Teaching each other
At SiccaDania, we are proud of all our experts and their willingness to share their expertise with all their colleagues.
SD Academy was established last year in 2019 as a tool to provide our employees with process knowledge about SiccaDania’s extensive product portfolio. These webinars are held by internal as well as external experts share their knowledge and expertise within their area. The Academy trainings are delivered by subject-matter experts who bring practical insights from real-world projects and/or on-site experience.
The SiccaDania team is an expanding team, with employees around the world. With more than 400 employees located in nine countries – Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Poland, Singapore, China, Brazil & New Zealand – we have a global reach and global work environment. With a team located across the world, these academies are a way of bringing our employees closer together and provide them with information about the other aspects of SiccaDania.
“The goal is to help our employees become better workers and to equip them with the skills they need to manage themselves, their projects and their teams,” says Mie Uagboe HR & Marketing Director. By training our employees in different fields outside of their own expertise, they gain a better understanding and insight into the process they are responsible for and the entire processing setup.
SD Academy is education by our employees for our employees. We value our young, newly educated employees as much as the seasoned pioneers that have started our company. This mix brings us innovative, new and fresh ideas that makes SiccaDania able to design, engineer and deliver top of the line, energy efficient process technology for the food, dairy, starch and protein industries. We believe that through our SD Academy, we can exchange knowledge across both age and distance.
It is important for us to understand what our employees need and find a solution that can help them.
