Our common approach creates clear and transparent rules for all employees interacting with one another and places great importance on mutual appreciation. Our general principles support dialogue and co-operation between employees and top executives. The basis of our mission statement consists of fairness, respect and trust. In addition, we are convinced that well-trained top executives provide a positive working environment and we therefore recommit ourselves in this regard especially.
Our employees play a decisive role in the overall success of the company. An essential part of our corporate culture is professional and personal development. We strive to match this to the needs of each individual. Our team spirit, flat hierarchies and large scope for organizing work have inspired our employees throughout the 160 years of the company's history; these qualities are largely responsible for the fact that a group listed on the stock market has been the result of several small, family-owned companies, which has preserved thinking across generations.
Create potential – Allow for opportunities
Lifelong learning: Our employees can complete extra-occupational degree programs or advanced training. We support them in the process both financially as well as organizationally by, for example, allowing flexible working hours.
We want to be a strong, responsible employer who meets the needs of our (potential) employees and who continues to develop; we support this through in-house advanced training measures and through various career change and promotion programs.
