The range of courses provided by the Unica Academy continues to increase and many employees make use of them for their professional or personal development. On-the-job coaching is also a common development path that Unica considers important. Trainee installers with basic technical skills learn the tricks of the trade under the guidance of experienced colleagues, providing a base from which they can further advance. This model could also be used for technically-oriented candidates joining from other sectors. Unica will be studying the possibilities of this route in 2021.
Unica has invested considerably in the training and development of management in recent years. More than 225 managers have now completed the leadership programme set up for this purpose, based on three core themes; leadership, cooperation and communication. This basis was particularly relevant in 2020, considering the importance of remote management and giving employees careful attention. Unica also continues to invest in training courses designed to develop young talent. The management traineeship has now been completed by dozens of first-time employees with a higher vocational education or university degree and is being expanded with a course for young professionals that focuses on technical specialists with one to three years of work experience.
