We pay a lot of attention to the development of our employees. We closely monitor individual career paths and constantly look for opportunities for their further improvement.
Henry Ford allegedly once said: “The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay".
We believe that employee development, education and efficiency are the cornerstones of effective management. This promotes engagement and employee satisfaction and leads to higher productivity.
Each year, more than 95% of the employees participate in at least one external educational programme. We averaged 50 hours of overall training per employee per year. Our strong on-boarding and mentoring programme smooths the transition and represents the first step in an employee’s lifecycle.
Connecting with our values and culture provides a strong base upon which we can build with individualized training and development programmes. Through development and succession planning we cultivate healthy and strong leadership.
Our managers are ambitious, result-driven and people-oriented individuals who seek straightforward feedback from their team during the annual interviews. With regular surveys (e.g. job satisfaction surveys, corporate communication surveys) we gain a comprehensive insight into the teams and this helps managers and their teams to grow both personally and professionally.
More than 88% of our employees would recommend our information flow system in which our managers are the main source of information. We nurture transparency in many forms, most commonly through regular meetings, intranet articles and internal newsletters.
We listen to good ideas
All ideas are important, even small ones as they can quickly become important, perhaps even crucial, with an input from other sources. Therefore, it is important for the idea to be written down, seen and commented on by as many members of staff as possible. With our own “idea app” we systematically process every idea submitted and, at the end of the year, reward the best ones.
We promote a healthy lifestyle. Employees get subsidized fitness centre membership and we reward any participation in amateur sports competitions (running, hiking, cycling, skiing, etc.).
We believe a healthy lifestyle improves not only physical but also psychological well-being. We emphasize the importance of both at our annual team-building meetings, which include an enjoyable blend of educational and recreational activities. Connecting with our co-workers is a vital part of our success.
