155 more employees mean even more great ideas
Hansgrohe SE's continued success is guaranteed by the many creative people it employs, people who spend every day working on innovative bathroom and kitchen solutions – and who inspired millions of customers all over the world again in 2015.
As of 31 December 2015, the Hansgrohe Group employed 3,805 people all over the world, 1,550 of whom work outside Germany. That was 155 more than the previous year. In 2015 the staff turnover rate remained low, at 2.0%. The use of temporary staff, which fluctuated between 200 and 300 people during the last financial year, provided the necessary flexibility. In 2015, as in previous years, Hansgrohe transferred a large number of temporary staff to regular employment.
“Our staff are our most valuable resource.”
“Our business is driven by our employees' unique expertise, experience and ideas”, said Thorsten Klapproth, Chairman of the Executive Board at Hansgrohe. “This is the case whether they work in production, in sales, in product development, in logistics or in management. The 3,805 people who work at Hansgrohe have one thing in common: a love of innovation and a passion for products which offer real added value. Motivated, responsible and committed, the employees have helped to make the company one of the world's leading sanitary manufacturers.”
