Bockholdt GmbH & Co. KG – another LearnMatch Business app customer

Communication and effective cooperation are key for businesses, especially in difficult times. We are therefore delighted to announce a number of new customers who have discovered our LearnMatch Business app – including the well-known North German company Bockholdt GmbH & Co. With another LearnMatch Business app customer on board we are able to improve the communication in an even greater sector. Bockholdt represents an innovative approach to the implementation of building and personnel services – and now our LearnMatch language learning app also supports this vision.

What does Bockholdt stand for?

Bockholdt is a business from Northern Germany which is currently managed by the third generation of the original family. With 15 locations and around 5,000 employees, the company, founded in 1959, is today one of the largest employers in the north of Germany. Around 40 different services, a company-owned academy and more than 3,000 customers have made a significant contribution to the company’s success over the past 60 years. Service areas are divided into building, industrial and hospital cleaning. The services are ranging from soil decontamination to glass cleaning and pest control.

“Cleanliness is in our blood”

The company credo “Cleanliness is in our blood” is reflected both in their passionate customer orientation and in their innovative technology. Comprehensive technical and operational know-how is passed on to future generations with much passion. Bockholdt GmbH is one of the largest training companies in the industry. About 100 trainees per year successfully complete the academy. 60 different training modules prepare trainees for five different professions. This training clearly pays off, as a large part of management positions are now filled by former trainees. The rate of take-overs is correspondingly high.

Partnership with the Austrian Construction Guild

Vision Education is delighted by its partnership with the Austrian Construction Guild. Thanks to its ‘LearnMatch Business’ language-learning tool, it is now offering specialist German vocabulary for the construction industry

The construction trade is, without question, one of the most important drivers of the Austrian economy. One of the core points of the Federal Guild of Construction’s mission statement revolves around the transfer of knowledge. As part of further training courses, special attention is paid to teaching German in an industry-specific way.  ‘LearnMatch Business’ is considerably improving and, at the same time, making the communication among employees at the construction industry’s professional association much easier. 

Multilingualism on construction sites? No problem!

The construction industry is indisputably one of the sectors of the country’s economy that are known for their international workforce. According to the monthly figures published by the BUAK (the Construction Workers’ Leave and Severance Fund), in 2019, a total of around 130,000 people were employed by Austrian companies. 37% (about 50,000) of these employees come from countries such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland, or Hungary.

This makes construction sites a place of multilingualism. German is nevertheless considered to be the primary language of communication there. The technical vocabulary offered by LearnMatch Business was created in close collaboration with the Austrian construction industry. It offers the ideal industry-specific solution in this regard. Ultimately it guarantees that work can proceed smoothly. The language that is being learned, German, is taught bilingually with 17 different native languages.

Digital learning to boost both understanding and productivity

Thanks to the partnership WITH the Austrian Construction Guild and Vision Education, employees from an array of countries can receive tailor-made vocabulary and language training in their own native tongue. The ‘LearnMatch’ app’s intuitive and playful user interface enables them to quickly learn basic vocabulary related to everyday life.  But they can also build up specialist vocabulary. 

As the saying goes: if you want to build a tall tower, you need to spend a long time on the foundation. And in this case, the foundation is the language we have in common.
