The core element of our company culture

Respectful conduct

These days, many companies put forward an entire code of values. Our company culture can be outlined by just one value. It is characterised by a fundamental attitude which is best captured by the word ‘respect’.

We have respect for people who work with us and for us. We respect their work, commitment and loyalty. And we also have respect for their individual differences, which is paired with a willingness to encourage them and further their training. This is also part of our responsibility as an employer. In our work environment, mutual respect lays the foundation for an openness that facilitates fair cooperation. It allows creative blocks to be overcome, both in our minds and within our organisation. We share our expertise and cooperate with one another – from the company management to each individual employee. We do not perceive mistakes as failure, but as opportunity. They shine a light on our weaknesses and often point to new paths leading to innovation and improvement.

Trust is the most powerful currency

Our management is based on long-term focus, and that also applies to dealing with people. Those who have committed to constant change through innovation with the aim of staying abreast of the market require a good compass and commitment to their values. The respect we show our employees creates a positive sentiment, which in turn establishes mutual trust - trust in the potential of employees and trust in the leadership skills of management in equal measure. The success of this attitude is reflected in the fact that staff turnover is extremely low. More than 50% of employees have been with us for 25 or even 40 years – positive proof of a solid company culture and a good working atmosphere.
