As an employee of the Reifenhäuser Group, you are part of the world's largest extrusion network. 1,500 employees work together at Reifenhäuser on the leading technologies for plastics extrusion and ensure that projects go smoothly at our customers' locations around the world.
In over 100 years of company history, our values have become clearly defined. They unite the companies of the group, provide orientation in everything we do, and are the basis of our success.
Openness & Communication
In accordance with the value we place on ownership, we encourage our employees to assume responsibility in the company. Every employee has the opportunity to actively get involved in the company and to prove themselves. In turn: Our employees are expected to think independently, make decisions accordingly, and to question the status quo. For us, this is the prerequisite for a long-term working relationship that meets the expectations of both parties.
Interested in adding an MBA to your qualifications, completing that master qualification after all, or pursuing a degree while on the job? The success of the Reifenhäuser Group is based above all on the knowledge base and excellent qualifications of our employees in all areas of the company. With this in mind, we support you in planning and realizing your further development – on a professional and personal level. We regularly conduct feedback interviews with our employees to discuss your expectations and our own. Together, we determine what would be the ideal professional development program.
Balancing the requirements of a career and a family is not always easy. Reifenhäuser recognizes this challenge. We support our employees.
Flexible working schedules
School and preschool schedules are outside your control. Working schedules, on the other hand, offer a certain degree of flexibility. Thanks to flex-time and part-time models, our employees are able to adapt to the requirements of their personal lives and flexibly respond day by day.
It depends on the individual case which childcare is the right one. In cooperation with the AWO parents service (German Workers’ Welfare Association) we help our employees in the selection of a suitable childcare model and in their financial plannings.
Parent-child working area
The day nanny cancels the childcare arrangement at short notice, the day-care center is on strike, classes in school are cancelled, and there are no grandparents in sight that could help out. For such emergency cases we have set up a parent-child office with two fully equipped workstations. In addition, the room offers everything needed for the care of children up to the age of twelve years – for instance, toys, a baby changing table, and a microwave oven.
24-hours emergency service
In cooperation with the AWO parents service we offer an emergency service to our employees who don’t work in an office. In the event that normal childcare arrangements fall through, an emergency service will be organized by the AWO parents service within 24 hours.
We are much interested in the long-term health of our employees. Therefore, Reifenhäuser promotes a sports programme that offers physical activity and preventive health care. In cooperation with a gym, our employees are offered the opportunity to participate at no charge in courses, use the fitness equipment and the spa area. In addition, information days are organized once a month to provide our employees with information around the issues of health and fitness.
