Our three material topics regarding employee matters are “employee satisfaction”, “health and safety” and “diversity”.
Krones develops and manufactures capital goods that are technologically highly complex – for an intensely competitive market whose demands are constantly changing. The market is currently burdened by a weak global economy. To meet our ambitious long-term growth targets, we have made effective human resources policy a major priority. To accomplish what we have set out to do, we need a workforce that is up to the challenge. Krones’ human resources strategy aims to maintain consistently high levels of competence, motivation, and qualification among employees.
The Krones Group’s human resources strategy aims to maintain consistently high levels of competence, motivation, and qualification among employees. From our perspective, that requires three essential elements: recruiting the right people, gaining the loyalty of high performers and high potentials, and providing sustainable, purposeful training and development opportunities.

Health and Safety
Within the Krones Group, two departments are responsible for the health and safety of our employees: Occupational Safety Management and Occupational Health Management. Our aim is to promote the health of Krones employees and thus their ability to perform their work, to prevent work hazards, and to keep the number of work-related accidents as low as possible. The underlying strategies rely heavily on prevention. We must be proactive in identifying potential risks and hazards so that we can develop and implement effective countermeasures.

Fairness and mutual respect are among the core values that we not only live by within the group but also want to convey with pride to outside world. For this reason, we address the topic in very clear terms in our mission statement, which applies across the group and is available to the public on our corporate website.
We are a multinational corporation in which a diversity of cultures, languages, and ways of life come together on equal footing. We are fair and forthright in our interactions, accept responsibility, and make critical decisions. Honesty and transparency inform all of our actions. We are interested in the thoughts and opinions of our employees and partners and are willing to learn from others.
