First Day at BFFT: First impressions of the vehicle developer with a difference
8.oo am in Gaimersheim, in front of the headquarters of BFFT: The vehicle developer with a difference is giving a warm welcome to its new employees who are waiting excitedly to see what the future holds for them here.
As the Personnel Department prepares the newcomers’ final documentation, they gather together in the Headquarters staff restaurant to chat with their new colleagues over a cup of coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. After this, the induction programme begins, carried out by the Recruitment division. After a brief presentation of the itinerary for the morning, it’s: “Give us a quick smile please!” as the IT Department takes a photo of each new face for their BFFT employee badge. Once everyone’s picture is taken, the new colleagues are met in the conference room by a staff member from Recruitment over cold drinks and butter pretzels. There their colleagues from Recruitment provide them with personnel and IT information (hours of work, sick leave, passwords, etc.). Even BFFT’s senior managers take time out, in turn, to meet everyone in person. Before being taken on a tour to explore the headquarters, the newcomers were presented with a BFFT gift box containing an induction folder with a safety briefing, office stationery, a voucher for the BFFT Store, and other promotional materials. The induction programme, providing a wealth of information for the new employees, was concluded with a communal lunch. We wish them a successful beginning in their respective departments. To date in 2015, 162 new employees and student interns have joined the ranks of the company.
