How to stand out from the huge number of companies in order to attract highly qualified young people and keep them in the company for the long term? A challenge that the TransInvest Group, parent company of Militzer & Münch, meets with its Talent Management Programme.


The TransInvest Group has provided for the future: eleven years ago, in 2011, it launched the group-wide Talent Management Programme (TMP) to promote its own young talents. This year, 21 promising young talents are taking part in the exclusive junior staff development program, which TransInvest organizes in cooperation with the University of St. Gallen Institute of Supply Chain Management.

„We are proud to offer this training opportunity to our young talents and thus to be able to fill vacant top positions with junior managers from our own ranks”, says Alexei Kovalenko, Chief Financial Officer, TransInvest and Militzer & Münch, and speaker of the Militzer & Münch Group Management.

The majority of the participants, 13 of the hopefuls, come from different Militzer & Münch country units. In late April, during the first part of the in-service module series, they were able to get to know the Swiss headquarters in St. Gallen in addition to the campus. Alexei Kovalenko and Ralph Stadler, Head HR TransInvest Holding AG, welcomed the participants and presented the course of events. During the three-day module, the participants focused on Controlling, Supply Chain Resilience and Process Management. Christoph Hollenstein, Head of Group Controlling Militzer & Münch, gave exemplary insights into controlling at TransInvest. Guest lecturers from renowned companies and university chairs provided the corresponding scientific background and addressed current challenges such as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and delays in global supply chains.

„The discourse that emerges from the input of our junior staff and the multifaceted experience of external managers is a very effective way of meeting today’s shift in values with the right answers, and maintaining innovative strength and competitiveness,” says Alexei Kovalenko.

In addition to interactive group tasks, the shared evening activities promoted cohesion, and encouraged not only strategic and business-related discussions but also personal exchanges.

The participants will complete two further modules over the course of the year, partly online and partly on site in Istanbul, and conclude their training with a group presentation. After that, the young talents will support management in various country organizations in identifying interesting opportunities and expanding business locally.
