Professional Development

Supporting our employees in developing their professional and personal skill is an important part of our Human Resources activities. We offer a broad range of training and continuing professional development (CPD) options, comprising in-house seminars, departmental training, team-building measures, workshops, language classes and IT training, and continuously adapt this range to meet current requirements, for example with regards to regulation. Our employees may also attend external seminars and visit other companies..

During 2016, DG HYP’s employees completed 4.0 training days on average (2015: 3.4). 90 per cent of employees have taken part in at least one training measure (2015: 73 per cent), underscoring the importance that DG HYP and its employees attach to education. 34 per cent of the trainings and seminars held in 2016 focused on professional development measures; 5 per cent dealt with leadership. The number of management seminars remained stable vis-à-vis 2015, whilst the number of general trainings increased.

A professional top-notch offer in our CPD programme is the DG HYP Real Estate Academy, which we established in 2010 in cooperation with the International Real Estate Business School (IRE|BS) of the University of Regensburg, one of the most renowned secondary education and training establishments in the real estate sector. Within the scope of three compact learning modules, IRE|BS instructors provide a sound insight into the real estate business during the course of one year. 2016 was the fourth year for the Academy, with a total of 23 participants completing the programme, which for the first time included six Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken colleagues.

Further to existing measures, DG HYP plans to expand its CPD offering towards age-appropriate learning.
