The personnel-development and training program "House of Finance" offered by Deutsche Post World Net will receive the renowned Initiative Award on Professional Training this year. The prize has been awarded since 1993 by the Otto Wolff Foundation, the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce and the magazine "Wirtschaftswoche." With this award, the jurors recognize companies that introduce exemplary initiatives into their professional training programs and, as a result, raise the quality and attractiveness of company-based training. In its "House of Finance" program, Deutsche Post World Net bundles continuing education programs for finance employees.
"Personnel development and tailor-made training programs are the keys for first-class executives who focus on the customer, think like entrepreneurs and have leadership qualities," says Walter Scheurle, management board member in charge of personnel at Deutsche Post World Net.
"To offer the financial experts of Deutsche Post World Net around the world the best possible professional-growth and training opportunities, the Finance department teamed up with the human resources department to develop the House of Finance training program, which is designed to meet the specific requirements of the Group's finance area," says Hendrik Vater, the head of the board office Finance and the director of the program. Employing an innovative concept of four different componential levels, "House of Finance" offers a wide variety of training and developmental opportunities that cover the areas of soft skills, business know-how and leadership skills.
"The senior finance management in the finance department acts as a professional mentor in the individual training sessions and is responsible for the individual components used in the House of Finance, whose content and formats are designed to address business needs," Vater says.
