240 years of successful company history, owner-managed in the sixth generation, 1,300 employees, globally active as a technology leader in business fields such as “Electronics Production Equipment” and “Moulding Machines”, recently distinguished as Germany´s top employer and best training company. Sounds good on paper, but how does it feel for the individual? Kurtz Ersa Magazine interviewed Sebastian Fleck, who has been working for Kurtz Ersa´s Central Human Resources department since the beginning of November.

Sebastian Fleck had already been active in the human resources department of a medium-sized family business for some time during his vocational training as an office clerk. This continued with his business studies at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, where the 30-year-old chose to focus on human resources management and controlling and worked as a student trainee in human resources. During his master´s degree in business education in Bamberg, he also worked as a freelance lecturer at the vocational training centre, bfz. From the job advertisement on stepstone.de to the application to the invitation to an interview and recruitment, Sebastian Fleck not only felt it was fast, de facto it only took 13 days.

The new employee received a written invitation including an agenda for the first two onboarding days before the first day of work. “It was great to get to know the individual subsidiaries and their production right from the start – especially the historic iron hammer, the origin of a globally active group today,” says Sebastian Fleck. A start-up is certainly cool for many, but the business educator finds a traditional family business like Kurtz Ersa more fascinating, which, in addition to a long tradition, has values that have grown over many years.

Sebastian Fleck collected many positive impressions in the first few weeks – there was good teamwork, a flat hierarchy and a pleasant working atmosphere. Apart from the applicant management also the publication of job advertisements belong to its field of activity for the specialist of personnel development. As a contact person, he is happy to answer any questions applicants may have. Other tasks include organizational management via SAP and the organization of honors for long-standing employees. The latter is particularly important to the family company Kurtz Ersa in order to appreciate the outstanding performance and loyalty of its employees.

 

From January 2020, Sebastian Fleck himself will be responsible for the onboarding of new colleagues and will take over the supervision and recruitment of working students, (university) school interns and holiday workers. “Every day is fun and I am looking forward to playing an active role in the further personnel development of the Kurtz Ersa Group as an HR employee in the team of the Central HR department,” he said on his farewell.
