Project 8259 -‘NextGen Logistical Workers’

The European Social Fund/Europees Sociaal Fonds (ESF) invests in labour market opportunities and qualitative careers with Flemish and European support. ESF is a European initiative aimed at promoting employment in Europe.

Endorsing skill development is a high priority on the agenda for which the ESF reserves funding. It is this pillar which captured the interest of Kuehne+Nagel. The ESF project ‘NextGen Logistical Workers’(2019-2020) builds further on the ESF project ‘The connecting role of HR (closed in 2018).  Both projects are a practical application of the KN+NextGen strategy.

NextGen Logistical Workers aims to further prepare our workforce for the challenge of the future by promoting trainings related to:

1. Digitalization:   acquiring new digital skills crucial to evolve with technological evolution (including MS office, social collaboration tools, business intelligence software,…)
2. Social skills: trainings related to communication, leadership, collaboration, customer service,…
3. Languages: all trainings aiming to improve language skills
