Lufthansa again accentuated the international focus of its recruitment campaign last year. The Group was able to attract participants from different countries for around 30 per cent of the places on the ProTeam entry-level recruitment programme.
The “explorers” programme for networking and developing international collaboration between the different companies in the Group was run again in 2011 for over 150 talented young employees in the Group and at major affiliates.
In spite of its international outlook Lufthansa remains true to its roots as well, presenting the Lufthansa Award for Excellence in the German Language at three international universities. The winners for 2011 were students of Boston College and MIT in the USA, and participants of the Chinese-German College in Shanghai.
