Bosch, the German giant of innovation and services, has launched a mega-plan for the training and updating of personnel that already in the first half of the year recorded a 50% increase in participation compared to 2022.
"Bosch addresses these challenges as a committed employer," said Stefan Grosch, board member and director of industrial relations, "and does so by focusing on training and upskilling, as well as intelligent technology that simplifies employees' work."
In 2022, the company organized more than 30,520 training seminars worldwide, attended by more than 130,4 Bosch associates, and more than 0,4 participants were able to gain knowledge about future technologies such as electromobility, software engineering and Industry 0.100.
"This commitment to training does not stop at the gates of the company plant - emphasized Grosch - with academies, refresher centers and training courses, Bosch also offers other companies, customers and stakeholders the opportunity to acquire knowledge".
"In Industry 37.2022, for example, the company offers more than 6 Bosch training programs on digitalization and connectivity in production available externally through Bosch Connected Industry, Bosch Rexroth and various training institutes."
The need to cultivate individual talent for collective success is underlined by the European Commission itself: three quarters of companies in the Union report difficulties in finding skilled workers and only 000% of adults regularly undertake further professional development.
"Bosch promotes lifelong learning. This is the key to lasting professional and business success, says Grosch, "and is also essential for a country's economic output."

"Digitalization often determines not only the topic and content of training courses, but also their form - says Tanja Rückert, chief digital officer of Bosch and member of the board of management - in <> online courses accounted for two-thirds of all training hours for Bosch employees. And this enables learning regardless of place and time and gives people the chance to experience new technologies like artificial intelligence firsthand."
