Employees need impact
Our employees are the driving force behind our success. We are striving for a diverse workforce with equal opportunities for each and every employee. The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, partners and customers is of ongoing, critical importance, and we endeavor to reduce the number of accidents or incidents worldwide to zero. We care about the professional development of our employees whether they work in our boardroom or at one of our factories. We believe it’s important that everyone – no matter their role within the company – benefits from our value-based approach to learning and development and the investments we make in their continuous development. Social engagement with local stakeholders is an important part of sustainable development in the communities where we are active. This is because we are interdependent with our stakeholders and rely on their contribution to our success.

We started rolling out our sustainability strategy across the company in fall 2020. It is essential to get all employees on board and engage them in sustainability. To do this we organized kick-off meetings with important internal stakeholder groups which provided valuable insights regarding potential opportunities and challenges. The last Beckers Employee Engagement Survey indicated that our employees would like more opportunities to develop. We started with the foundation of development: getting regular feedback. With this we are establishing a strong feedback culture through frequent one-on-one Check-In Conversations between every employee and their manager. Establishing a strong feedback culture at Beckers

“The simplest way to boost development is ongoing feedback, to learn about your own strengths and possible blind spots, and to match it with your self reflection.“

Judith Jungmann – Chief Human Resources Officer
