In conversations with entrepreneurs, from small business owners to DAX board members, there is one topic that resurfaces when it comes to the modern German industry: How do we stay competitive in the future? With a shortage of skilled workers and 40 percent of all trainee positions being left vacant, how do we tackle this issue? Perhaps, dear entrepreneurs, the answer lies in showing your market and potential employees how relevant you are and how great it is to work for you.
A company with inspiring solutions for how a future-ready city can be given shape and contour. From sustainable mobility concepts to modern supply and disposal systems, Herrenknecht is not only a leading manufacturer of tunnel boring machines (TBM) but also an underground innovator. AT YOUR SIDE proves that there are a great many challenges when it comes to innovating below the surface.
Ever tried to lift a TBM that’s equivalent in weight to 1,100 small cars and pull it around a bend with extreme precision? We have. Well, we watched at least. And filmed it of course. AT YOUR SIDE is a series in which we accompany Herrenknecht AG around the globe in the madness that is the everyday life of these employees. Our team captures the thrill of the construction site where no task is too difficult, no site too turbulent and no project too daring. Because, after all, the city of tomorrow will be built underground.
