Development possibilities

As Celesio employees, you have interesting opportunities for your professional and personal development at all times in your career. We place great value on individual professional and personal further development. Our staff attend the group’s qualification offers for specialist and managerial employees. Seminars organised by external providers as well as individual coaching and language training are also possible. To ascertain individual training needs, we regularly conduct appraisal and development interviews.

We offer employees with management potential the opportunity to take up management positions within the group. Thus, since 2009, for example, we filled around 70 per cent of all vacant managerial positions at the head office from our own ranks. It is important that our future managers are thoroughly prepared for their new positions.

On signing the Charter of Diversity on 30 May 2008 Celesio made a commitment to an unprejudiced working environment and an open corporate culture. This means that all members of staff are judged irrespective of age, sex or nationality. Several hundred German companies have joined the initiative, whose patron is the German head of government.
