Attracting and retaining competent employees is an important component of the Würth Group's growth strategy. For this reason, we consider human resource management to be of crucial importance in our strategic Group management. The applicant situation shows us that Würth has an excellent reputation in the labor market as a family business. As such, we work on the principle of demanding, but at the same time promoting, performance. This also means that we offer our staff opportunities for further training and create a work environment in which delivering peak performance is fun.
For us, the development of employees is one of our fundamental future-oriented duties. Education and training is therefore a priority in the Würth Group. A key concern for us is that we teach not only knowledge and expertise, but also promote our employees' social skills and personality development. Components such as work-out activities in the sales force, broadening one’s horizon through international internships at European Würth companies as well as supporting social institutions form an integral part of the training plan at Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, the Würth Group’s parent company.

Würth also offers all employees various programs to train alongside their jobs and to work on personal development. In Germany Akademie Würth has become firmly established, offering management seminars as well as training in personal and social competence across the Group.
Employee motivation is not an empty phrase within the corporate culture of the Würth Group, but clearly visible in many areas. As a performance-oriented company, it is important for us that our employees participate in our success. That is why our remuneration system has a strong performance-related component, according to which employees receive annual premiums based on economic success. We also have an effective system of incentives in place that we review regularly.
The Würth Group also takes responsibility for making a decisive contribution to the quality of life of its employees. This includes offers for health promotion, cultural events and our own museums. We also support employees in combining family life with work. For instance, parents can take advantage of part-time regulations or models for working from home.
