Grafenrheinfeld, 2019/04/30. As one of the leading SAP service provid-ers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, FIS is expanding its efforts to train young academics by adding the “FIS Trainee Program” module, which trains them to become SAP Consultants (m/f/x) in six months.
On April 23, 2019, a total of nine candidates were officially given the starting signal for their six-month training as SAP consultants. Despite the short ap-plication phase of the program, the expectations regarding the number of participants were exceeded. Christian Lang as a member of the manage-ment board is very pleased about the positive response to the FIS trainee program. The three-level training concept starts with a basic training and the familiari-zation with the internal organizational and process structures. In this phase, a team-building measure also contributes to the positive atmosphere be-tween the actors and the responsible mentors of the trainee program. In the second training stage, the young professionals receive their central SAP training, which is supplemented by various soft skill training courses. The learned contents are then applied and deepened during the last 12-week training phase by using a training company.
Once the trainee program has been successfully completed in mid-October 2019, the certified SAP consultants will be given permanent employment contracts and sent to one of their preferred departments, i.e. Consulting, Support/In-house Consulting or Enterprise Information Management, so that they can fulfill their vocation as #improvers. In this way, FIS has implemented another important element in its human resources policy, which aims to attract and train new talents.
