Life-long learning

The world is changing fast – we keep up

Article: Lifelong learning

Lifelong learning is essential to us. Our goal is to create an environment that lets our employees keep pace with how the world is changing.

DB Systel is synonymous with innovative projects and technology. Working for us demands a lot from our employees, but we know we can count on their professionalism and creativity. We want to make sure they are always at the top of their game, so we offer a wide range of excellent training courses via our company platform. People learn in different ways, and we have acknowledged this fact by designing e-learning courses and traditional seminar-based classes that cover all bases. Participants can study whenever they want and wherever they are.

With a workforce of some 7,000 people, we can tap into an impressive repository of expertise in IT, methodologies and work-related issues.  Our goal is to make the best possible use of the knowledge we possess and ensure that our employees have access to it in the form of specialised programmes about topics that are of strategic importance at DB. As DB Systel evolves towards becoming a self-organising network, agile working methods like SCRUM and skills such as self-reflection and personal responsibility become increasingly important. The same goes for cooperation within teams.

Employees interested in a new challenge can turn to our skills marketplace, which matches someone’s skillset with the requirements listed for temporary jobs and full-time positions.  

Our scholarship programme is aimed at particularly talented employees with excellent development potential, and it gives them the opportunity to acquire a Bachelor's or Master's degree as they work. They need to bring something to the table too, of course: high levels of initiative and motivation.
