On top of the traineeships aimed at attracting new talent from universities and higher professional education, Unica launched a young professional programme to develop in-house employees with the potential to grow in their specialist field in 2021. The focus of this programme is on employees with 1-3 years work experience in both technical and line positions. 20 participants started this new education programme in 2021, and are actively contributing to specific improvement programmes within the company clusters. The leadership programme offered by Unica for the last 2.5 years to its management staff was once again continued in 2021. More than 80% of managers have now completed the programme. To cultivate interest in the leadership programme in day-to-day practice, the range of courses available in 2021 was expanded by three new modules, including interview techniques and peer feedback.
Within Unica, we not only focus attention on management and young talent, but also on the development of staff working in the field. To satisfy the growing demand for solutions in the field of digitalisation and sustainability, it is vital that we continue to focus support on education and development for our technical specialists. Unica’s initial focus is on online support for training and development, both for technical skills training and soft skills. In 2022, Unica plans to launch a platform with e-learning programmes, to centralise and improve access to the range of training courses.
