One of the key objectives is to continue the communication campaign that was started in 2015 with higher intensity. The launch of a common Internet presence was one of the main components of the campaign last year - trainees from the member companies presented their favourite product from their own company with the title "Products Made in Münster". In the future individual communication channels should be more specifically aligned to the target groups that are to be addressed. For example, the trainees within the company should be actively included if the intention is to attract future trainees.
