The “Great Place to Start” award recognizes companies with an exemplary workplace culture for apprentices. The company training scheme and an anonymous survey conducted amongst apprentices carry equal weighting in the certification procedure. The report by Great Place to Work® concluded that CCYP apprentices are very satisfied with their jobs, enjoy their work and have confidence in their training provider. In particular, they appreciate the constructive approach to mistakes, the strong team spirit and opportunity to work independently.
Why PostFinance is one of the best training companies in Switzerland
In August 2018, PostFinance’s Competence Center for Young Professionals (CCYP) was presented with the “Great Place to Start” award, identifying it as one of the best apprenticeship providers in Switzerland for 2018.
Want to learn independently and creatively? PostFinance promotes this in its apprenticeships
The award is a testament to the work put in daily by the entire CCYP management and apprenticeship team. The training given to apprentices places great emphasis on individual responsibility and creativity. The apprentices organize their work independently using agile working methods and are able to take on responsibility at an early stage. The CCYP is a breeding ground for the ICT (information and communications technology) professions at PostFinance, providing a continual supply of qualified specialists. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the apprenticeship center trains the professionals of the future in the fields of IT, mediamatics, interactive media design and commercial apprenticeships.
