Multiplier training for employees in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry

Energy crisis, structural change, intensification of working hours. The multiple crises also have an impact on companies and lead to a loss of confidence in politics, trade unions and fundamental value systems such as solidarity, freedom and equality. The space to exchange ideas and express criticism often does not exist. Instead, false prophets from right-wing parties, groups or conspiracy networks take up the unease and channel it into aggression.

In our multiplier training, we encourage and network colleagues who want to anchor a culture of solidarity in the workplace and help shape it democratically.

Depending on the resources of the companies, the multiplier training includes in-house training or is offered across companies at a central location.
