SUMMER TRAINEE PROGRAMSCAREER DEVELOPMENT FOR NEAR GRADUATES
Manuel joined Logoplaste Santa Iria, Portugal, for one of the summer Trainee Programs
Let’s find out how things are going...
Manuel, 22 years old, is currently working on his thesis focusing on the Portuguese packaging waste system to conclude his masters on Industrial Engineering and Management.
He had an idea, why not sign up for one of Logoplaste’s Trainee Programs and find out more about how plastic packages are made. This would tie in nicely with the research to help complete this paper.
Logoplaste matched his skills to the available programs, and Manuel was placed in Santa Iria, where he is assisting Maintenance as a liaison for the SAP Team.
So far, so good.
His program included:
Induction and training at headquarters with several stakeholders to help him understand what he was required to do
Introduction at Santa Iria, for Health & Safety instructions as well as job specifications
Hands on the job – there is nothing better than practice to start learning
Wishing Manuel good luck!
ENGINEERING FOR THE FUTURE Internship Program @Logoplaste3rd Edition
A GLOBAL AND INSPIRING LEARNING EXPERIENCE
At Logoplaste, innovation and development is key for our business growth. We believe in having a strong workforce, with the necessary skills and competencies, in order to achieve our strategic goals.
As part of Logoplaste’s 2015 strategy, we started a Global Internship Program, where talented graduates have the opportunity to help build and grow a successful business, while at the same time have access to state of the art production processes, fully automated lines, optimized efficiency at all levels and innovation as part of the company’s culture, DNA and daily routines.
The program is based on 6 fundamental principles:
1. Learning Culture
Logoplaste values methods that support and encourage Trainees to develop their knowledge, skills and performance.
2. Continuous Improvement
Constant learning during the program, promotes continuous improvement and helps Trainees achieve their goals. It also helps Trainees to be innovative and develop their ability to deal with change.
In every step of the program, Trainees have the opportunity to be a part of challenging projects and tasks that have real impact in packaging production.
4. Knowledge Sharing
Logoplaste encourages Trainees and Employees to work together more effectively, to collaborate and to share personal knowledge, be it theoretical or practical. Whenever these sessions come up with a Best Practice, this is shared worldwide.
5. Job Rotation
During the duration of the program, Trainees will have the possibility to rotate through five functional areas within the Logoplaste Group: shop floor and production processes, technical department and innovation lab. This will promote in-depth knowledge of all production processes, project management skills, innovation and design of plastic packaging.
To ensure the continuous learning, individual development needs, Trainees will be assigned a mentor, that will monitor performance, support all developmental activities and encourage to go further.
