Schneider Electric facilitates cross-border employee exchanges within its organisation. The company’s international training programmes are designed to increase its employees’ professional growth and development, to promote a culture of learning and diversity, and to establish a deeper understanding of the organisation’s latest products and services. The areas of study for the candidates are based on the needs of the local market, and the most recent exchange programme focused on upskilling employees on variable speed drives (VSDs) and the entire system associated with this technology. The training programme was open to all full-time employees of Schneider Electric South Africa who held an electrical/electronic engineering background and displayed the right drive and talent. Product application engineers Bonang Lephole and Renaldo Petersen were selected this year. They completed the eight-month training programme which took place in both France and Austria.
