At a glance

Aurubis AG, based in Hamburg, is a listed, internationally active copper producer and copper recycler. The company produces over a million tons of copper cathodes every year, from which it manufactures various copper products and employs more than 7,000 people.

The Aurubis Orientation Track ("O-Track") will start in the 4th quarter of 2022 to accompany 34 talents on their learning path to executives, experts and project managers. In order to anchor habits and newly learned things in the long term, the 5-month program consisting of workshops, remote sessions and development talks was accompanied by self-directed learning with the Savvi app.


The talents improved in all predefined key competences:

  • 24% in managing growth

  • 27% in leading teams

  • 29% in managing projects

  • 25% in Being an expert

In addition to positive verbal feedback, the participants showed above-average commitment - 73% of all possible microtrainings were completed - and developed into a group with a strong sense of community.

Behaviors

We used Savvi's modules to adapt the app to our requirements. This enabled us to activate our talents between the face-to-face meetings and, based on data-driven feedback, to identify how we can promote our talents even better.

THE SITUATION

O-Track as a blended learning concept for orientation for young talents

The O-Track is designed to guide employees from the talent pool onto one of three learning paths: Executive, Expert, or Project Manager. The 5-month program to teach key skills for building and teaching the Aurubis culture (e.g. feedback culture) should start in Q4 2022. A blended learning format was planned with workshops (on site and virtually), personal coaching and self-directed learning. 

THE CHALLENGE

Gain deep insights & anchor the right behavior in the long term

The O-Track was developed together with external trainers. During the development, three central questions arose:
 

  • How do you get deep insights into the ambitions, strengths and development areas of the talented people in order to prepare them for the next development steps?

  • How to encourage discussion between talents and their leaders to reflect on their career aspirations?

  • How can key competences (e.g. "giving feedback", "building resilience" and "self-awareness") become daily habits?

THE SOLUTION

Start of a multi-week learning journey for key competencies

Over the course of the 5-month program, the 34 talents deepened their knowledge in one of three tracks: manager, expert and project manager. New methods were taught through sessions accompanied by trainers, personal coaching and remote sessions. Savvi was used by the participants in the course of the O-Track to regularly repeat what they had learned in the context of self-directed learning and to apply it in their everyday work. The group completed 73% of all possible microtraining sessions. This corresponds to over 131 hours of self-directed learning in the Savvi app.  

In addition, Savvi provided continuous insights into the development of talents, an evaluation of learning progress and thus created transparency about the strengths, development potential and interests of the participants. In addition to the personal feedback, the Aurubis team and the trainers thus had a data-driven basis for evaluating the O-Track.

In the four previously defined key competencies, the participants developed as follows:
 

  • 24% Managing growth

  • 27% in leading teams

  • 29% in managing projects

  • 25% Being an expert

In addition to the development in these key competencies, the O-Track was a complete success in that the 34 talents developed into a community with great cohesion. 

For me, the O-Track was much more than just an orientation: I had the opportunity to get to know colleagues from different areas of our growing organization. In addition, the O-Track provided me with useful insights to accelerate my personal development, e.g. B. with insights from Savvi.
