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.
