Great news as we received for the first time from GRAFOC the sectoral Q-label as ‘Approved Internship Company’. OTM-Zenith proudly received this label this week.
GRAFOC is the industry career fund of and for people in print media, with a focus on training, education and research. PrintmediaJobs and Internships is part of GRAFOC, aimed at those who work or want to work in the print media industry. 160 companies with graphic activities can now call themselves Erkens Internship companies.
“Internships provide opportunities for pupils, students, job seekers and your company!” it says at PrintmediaStages. A statement we fully support with OMT-Zenith.
We have therefore taken this seriously and have been working on this for some time, with the result that we have obtained official recognition through the label as a valuable internship company.
In meanwhile we offer quality and diverse internships for trainees and apprentices in the print media sector. By giving them good on-the-job training, we want to motivate them to become good at their jobs. We hope that it will give our trainees a lot of security in the labor market in the long run. In addition to our reputation for high quality, we also want to impart important company values to them. This is where we as a company like to make a difference for our trainees. We take them on as a full-fledged employee; in return we expect commitment, eagerness to learn and dedication. An attitude that will push them up the ladder in their future careers.
In this way we are also doing our bit to increase employment in the print media sector without compromising on quality. Also the ties with schools are an added value.
In a labor market where good workers are becoming increasingly scarce, it is also a win-win for our company to have a quality internship policy. We sow so we can also enjoy a valuable harvest later.
This takes time and is at the same time an instructive experience for us. The fact that we receive recognition for this is a nice incentive and a motivation to continue working on this. Thanks to all the godmothers and godfathers who take care of the good supervision of these trainees.
Proud that we have been able to do this for so long.
