Personnel development

Long-term career planning

We believe in professionally training staff and in long-term career planning.

The basis for our employee’s personal development at Röhlig is the annual employee assessment discussion. On that occasion, we are able to identify their potentials and needs and review them at least once per year. Together we then determine the next steps or training for their personal development.

Besides individual training, Röhlig offers customized training programmes at junior and senior level:

Blue Step

Is management the same as leadership? What leadership style suits my nature? And how do I approach interpersonal relationships with my colleagues? It’s no question that if you take on more responsibility you have to be prepared for it. Blue Step is aimed at employees who have had initial leadership experience and want to further develop their skills. The programme takes place in head office in Bremen and includes two training modules. Topics like management, finance, leadership and intercultural skills are taught in practice and in theory over five days. As well as training, the programme starts with an individual development centre, which we carry out together with an external trainer. 

*NEW* Blue Step Sales

Our newly launched Blue Step Sales program is an immersive training course designed to equip Röhlig Logistics Sales employees with the skills and knowledge to excel in the dynamic world of international logistics.

Over five days, the participants delve into the intricacies of the sales cycle, mastering the art of negotiation and developing cross-cultural competencies that enable them to thrive in diverse markets. Led by experienced industry professionals and senior colleagues, the Blue Step Sales programme aims to provide a deeper understanding of our business and products and how we best serve our customers. By the end of the programme, the participants will have upskilled their professional abilities, gained a broader perspective of our business, and established further global connections.
