Employee development – young employee with a book

Our employee development as a pillar of success

In order to be able to meet the challenges of the ever-changing business world in the long term, we encourage our employees to take part in internal and external training programmes. The range of topics stretches from general management or corporate issues and training courses on value-oriented leadership to operative topics such as process optimisation and effectiveness. In this context, our employees benefit mainly from our collaboration with the Swiss Institute for Management Development (IMD) in Lausanne.

We are a company that never stops learning. We determine the respective need for training each year in a targeted way and support our employees – including financially – to take part in training courses, such as in business management, and professional and master-level business qualifications. Thanks to our international connections, we have the opportunity to exchange best practice within the Group and thus also achieve personal and professional development. In line with our company philosophy, the remuneration of our employees is performance-oriented. Our employees participate in the success of our company. In addition, we offer our employees many voluntary benefits, including a company pension, Christmas bonus, occupational accident insurance, a company restaurant and bistro, ergonomics at work and flu vaccinations.
