Human Resources Development Programs

ALTANA offers employees Group-wide various programs that promote their personal and professional developments. They include regional and local development programs (DP) consisting of several modules lasting a total of 18 months.

In 2015, “DP Americas” was launched at our U.S. site in Wallingford. There were 14 participants. “DP Europe,” with eleven participants from various European companies, had begun a year previously. At its Hartenstein site, ECKART offered employees without managerial responsibilities the opportunity to take part in the local EDP program for the second time.

The international Management Development Program is directed to managers. In the summer of 2015, 13 staff members successfully completed this 18-month program. We developed the Cross Divisional Development Program (CDDP) especially for up-and-coming professionals, including trainees. The young talents have the opportunity to heighten their expertise in a number of different companies or the holding company, for example in the Research or Human Resources department.
