What we can offer you
At ElringKlinger, performance is always rewarded. Apply yourself, and we will acknowledge your commitment. In Germany, depending on the actual location, we offer a monthly salary as well as holiday and Christmas pay. This is based on the applicable collective wage agreements for the metal and electrical engineering industry or on the terms agreed in specific employment contracts. Additionally, the majority of our workforce receives a voluntary bonus in acknowledgement of a strong business performance.
ElringKlinger will also stand by you once you have reached retirement. In Germany, for example, under the Old-Age Provision Act (Altersvermögensgesetz – AvmG) you have the possibility to join various retirement plans. In some cases, we even contribute to the conversion of remuneration components in the context of such schemes. Depending on where you are located, you may also be entitled to an employer-funded company pension.
Financial security and old-age provision are important. We, however, are able to offer you even more. In particular, we place great importance on the aspect of work-life balance. Depending on where you are based, you will be able to choose from a selection of flexible working time models, flexitime schemes and part-time employment programs. We want to give you every opportunity to perform at the highest level. At the same time, however, we realize that everyone needs to unwind. It's about finding the right balance.
You health is of prime concern to us. With this in mind, we have introduced occupational health management at some of our sites. At our corporate headquarters in Dettingen/Erms, for instance, you can buy a health ticket that entitles you to attend various courses, such as cardiovascular training, back exercises, progressive muscle relaxation or Nordic walking. In addition, depending on location, you can join various company sports groups. You will even be given a discount for specific gyms. Our company doctor offers regular vaccinations as protection against flu and other diseases.
Nearly all our company sites include a staff restaurant open during the lunch break. They offer a range of healthy food at fair prices.
ElringKlinger also stands for innovation and creativity. Our policy of Idea Management is aimed at nurturing your creative potential and ensuring that solutions designed to help improve day-to-day operations are implemented accordingly throughout the company. It goes without saying that we will reward you appropriately for your courage to chart new courses. Our employees are encouraged to play an active role when it comes to improving processes and helping to shape our company's fortunes.
Our success is founded on your ideas – HR development at ElringKlinger
ElringKlinger is a corporate think tank and talent hothouse all rolled up in one. We are driven above all by the expertise demonstrated by our employees – and we are keen to acknowledge their contribution. Developing our personnel is of particular importance to us. This begins with annual appraisal meetings as part of which you will draw up a personal development plan together with your supervisor or line manager. The issue of further education is also at the top of our agenda. We can offer you much more than standard training seminars and are committed to addressing your personal strengths and weaknesses.
We demand a high level of expertise but also nurture talent to the same degree.
Targeted HR development – Our high-potential program
Having mastered the first few years as a young professional and tackled challenges head-on, you are now ready to move forward to the next level. Our high-potential program is designed to prepare you for new areas of responsibility by taking a targeted approach. Over the past years it has established itself as a highly successful HR development program within our company.
You will be nominated for this program if your line manager or supervisor is of the opinion that you are equipped with the talent needed to take on a key role in future years. Our top management will subsequently decide on how to proceed.
We place particular importance on the individual development of our employees.
Whether project work, seminars, workshops, informal get-togethers with our Management Board or an open dialog with senior management concerning our corporate strategy and the step-by-step introduction of managerial responsibilities – you can rest assured that you will receive all the preparation needed to thrive in this environment.
Specialist knowledge in your field of expertise is essential, but social skills are equally important. At ElringKlinger, we believe passionately in looking beyond our own company and contributing to the work of non-profit organizations. It is with this in mind that our high-potentials regularly work on projects that take them away from their desks and our production plants. In 2013, for example, they created a "barefoot path" in Dettingen/Erms.
Focusing on people management – Leadership on the move
Appraisal meetings, principles of leadership, managerial effectiveness and team development – aspects that are of key importance particularly to middle management.
We believe that managers can and should evolve and refine their skills continuously. Therefore, "Leadership on the move" is directed at staff members who have held people management responsibilities over an extended period of time. Our aim is to strengthen our managerial staff in this role. This is achieved by means of highly focused networking across the various ElringKlinger sites and at a management level, in addition to extensive personality training and close, effective dialog. You will take part in workshops, receive feedback from the various trainers, work on case studies and discuss specific issues with other members of the group. Here, too, there is a strong emphasis on strengthening your interpersonal skills.
Advanced training for everyone
Becoming a global leader is a challenging task. Remaining a global leader is just as difficult. Therefore, the issue of advanced education and training is of particular importance to us.
ElringKlinger also offers a number of opportunities for administrative and operational staff to broaden their horizons at a personal and professional level. Full- or part-time study and measures aimed at achieving advanced managerial or technical qualifications – we can offer you an extensive range of training and educational programs tailored to your needs. We are confident that this will motivate you to perform at the highest possible level.
