TRUMPF seeks to engage with political decision makers and interest groups. For example, our managers as well as our Managing Board are actively involved in study groups, networks and associations, helping to develop future subjects such as the digital transformation of the manufacturing industry. In numerous local, national and international committees, we are working to further understand the needs of our sector and to improve the exchange of ideas between business and politics.
No society operates in a vacuum: In particular our role as a family company means we need to play our part in society: This underpins our belief that companies need to take responsibility for our system of shared values and actively put it into practice. This creative drive is reflected in both internal and external relations at our company. We have defined a global, uniform code of conduct for all of our employees and take part in a wide variety of sociopolitical and academic projects and initiatives. We plan for the long term and are actively involved in shaping the conditions within which our company operates.
Networks and committees
We advocate our business positions within memberships of interest groups and so are actively involved in shaping sociopolitical, economic and scientific conditions. We encourage our employees to build networks and to become involved in professional associations or study groups for the long term.
Our involvement in social projects is guided by the particular social needs in the regions where TRUMPF is active. We explicitly encourage our employees to engage at a social level and create an environment in which employees can engage personally. Regionally, employees of our subsidiaries apply themselves to the needs of their location. Furthermore, TRUMPF works in partnership with organisations for people with disabilities and with other social institutions.
In this way, TRUMPF takes responsibility in and for society
Since 2017 TRUMPF has supported the initiative JOBLINGE to help with the integration of young asylum seekers. Under the heading "JOBLINGE meets TRUMPF – together for diversity", the company offers a three-day practical training course. During various modules, the young people get to know TRUMPF and find out useful information on the work culture in Germany. The young people also receive training on how to apply for jobs. Numerous employees support the project by participating in the individual modules.
We make sure that we observe national and international rules and regulations. TRUMPF works hard to ensure that the same values are expressed throughout the group and that employees behave in an exemplary manner. With this in mind, TRUMPF has introduced a global compliance program and adopted a code of conduct. We specify specific behaviours that we want to encourage and seek to make employees more sensitive to problematic behaviour.
Disaster and crisis response
We provide help wherever TRUMPF sites or employees are affected by disasters. For instance, we support regional aid organisations by donating money, by providing employees to help with disaster recovery and by supplying free devices and tools.
Donations and sponsoring
TRUMPF places great value on (financially) supporting meaningful projects and institutions in society. Donations and sponsorships are therefore important measures for us. We provide support for relevant specialist and future subjects that are closely linked to our company business and are in line with our vision and values.
