      Number of employees up 8.1% to 16,545

      In order to exploit the opportunities our market offers, Krones invests heavily not only in training and employee development, but also in new employees. The company further expanded its workforce in 2018, especially in our customers’ markets abroad. The company employed 16,545 people worldwide at the end of 2018, which is 1,246 employees or 8.1% more than in the previous year. In Germany, the number employed went up by 521 to 10,887. The workforce outside Germany expanded by 725 to 5,658 people. The share of employees outside Germany rose from 32.2% to 34.2% at the end of 2018.


      Half of the workforce outside of Germany is now employed in emerging markets. The company plans to continue rapid growth in such markets, where Krones has for years generated more than 50% of consolidated revenue. In the reporting period, Krones added 360 new employees in emerging regions, for an increase of 14.5% to 2,848 people.

      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.
