The trade fair industry is transforming. That is why it is so important to us right now to encourage our employees’ skills. We’re one of the biggest employers in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region, and we do a lot to make sure we are one of the most attractive, too.
Our employees are the key to our success as a company. Service providers especially have to rely on their employees’ performance and dedication, and these have made a major contribution to the NürnbergMesse success story. We want to continue that story even after the pandemic, which is why we invest significantly in our personnel.
NürnbergMesse employees can grow and develop within an environment of esteem and respect. The company encourages their skills and professional knowledge, and systematically seeks out talent and potential within its ranks.
A broad programme for continuing education includes options like leadership courses for management, or qualification modules like the Sales Academy and the Marketing Academy. NürnbergMesse invests in its future through the high quality of the training it provides in eight apprenticeship occupations and three dual-track courses of studies in association with a university.
We are certain that a diverse team and our partnership-based corporate culture are important factors for success. That is why NürnbergMesse is developing an all-inclusive concept for diversity. It also aims to steadily expand the percentage of women in management, as a way of reinforcing equal opportunity in-house. One important component here since 2016 has been the “Jump” mentoring programme.
Health and well-being for employees and their families is a top priority at NürnbergMesse. That is why it launched a professional company health management system in 2022, offering options for diet, health and sports.
NürnbergMesse is already supporting employees and their families with a range of counselling and other services when there is an acute need to care for children or other family members. During the COVID-19 pandemic, NürnbergMesse organised vaccination programs to protect its workforce.
Our employees have shown a liking for flexible work schedules. They can take advantage of flexitime models and the option to work from home. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic of 2021, this yielded a better work-life balance.
