The systematic vocational training of talents is an important pillar of human resources work at HUGO BOSS. The Company offers a wide range of technical and commercial vocational training and work/study programs, in collaboration with regional, national, and international universities and training centers.
To identify and recruit young talents outside the company at an early stage, HUGO BOSS employs a variety of measures at its locations and works together with external partners. One example is the HUGO BOSS Ticino Ambassador Program at our Swiss location, in which employees are committed to expanding and consolidate collaborations with universities.
A systematic approach to continuing education and career development supports employees in continually increasing their knowledge and expanding their skills. HUGO BOSS has implemented an employee development program in addition to the existing extensive options for individual development. Future managers and team leads follow this specific development plan. HUGO BOSS offers individual development programs for managers with special training options, both at headquarters and in the subsidiaries. The Excellence Program, for example, provides specialized training content for employees in IT, procurement, or project management.
In this way, the company not only succeeds in attracting external applicants as an attractive employer, but also in recruiting internal candidates to fill vacancies. In 2022, we hired 57% (2021: 59%) of our roles with internal candidates (refers to the DACH region). With company-wide events such as our healthcare and sustainability days, we also invite you to expand your horizons far beyond your department’s boundaries.
