The well-being of our employees is very important to us. Which is why we apply ourselves so energetically to ensuring the safety of our employees and to making sure that they stay healthy and motivated.
The expertise and dedication of our employees are essential to our business success. That's why we want to create conditions that enable our employees to perform well in a safe environment. This includes a good balance between work and private life, ensuring the health and well-being of our employees and targeted support for diversity in the workforce.
Occupational health and safety
"Every accident is avoidable" – that is one of our basic premises
Every accident at work and every work-related illness is avoidable. We live in a health and safety culture that is predicated on prevention. In emergency situations we ensure a quick and measured reaction.
TRUMPF is committed to innovation, ensuring products of the highest quality. We make the same demands when it comes to our work sites, workplaces and processes, paying particular attention to safety and ergonomics. From the planning phase and beyond, we pay specific attention to state of the art in the region. We actively involve our employees in the design process. We carry out regular risk assessments and implement measures to ensure the highest safety standards.
We want to preempt work-related health risks and sickness early using occupational medical precautions. We pay attention to potential signs of health problems and provide our employees with the necessary support. We also make available healthy lifestyle options.
Managers are responsible for occupational safety and health protection in their section. They lead by example, ensuring that their employees behave in a safety-conscious manner.
Employees help to ensure that good and safe working conditions are maintained at all times, pay attention to safety regulations and endanger neither themselves nor others.
Training and development
Well-trained and highly motivated employees help guarantee our competitiveness and innovative drive. These are cultivated in an environment of continual and self-motivated training and further development. In doing so, we base our approach on the precise needs of our target groups, offering tailor-made development and qualification programmes.
Work and private life
Flexible, customised working times and locations, tasks that involve personal responsibility, fairness, and respect and appreciation when dealing with one another – these aspects all characterise the TRUMPF work environment. This includes site-specific models, which enable flexible, mobile working for our employees, for example. We also ease the burden on parents by providing extensive childcare options.
Diversity and equal opportunity
The symbiosis of young and older people, women and men, people of many nationalities, and personal and professional skills makes us a strong team. We encourage this diversity to promote a richness of ideas and to create an environment that meets the needs of all people. TRUMPF creates integrated workplaces and sees itself as a company that provides opportunities for people with disabilities. The disabilities officer (SBV) works to further the involvement and integration of people with disabilities in the company and to provide advice and support for them. Furthermore, TRUMPF regularly donates phased-out hardware to the charitable IT company AfB, sponsoring two workplaces for people with disabilities.
Responsibility at TRUMPF goes way beyond company limits. Our employees can be involved as multipliers for a specific number of hours every year during work hours. Projects involve educating children and young people, but also include other schemes, such as helping asylum seekers and people with disabilities prepare for the workplace. The change in perspective that occurs is a real win-win situation: on the one hand, employees expand their creativity and receive insights into different ways of working, while on the other hand, the attractive offer increases loyalty to the company.
Cultural programme at TRUMPF
Our extensive cultural programme for employees provides a creative environment for innovations and new perspectives. Fresh impulses from art, literature and music also help to stir up creativity in the working environment. At the same time, events help employees to network and interact with each other more than they necessarily would in their everyday work life.
