We conduct regular surveys among our employees to obtain their feedback. The aim of these surveys is not only to measure employee satisfaction, but also to find out where our employees see our strengths and weaknesses. Our aim is to continuously improve ourselves. Based on the results of the surveys, we continuously implement change measures both centrally and locally or individually. This way, we want to make Xella a better and even more attractive company, while at the same time increasing the satisfaction of our employees.
Human resources development
Xella attaches great importance to human resources development, as it helps our company meet today’s and tomorrow’s requirements. Superiors conduct regular dialogs with their employees in which they jointly derive personal development goals. Xella supports the implementation of the measures through internal and external analog and digital offerings. An internal employee platform offers numerous e-learning options for flexible and digital further training.

The main focus of the annual junior staff days is placed on the exchange between apprentices as well as on interdisciplinary cooperation, team building and special workshops on topics such as occupational health and safety.
