- In-house crèche

Each of our employees in Europe and worldwide – with all the individual freedoms that we offer – is a real team player for teamwork and networked thinking are an important part of our corporate culture. As a rule, our teams are small and flexibly organised and focus directly on the requirements of our customers. They are set up like "companies within a company" and therefore are also responsible for arranging their own internal work time models, for example.
At Technoform, variety is the order of the day. One of the programmes that we have set up is an international exchange programme which is open to employees' children between the ages of 13 and 17 as well as trainees and young employees between the ages of 18 and 23. They have the opportunity to learn about life and working at Technoform at one of our global sites and to gain exciting experience in the process. Our international training programme gives young employees from other countries in which Technoform operates the opportunity to take part in a multi-year training programme at our head office in Kassel in order to get in perfect shape for a successful future career.
