Investing in the Future

"The employees' qualifications determine the success of the company." Based on this conviction, Reinhard Mohn founded Bertelsmann's private vocational school more than 50 years ago, laying the cornerstone for the Group's present system of training in Germany and creating the impetus for the establishment of a comprehensive system of continuing education. Major societal challenges such as demographic change, as well as the Group's internationalization and a changing media landscape can only be tackled with well-trained employees. Training and continuing education are an effective and smart investment in the future, for both the company and its employees.
