Through values such as teamwork and appreciation
We attach great importance to a challenging and agreeable working environment which is productive and also fun at the same time. To achieve this, we offer our employees a high degree of individual responsibility, collegiality and equality of opportunity. Central values such as teamwork, entrepreneurial spirit, commitment and constant improvement are fundamental to our daily work. Any problems our employees may have are also recognised and tackled at an early stage. We solve conflicts which may arise together.
Our workforce is second to nothing as a matter of principle. This is vital so that we can achieve outstanding performance through our employees and our strong corporate structure which make us a successful global concern producing globally leading products.
With our employees and customers
Our success is based on open and co-operative collaboration with both our customers and our employees. The daily work routine at SAS is characterised by teamwork and projects in which our staff work together in changing cross-departmental teams. This style of working requires open communication and therefore demands and encourages mutual respect, loyalty and respectful interrelations.
Respectful interaction with our employees is the norm for us. We always take our employees' ideas and suggestions for improvement very seriously. This means that suggestions and improvements can be handed in at any time to any area (regardless of whether it involves a workplace or work processes); they are all examined and receive the greatest possible consideration. We are always open for new things; we approach necessary changes positively and with passion and we are always ready to listen to other opinions and improvements.
Interrelations at SAS are characterised by mutual trust and respect, collegiality, appreciation and professionalism – all this forms a strong foundation for the successful development of our company.
Through freedom, transparency and individual responsibility
For SAS it is most important that its employees are accorded a large degree of freedom and that they are left with the greatest possible amount of individual responsibility. For innovations, ideas and good products cannot be developed and realised under pressure. At the same time, responsibility does not end within the department but often carries over across national boundaries.
In addition, we also have transparent structures which promote the ability to make quick decisions and make individual successes clearly visible. Our flat hierarchies therefore contribute to our employees being able to implement their knowledge and skills and be involved in many topics simultaneously. For this, the assumption of responsibility is an essential factor for SAS.
Furthermore, it is of great importance to us that employees are always informed and involved; amongst other things, there is an Internet portal available which permits direct contact to responsible colleagues on the one hand and provides general reports and tips on the other. SAS may consist of many different people, but ultimately we are just one big team.
For our staff, customers and society
It is of great importance for SAS that our customers and also society and not least our employees profit from our growth. To this end, we do business long-term, sustainably and responsibly and create lasting value by providing good and attractive jobs and handle the environment and resources with care.
Qualified and motivated employees represent our most important resource. SAS can only master the future with them. Not to communicate with our employees would mean encouraging motivation problems, unused potential, inner resignation, a bad working atmosphere or rising fluctuation. Efficient and successful business is not possible with dissatisfied employees. That's why employee satisfaction and motivation are essential aspects for SAS. For this reason, we engage in serious conversations about development possibilities and take care of every single employee in order to guarantee satisfaction and motivation. Ultimately, every employee should be proud of being a part of SAS – that is our aim.
