Our employees are our most important resource for the successful development of SÜDPACK. We can only achieve our goals if we have motivated employees who identify with SÜDPACK and share our vision. Our deep commitment to the regions where our sites are located and to our employees is demonstrated, among other things, by the regional involvement of the company group.
Particularly in the context of the rural areas where our sites are located, it is important to be an attractive employer to maintain our competitive edge when recruiting qualified professionals. Topics such as job security, employee qualifications, training and professional development, occupational and health protection as well as employee satisfaction are of central importance to us. We are particularly proud of the fact that we have never had to apply for shorttime work or give notice of forced redundancies in the history of the company.
Despite growth with increasing globalization, internationalization and digitization, we want to maintain our family business culture. In this regard, we call upon ourselves to openly communicate with and appreciate all employees and apply this in our daily interaction.
Many social issues that are linked to global supply chains, such as child or forced labour, are regulated by law in Germany and Europe. Consequently, such topics only play a minor role in our sustainability reporting.
