Vocational training is how companies secure new talent.


“Companies in the state have no inclination to shift away from vocational education to secure junior talent. That’s why young people have every chance to land a vocational training position and can choose from a great variety of professions, whether they’re interested in a career in a commercial field, IT or logistics.”

Dr Patrick Rapp, State Secretary at the Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism in Baden-Württemberg

We interact against a background of mutual respect and trust.


“We don’t want our emerging talent to feel “junior”. After all, we share the same space and that takes mutual respect and trust. If a young person wants to take on responsibility early on, they’ll always have an experienced mentor by their side and the right development paths in front of them—a fact that’s become well known even beyond our heartland in the north of Baden-Württemberg.”

Corinna Müller, Managing Director, Bechtle Logistik & Service GmbH


Education is how society connects with its future.


“Vocational education is about the future, and that concerns all of us. The digital transformation has spurred on the need for young talent, and in this context we are in an excellent position and ready to do our part—for our society, our economy, and positive progress in Germany.”

Jochen Rummel, Head of Project & Service Management, Bechtle IT System House Neckarsulm

For me, vocational training at Bechtle is above all a mutual pledge of support and responsibility.


“We trainees are engaged in daily business right from the start and given jobs that allow us to take on real responsibility. I appreciate the trust that Bechtle has in me; it allows me to take on my tasks with confidence and in a structured manner early on. Bechtle really helps us advance both on a professional and personal scale.”

Julia Trage, Vocational Trainee for Wholesale and Foreign Trade, Bechtle Logistik & Service GmbH


Our current demography with its low number of students finishing secondary school is a huge challenge.


“Our current demography is a huge challenge as there continues to be a low number of school leavers juxtaposed with a great and growing need for qualified workers that companies are still keen to meet through in-house training. So there will be no shortage of attractive training positions in our region for years to come.”

Claudia Scheunpflug, Member of the Board and Head of Vocational Education & Training, IHK (Chambers of Industry and Commerce) Heilbronn-Franken

Vocational training is a cornerstone of our sustainable growth.


“In Germany, we are aiming for a training ratio of 10%, and are well on our way. What motivates us is our desire to help young talent start a career in IT. That’s why we offer training in a number of future-focused, modern fields, complemented by the catalogue of our own Bechtle Academy to ensure a great start for our budding professionals.” 

Thomas Erfort, Head of People Development & Academy, Bechtle AG
