People at KWS
It is important to us that our employees develop their individual potential. That is why we give them the opportunity to promote their own ideas.
Our success is a result of the diverse talents of our employees. Therefore, the individual promotion and further personal development of professional skills are the focus of the human resources management at KWS. In addition to continuous upgrading of expertise through seminars, training sessions and conferences, we focus on relationship-based approaches, such as networking and development meetings. This is because we believe that the successful cooperation of a team is the foundation of each success. Therefore, we do not only gratefully accept suggestions for improvement and solutions, but also promote them within the framework of the company suggestion schemes, also with cash and non-cash prizes. There is no other more rewarding investment than the potential of our employees.
KWS is present in more than 70 countries. Successful work in this context can only be guaranteed if all employees think and act in networks. We work with international companies in our sector, well-known universities and institutions at home and abroad and we operate in various cultural circles. Those who realize how big the opportunities of personal and professional development in such an environment are, are in the right place at KWS.
Motivated employees who successfully contribute their personal skills to achieve our company goals are offered lots of possibilities to take on responsibility in an international environment.
Much is said and written about striving for individual balance between work and private life. Let us show you in a nutshell how important it is to us that you find the perfect balance just for you:
- Flexible and individual work models
- Family support in the form of childcare allowances
- Progressive work
The award “The most family-friendly company in southern Lower Saxony” as well as an on-average higher length of stay of our employees show that we understand what is required for an individual work-life balance.
We need structures for organizational and not for hierarchical reasons. They are as flat and efficient as possible. Our doors are open, we treat each other and communicate with each other eye-to-eye. We all assume our responsibilities from the very beginning and enjoy entrepreneurial freedom. Our common goal? To pursue innovative ideals and forge new paths with courage, willpower and mutual trust.
We inspire our employees. We encourage them to think and act entrepreneurially and to move issues ahead. Flat hierarchies, open doors as well as direct and quick communication make it easy for our employees to reach their goals.
The successes of our teams are based on a mixture of various cultures, disciplines and personal backgrounds. The inclusion of different perspectives, which we actively demand, enriches our work life and is an important factor in the success of our business.
The diversity of personal and professional backgrounds, experiences, skills and ideas is a fertile ground for creative impulses. We actively cooperate with international companies, well-known universities and institutions in more than 70 countries and operate in various cultural circles. This diversity of thinking, ideas and personalities enables us to approach our tasks in an open and creative way.
We have been thinking and acting in generations for more than 160 years. Our objectives are always long term with an eye on the future. Our aim is not short-term success, but sustainable solutions. Because this is the only way to build a basis for trustworthy partnerships with farmers around the world. This attitude is also the foundation for the continuous creation of added value and organic growth.
We strive towards fresh thinking and landmark ideas. We support an entrepreneurial spirit in order to set standards on our market and to develop sustainable solutions for present and future challenges.
