Our employees

Continuous 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 we 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.

The trainings and seminars held in 2017 focused on professional development measures, but also dealt with soft skills, i.e. personality, team spirit and collaboration, as well as target-group-specific topics (business empowerment in sales, advancement of female potentials). In the context of such soft skills, three formats are now especially well-established: “Identifying your own strengths and potential”, “Assuming responsibility for yourself” and “Reflecting on your personal mindset”.

A professional top-notch offer in our CPD programme is the DZ 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. In 2017, the fifth year of the academy started with 20 students. DZ HYP also offers employees the possibility of enrolling in a part-time study programme with ADG Business School (associated with Steinbeis University Berlin).

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