BALANCE WORK AND FAMILY LIFE
In the family-run company HORSCH the satisfaction of the employees (1,800 in January 2019) is a matter of personal importance. There are different possibilities to organise the working hours as flexible as possible to balance work and family life. A close contact to the employees is very important for HORSCH. In case of problems the company assists the employees and together they look for a solution.
FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS AND MORE
Putting trust in the employees and motivating them to perform efficiently is one of HORSCH’s first priorities. The employees benefit from flexible working hours and further education and advanced training opportunities. Open communication with the colleagues and the superiors as well as fairness when dealing with each other are important values of the company. This to a great extent contributes to an excellent working atmosphere and to employee and colleague satisfaction.
HORSCH is active on an international level. A large part of the machines is produced for export. Of course, there are HORSCH sites abroad, partly even with own production plants. Thus, it is possible for employees from a lot of departments to achieve cross-cultural competences and to discuss with colleagues from all over the world.
Moreover, HORSCH encourages employees to travel abroad. This is an excellent opportunity for all employees to not only work abroad, but also to get to know other cultures and mentalities and thus to develop on a personal level.
CLOSELY CONNECTED TO FARMING
For several generations the Horsch family has been closely connected to farming. „We are and always have been farmers who focus on the sustainable cultivation of the soil”, the managing directors Michael and Philipp Horsch emphasise. This is why the family runs a large test farm in the Czech Republic to develop new farming systems and test new machines in the field before including them in the range of products.
HIGH-TECH JOBS IN A FUTURE-ORIENTED SECTOR
The next years will bring further challenges for the agricultural sector like the climate change and the constantly increasing world population. We as a manufacturer of agricultural machinery contribute a lot to solve these problems with our innovative technology. We offer high-tech jobs in a future-oriented sector.
For HORSCH, a company pension scheme is a matter of course. In the social sector, too, HORSCH supports its employees. For example, when looking for a short-term care and support offer in case of a crisis the family cannot manage alone.
HEALTH AND FITNESS
But the company also takes care of the health and the fitness of the employees. The „Forest Factory“ that is being built at the moment will not only increase the production capacity at the headquarters in Schwandorf, but will also house sport and fitness rooms. The employees will not only be able to improve their physical fitness and to compensate for the everyday work life, but also to strengthen the social contact with the colleagues.
CHILD CARE PROGRAM FOR THE CHILDREN
HORSCH’s special focus is on the family. HORSCH is the only employer in Eastern Bavaria that offer a holiday child care program for the children of its employees.
BAVARIA’S BEST 50
For already four times HORSCH has been awarded the prize „Bavaria’s Best 50“. This prize is awarded by the Bavarian Ministry of State and honours particularly fast-growing medium-sized companies.
GROSSER PREIS DES MITTELSTANDES
Moreover, in 2010 HORSCH received the „Große Preis des Mittelstandes“ which is one of the most coveted German economic prize for medium-sized companies. In 2018 HORSCH received the award „Successful. Family-friendly.” for its commitment with regard to a family-friendly workplace. The award especially honours the compatibility of family and job.
