Learning and digital education are simply part of it

Continuing education is not a privilege for the few, but is important for everyone. We therefore escort our employees through their digital change with development and e-learning programmes.


One example is our TechUcation continuing education initiative, which helps us create a common understanding and language for digitisation within the Group. TechUcation allows us to anchor learning and digital education as an integral part of our everyday work and our corporate culture.

TechUcation deals with digitisation’s most important issues - from new technologies to innovative working methods. The first step is an online basic course that is binding for all. Afterwards, Otto Group employees have access to a comprehensive range of courses that build on this over a period of three years.

develop<HER>, the Female Business Network PLAN F founded by employees of OTTO and the Otto Group Holding, has also created an event-based education format. Whether web development, block chain or chat bots - in workshops, volunteer mentors provide insights into various fields of technology. All with the aim of inspiring female staff for digital topics.

But technology is not everything. A successful journey into the digital future also requires inner attitude, corporate culture and communication. Under the concepts of Kulturwandel and New Work we are looking to promote a mindset of personal responsibility. On top of this, we offer a wide range of courses, seminars and coaching options throughout the Otto Group to provide employees with a wide variety of development opportunities - both professionally and personally.

So say our colleagues

"We as employees have got to experience more fun with the concept of digitisation. Ultimately, fun generates enormous amounts of courage and the willingness to leave our comfort zones. Only in this way can we hope to shape digitisation ... and not the other way round."
