People and Leaders in Industry 4.0
The previous part of our series focused on key competences to develop with employees. Do
employees actually perceive that as an investment in their own future, or does it just mean more
pressure from the employer? What is the leader’s role in that?
The aim of education and
wisdom is to help a human see
their way in life clearly, to walk
it safely while remembering the
past, knowing the present, and
foreseeing the future.

programmes see a participant who joins
in only because the superior ordered
them to attend a programme of personal
development. What impact does it have on
an employee to attend a course without
Proper leaders know which kind of
development to choose for their employees
and why. They give clear instructions on
what they expect employees to learn. They
can also explain what improvements they
expect after the development programme.
They know how the employees will make
use of newly acquired skills in the future.
They can define the benefits at work of
the employees and in the company. They
relate the personal development to the
job and business aims, and can make
clear connections and logic. If employees
understand the target of their development,
they will easily identify the added value for
themselves as well. They will see it as an
investment in their own future.
What does FINIDR understand as the
“investment in people”?
Our priorities involve continuous
improvements in job conditions for
our employees. In addition to their
personal development, we emphasize
prevention in health care. We offer our
employees a programme to enhance
the quality of their lives, including the
help of a physiotherapist, an expert in
stress management, specialized exercise
programmes, healthy choices in our
canteen, and sports days for families with
children. The investments in our people are
aimed at the stabilisation of “Finidrians”.
Maryla Adamčíková, HR Manager at
FINIDR, and her team see to the leaders
and their work with employees focusing on
the support of the general strategy of their
enterprise. I asked her about her opinion
How does FINIDR invest in the
development of your people?
Our orders are all customized so Finidrians
face a range of challenges on a daily
basis. They continuously develop their
polygraphic expertise. We enjoy sharing
our experience and attending conferences,
and do so quite often. We have coaches
and mentors who help our people develop
and improve. However, the cornerstone
is our FINIDR Academy and refined
adaptation process for new employees.
They allow the newcomers in our company
to learn and understand polygraphics and
our company culture.
Do your employees realize that personal
development is an investment equally
positive for the company and for
themselves too? Finidrians appreciate
education within the production being
immediately implemented. They attend
language classes and communicate with
visitors to the printing house. They are
motivated when they can join a team of
experienced internal lecturers and coaches.
All of that means making their jobs more
enjoyable. I am happy they understand their
personal development is beneficial for both
the parties. It has helped us be a successful
enterprise for twenty-five years already.
