RWE Power AG makes use of Augmented Reality training systems to provide instruction in welding for apprentice construction mechanics during their basic training stage. These are expanded AR simulators with real components and applications. A Learning Management System combines theory, simulation-based exercises and real training in the welding booth. The method follows the “gamification” approach, since it combines typical game features with learning processes, which makes it highly motivational. Experience shows that “beginner” welders learn faster and more effectively with this kind of virtual practice.
Both the digital and the sustainable transformation of the RWE Group depend greatly on the company’s ability to successfully recruit new talents. RWE enjoys an excellent reputation, is highly regarded as an employer in Europe, and is highly ambitious when it comes to digitalising its HR processes.
The HR departments in the Group make use of chatbots, opportunities for process automation and new onboarding strategies to future-proof their HR marketing. Digital report books and online applications are gaining ground in young people’s professional training. RWE also scores with a multimedia careers portal that’s constantly being updated, in addition to its presence in careers networks and on social media.
