In addition to technical training, personal development and financial development training programs are also included in the Engineering Development Academy.

As we move towards becoming a global company that grows with its employees and pursues excellence; We designed the ENLiderSensin Leadership Development Program in 2020 in order to lead our business and human resources in the most efficient way, strengthen the leadership skills of our leaders who live our corporate values, and ensure that a common leadership approach is displayed in achieving our business goals and strategies as Norm Holding.

With this application, we offer our employees the opportunity to play an active role in their careers and direct their career development.
We launched “DigiConnect”, an online learning and development program with 4 programs for summer term and long term in 2020 and 2021. With this program; We aimed to provide opportunities for students to gain professional life skills and personal and career development by using digital platforms through project management, experience sharing with Norm Holding Leaders, visionary conversations, online training and department orientations.
