      Number of employees up 7.9% worldwide to 18,513

      As a result of the continuing very positive business performance, Krones increased the workforce in the reporting year by 1,349 employees or 7.9% to 18,513. Once again, the number of employees grew at a lower rate than revenue (up 12.2%). This growth in the workforce is mainly due to the ongoing positive development of our international markets. The number of people employed outside Germany thus rose by 11.7%, or 825 employees to 7,859. It should be noted that 126 employees were added in North America as a result of the acquisition of US-based Ampco Pumps. In Germany, employee numbers grew by less than the total, with an increase of 524 or 5.2% to 10,654. The international share of the workforce went up in the reporting period to 42.5% (previous year: 41.0%).



      Above-average workforce growth in emerging and developing markets

      Much of the increase in the international workforce was in emerging and developing economies and in service. The number of employees in these regions grew in the reporting year by 568 of 12.7% to 5,027. The largest increase (by 253) was in the Eastern Europe region. There, Krones added to the workforce at the Czech IT subsidiary Konplan and at the Hungarian production site in Debrecen. At the end of the reporting period, 27.2% of the Krones team was employed in these regions (previous year: 26.0%).

      Customised additional training for staff members and managers

      The high qualification of our employees and managers is a decisive factor for the success of Krones. Therefore, the human resource development department is permanently keeping an eye on additional training and support for all employees. 

      Every employee has individual skills and areas for further skills developments. This is why  the human resource development department is concentrating on measures that are customised precisely to the needs of the individual participants. The professional skills as well as the social skills and methodical skills are supported here. Altogether, the offered seminars comprise more than 450 topics. These topics include IT and language courses just as much as special field seminars as well as communications and method training. In addition to external specialists, also our employees carry out training sessions. Having internal knowledge, they can pass on this valuable know-how directly on other colleagues. In addition to the traditional training, we also offer eLearning modules thus providing the option of doing individual trainings without the pressure of time and location.
