Training and skills development: the future is sharing

Published on: 22/09/2022

A central element of Coem’s way of doing business is the training and professional updating of its staff, which is necessary to achieve improvement objectives at production, management and commercial level.


Already in 2015 we launched a series of meetings at our headquarters to promote the training of architects. This involved the awarding of training credits, which were also open to all of our customers, but in 2020, due to the pandemic, much of the classroom training had to be stopped and was carried out partially through webinars using digital platforms. In 2021 training was carried out in mixed classroom and webinar mode.


In 2021, training was primarily directed at blue-collar and white-collar workers, who respectively accounted for 86% and 11% of the total hours allocated by the company to professional development. Among the various areas covered, a significant number of hours were allocated to technical/operational training, with an important increase between 2020 and 2021 owing to the start-up of the “Warehouse Management System” project in the warehouse of the Roteglia plant, which involved all the company’s forklift drivers and shipping office.


It is also important to emphasise that 85% of the time allocated to training focused on safety issues, while the remaining time was devoted to developing skills and knowledge in other subject areas.
