The Messer Group sees the future of its workforce in in-house training for young employees


Two years ago, Messer Group implemented concrete measures aimed at supporting young employees by establishing its own Academy. Since then, the Group has already been able to fill management positions from the ranks of its own young employees.

“Our aim is to identify and foster young employees and retain them over the long term. As part of this process, we naturally set great store by technical expertise, know-how and knowledge. However, we also want to pass on the character and ‘spirit’ of Messer as an independent family business, along with openness and respect in dealing with one another,” says Stefan Messer, Owner and CEO of Messer Group, explaining the company’s commitment to its young employees.

The “Academy Messer Group” has launched an international support program in the form of the “Junior Circle.” The training concept comprises five one-week modules focusing on a variety of topics as well as intercultural training for staff working in different fields. The program was launched in 2013 with 18 selected individuals from Europe, China, and Peru.

A further 18 selected young employees from 12 nations started the second Circle this year. Like their predecessors, they will undergo a targeted development process over the next two years to make them fit for a career at Messer.
