Social commitment

Our sustainable concept of social cooperation

Building employee loyalty with foresight: our social commitment begins with our employees

The motor of a company are its employees, who, as the determinative factor in the success of a company, are driven by their motivation, their creativity, their knowledge and their identification with the company. This is where our responsibility begins.

It is our job to protect and promote the health of our employees. After all, a company is only as strong as its most important resource. With sustainable human resource development and through reliable protection at the workplace, we increase the efficiency of our employees and our company. It is also important to preserve and develop existing know-how in the company through measures to promote employee loyalty and through close cooperation between younger and more experienced employees. At KHS, sustainable work also means working in an environmentally conscious manner: we are well aware of our responsibility to the environment - in particular with regard to future generations - every day. The related knowledge is continuously developed at KHS, passed on and consistently integrated into the company's processes.

Employees and their know-how are invaluable to KHS. The goal is to ensure and promote the efficiency of employees through various personnel development measures and effective occupational health and safety.
