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 talent of our employees. Therefore, individual advancement and further personal development of professional skills are the focus of 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 developmental meetings. Because we believe that the successful cooperation of a team is the foundation of every success. Therefore, we not only gratefully accept suggestions for improvement and solutions, but also promote them within the framework of company suggestion schemes, also with cash and non-cash prizes. There is no other more rewarding investment than the potential of our employees.
KWS has a presence 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 locally and abroad, and we move in various cultural circles. Those who realise how great the opportunities for personal and professional development are in such an environment are in the right place at KWS.
Motivated employees who successfully apply their personal skills to achieve our company goals are offered lots of possibilities to assume responsibility in an international environment.
Much is said and written about striving for an individual balance between professional and personal 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 working time models
- Family support in the form of childcare allowances
- Progressive work
“The most family-friendly company in southern Lower Saxony” award as well as an on-average higher employee retention rate show that we understand what is required for an individual professional/personal balance.
We need structures for organisational and not hierarchical reasons. They are as flat and efficient as possible. Our doors are open, we see each other and communicate with each other as equals. 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 drive 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 our business success.
The diversity of personal and professional backgrounds, experiences, skills and ideas is a fertile ground for creative initiatives. We actively cooperate with international companies, well-known universities and institutions in more than 70 countries and move 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 generationally 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.
