Social affairs

Our company lives from committed and skilled employees who feel loyalty towards Bischof + Klein and love coming to work.

We require well trained employees with extensive know-how and a wide range of skills in diverse processes, working techniques and areas of law. Some of these skills are part of the training, while others are only learnt "on the job". We therefore attach great value to binding employees to the company for as long as possible, in combination with a high level of satisfaction. We are therefore increasing our attractiveness as an employer continuously and in all areas.

SUCCESSFULLY RECRUITING, DEVELOPING AND RETAINING EMPLOYEES

The length of employment at Bischof + Klein is considerably higher than the average throughout Germany. There are good reasons for this. We establish a strong relationship with all of our employees – even before a contract is signed. Our "Make a positive contribution to your life" campaign, including corporate health management and advanced training, shows which positive aspects make our company attractive as a trainer and employer.

  • B+K is a secure, forward-thinking employer.
  • B+K offers good opportunities for advancement.
  • B+K is a down-to-earth family-owned company.
  • B+K presents employees with challenging tasks.

 

HIGH-QUALITY TRAINING – FOR THE VERY BEST PROSPECTS

Awards at state level confirm the high quality of training at B+K. Amongst other measures, we ensure this by means of seconded employees and numerous specialist trainers. Above average examination results demonstrate the success of our commitment. Due to the demographic trend, the number of suitable applicants is constantly on the decline. We are meeting this challenge with our employer brand campaign and further measures.
 
 
GETTING AHEAD THROUGH ADVANCED TRAINING AND KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE
 
B+K offers good chances of being hired, and advanced training starts after the initial training, because life-long learning is a firm element of the B+K corporate philosophy. To accomplish this, we provide a varied range of training courses for company-wide know-how transfer. Our employees also have access to many other training and qualification measures.  

Corporate health management not only offers specific measures, actions and stimuli that are aimed at maintaining health. It also strengthens fundamental health consciousness.

The work-life balance is supported by  flexible part-time work, flexitime and home office agreement, "B+K flexitime model without core times", flexible working time regulations for relatives who act as carers.
 
MEETING AND ASSUMING SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
 
At its German locations, B+K has close ties to the town of Lengerich and the community of Konzell. This is clearly expressed through commitment in various areas. This includes cash donations for social projects and charitable associations as well as non-material and voluntary commitment at local level. This gives us the opportunity to encounter local partners from politics, industry and society at various events and to come into contact with the plants' neighbours.
 
INDIVIDUAL AND VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT
 
Our employees undertake voluntary commitments in various areas such as the local fire brigades, the Federal Agency for Technical Relief, the Red Cross, working with young people, training young athletes or upholding traditions, for instance. B+K welcomes and supports this commitment, because motivated employees with varied interests make a positive difference to our company and to our society.
