We offer part-time positions to mothers with school-age children. After maternity leave the job is available again to the employee with a child, if they want it.
TrainingWe give young talent a chance! Trainees, young professionals and people making a change in career are welcome in our company and play a vital role in meeting the demand for qualified personnel.
Equal opportunitiesApproximately half of our workforce has worked in our company for a long time - a figure that speaks for a high "feel good factor". Every employee is aware that discrimination and bullying are not tolerated in our company. We do not tolerate any discrimination against employees on the grounds of gender, race, disability, cultural background, religion, age or sexual orientation.
