Long-term and purposeful efforts are being made within Serneke to recruit and retain competent and dedicated employees. This is achieved by marketing Serneke externally, offering and explaining development and career opportunities within the Group and creating conditions for participation and commitment.

Besides the compulsory courses in areas such as work environment, environmental standards and safety, each manager is offered the opportunity to procure additional training.
