Following Great Place to Work® naming Sensirion, the international manufacturer of environmental and flow sensors, the second best employer in Switzerland, the high-tech company has now also received Great Start! certification. Sensirion’s commitment to apprentice training is highly valued internally and has now also been honored with the Great Start! certification. All apprentices say that Sensirion is overall a very good place for an apprenticeship. We are very proud of this 100% approval.
Sensirion currently supervises 20 apprentices. Apprentices are given responsibility and trust. They are treated like permanent employees right from the start, are well integrated into their teams and can work on exciting projects. Cohesion among the apprentices and their well-being are top priorities at Sensirion. For this reason, an apprentice excursion, an apprentice camp and monthly meetings among the apprentices are organized every year. More results from the Great Start! survey show that credibility and open communication are integral parts of the corporate DNA at Sensirion. In addition, special occasions are celebrated and everyone works together with the same goals in mind.
"As an apprentice, you feel welcome here." 94% of Sensirion apprentices agreed with this statement. An equal number of apprentices say they are proud of what they do and the contribution Sensirion makes to society as an organization.
This year, twelve programs have already been awarded the "Excellent Training Companies in Switzerland" certificate. Sensirion is proud to be one of them. In an anonymous survey, the apprentices rated Sensirion as an employer, the collaboration with the vocational trainers and practical instructors, and the corporate culture. For the overall assessment, the company’s apprenticeship concept was also evaluated. This documents all vocational training measures, processes and tools in detail. "Young talent is important for the successful future of an international company. That’s why we are happy to invest time in the training and development of young professionals and train apprentices," says Morena Casarico, Vocational Training Manager.
