To us, our employees are the motor of our success
This is special at the Uelzena Group: The work has many facets; every day brings something new, other products, other challenges. We also offer safe jobs and job perspectives. We support our employees in their development.
Uelzena is a growing enterprise which is slowly but surely approaching the 700 employees mark. Our Group comprises four modern production sites; we are highly specialized and our global customers are demanding. The Uelzena Group is playing in the Premier League of the food production industry. This versatility offers our employees interesting development perspectives and ensures diversified work.
However, we are not a large corporation. This is apparent when you work with us. Most of our employees at the various sites know each other personally; the supervisors are always open to suggestions and know the circumstances of their co-workers. The Uelzena Group combines the best of two worlds: The opportunities of a large corporation and the personal environment of a family-owned company.
Support and challenges
We offer a lot to our employees. The Uelzena Group creates safe and long-term jobs; in general we pay standard wages or compensation according to the current collective agreement. Added to that there are social benefits that vary depending on the site and the area of work. We also invest in our employees; we support their further education and qualification efforts. This is because they are the motor for our success.
We expect that our employees resume responsibility, perform at their best and work independently. There are no lone fighters among the staff. Our products are always the result of good teamwork. To us, a good and respectful working environment is important. Our employees should feel at home in the Uelzena Group for a long time.
The State of Lower Saxony Supports our Further Training
Our colleagues’ daily working life is changing – and with it the requirements. English skills are becoming increasingly important for an international company like ours. Which is why, in 2020, we organised Business Communication training for nearly 30 employees at Uelzena eG via the funding programme “WiN – Weiterbildung in Niedersachsen” (Further training in Lower Saxony).
The courses consist of 66 units in total, each of 45 minutes. At the start of 2020 the courses began with in-person teaching, and when the coronavirus pandemic hit they were converted to a digital format in cooperation with the English Incorporated language school in Lüneberg. This means employees can continue to practise their English skills once a week.
The language training is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF). The state of Lower Saxony allocates these funds to help the skilled worker situation for small and medium-sized businesses in the region.
