We aim to offer our around 16,500 employees attractive and fair working conditions and to operate a sustainable personnel policy.
Every employee who works for our company has the right to be treated fairly, politely and respectfully. Discrimination or harassment is not acceptable at any of Dürr’s company sites worldwide. In particular, disadvantage suffered on grounds of a person's gender, religious belief, age or disability is not tolerated. Child labor and forced labor are strictly forbidden. Our employees may join legally constituted employees’ representative organizations without fear of disadvantage. Our activities are also consistent with the Global Compact, in which the United Nations has formulated principles for fair working conditions and responsible business practices.
The production technology market has seen many new trends – from big data and system connectivity through to predictive maintenance. To keep our employees’ level of knowledge up to date, we provide a comprehensive training program. In 2016 the number of training attendances in Germany totaled 10,032. Added to that were over 10,000 online training programs worldwide – mostly in the field of compliance. One of the training formats that reflects Dürr Group’s international character is our corporate training. Employees from different countries come together and learn about best practices e.g. in project management, sales and leadership.
We conduct worldwide employee surveys to identify potential areas for improvement. In our most recent survey, conducted in fall 2016, we once again achieved a high level of participation of almost 80 %. Compared to the 2013 survey, we saw further improvements in almost all areas with most of our scores above the peer average in Germany. The survey also showed that commitment, team spirit and job satisfaction play a key role at the Dürr Group. In addition, many people are proud to work for the company, but participants did indicate their desire for more feedback and personal development opportunities. We will implement improvements and continue to leverage strengths in cooperation with our employees.
