of some jobs in these areas - the working hours, low pay and physical and mental stress - means that staff fluctuation increases.
Increasingly, employers are having to turn to temporary or part-time staff. This creates a greater need for training.
With the igefa campus, we are responding to this need, and are adapting our programme to the current requirements.
For building cleaners, for example, we create training content which contributes to the integration of older members of staff, or which is tailored to the needs of migrant staff.
Alternative further training models such as late night training events are also available.
