Corporate Social Responsibility

As a company we are committed to comply with social responsibility, not only by creating jobs. With our voluntary accession to the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative), we undertake to comply with the code of conduct for social and environmental standards. We face up to this commitment with conviction and support several projects and organizations over many years. As a family-owned company with deep local roots, we are engaged also in local projects, particularly in the context of education and supporting young professionals.

"Looking ahead, do business and deal fairly with employees, take responsibility for the society and the environment – these are the basics and our understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). CSR is defined as a system "... that the company serves as a voluntary basis to integrate social and environmental interests in their business operations..."(Text Source: Grünbuch Europäische Rahmenbedingungen für die Soziale Verantwortung der Unternehmen)

Our social engagement

Our particular engagement applies to the Friends’ association of vocational schools, nurseries, children's hospices and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. Additionally we are working with local suppliers and service providers to strengthen the region as a location of interest. Furthermore we use free capacity of regional correctional facilities and day care for people with disabilities in our production process.

Social Responsibility starts within the own company

When companies assume social responsibility, this also applies to their employee politics. To combine family and work, to promote diversity and provide a chance for young and older people - that will benefit society and also the own company.

Therefore we offer in our company:

  • Flexible working models, part-time and home office - jobs that promote the reconciliation of work and family
  • The integration of foreign employees
  • Handicapped accessible workplaces
  • Equal opportunities for men and women in the context of pay, advancement and growth opportunities in the profession

Overall, we maintain a respectful interaction and have included it as a core element in our management guidelines. Our employees are obliged within the scope of the Code of Conduct to combat corruption and economic crime.

Fair and respectful interaction

Promoting a fair and pleasant working environment, our employees receive benefits such as vouchers, staff discount, payment of additional bonuses and professional training courses. Every employee has the possibility to participate in regular internal innovation competitions or to use the employee suggestion system.
