Long-term employee retention is our goal. We offer dedicated employees a wide range of interesting work and a diverse array of opportunities for development. Performance-based compensation and support for further education and training are a given. As reflected in our corporate culture, KISTERS is, at heart, a family business that values every single employee.
Vocational advancement, training and development
To ensure our employees can meet the challenges of their daily work routine, we strive to improve their hard and soft skills by offering training opportunities internally as well as externally at career development events. We meet with every single employee at regular intervals to discuss in detail their development and career advancement options.
Flexible, family-friendly working times and vacation days
Thanks to flexible working time models, our employees can find the right balance between work and private life. The option to take parental leave or work part-time is of course available to every employee. It also easy for employees to carry over their remaining vacation days to the next year.
Career model & compensation
The KISTERS career model helps ensure fair compensation for all employees. The model not only defines base salaries, but also allows for performance-based profit sharing.
Corporate culture: A family company in every regard
KISTERS is a family company, which not only refers to the Kisters family, but also symbolizes the philosophy and management style of the company. Direct dialog, fairness, a cooperative management style and mutual respect are central elements of our corporate culture.
- At KISTERS, the management style of “open doors” and short decision paths are a matter of course. The executive board and management staff are always available for questions and there are no barriers to initiating discussions.
- KISTERS is a member of the Fair Company Initiative for fair working conditions and a new ethic in the workplace. One great aspect of this initiative is our voluntary commitment to work for fair working conditions – especially for junior staff, interns, temporary workers and trainees.
- KISTERS is generally concerned with health and well-being of its employees. For example, we offer ergonomic office equipment, occupational health care, health information days in every office and support for campaigns and sporting events such as company runs. And we also provide fresh and healthy low-priced meals at “Casino”, the in-house cafeteria at our headquarters in Aachen. Incidentally: Coffee, tea and mineral water are free of charge.
- The family atmosphere at the company is not only evident in our day-to-day work, but also at company celebrations such as summer parties and Christmas parties and other events where families are invited to attend. And the “Casino” cafeteria in Aachen offers a popular meeting place for communication, relaxation and social interaction.
