Our People

Meaningful and giving meaning

Our employees represent the most valuable resource within the company. Not only because they actively contribute to the corporate success through their work, but also because their creativity, team spirit and ambition are also involved. Our Store Makers’ jobs should not just be a “nine to five” affair. Instead, their work should give them pleasure and a sense of purpose.

Life-long learning is a real chance

Today we are not just classic furniture manufacturers, but offer as it were furniture design, conceptual consultancy and project management and even General Contracting. Our range of services has expanded considerably. Our Project Managers in particular master countless fascinating tasks every day, in order to realise successful stores for our customers.

 

For this reason, in 2022 we started the internal project Management Academy – a tailor-made range of further training courses for our project managers worldwide. The training programme based on own experience runs over several years and is enriched with expert knowledge, the latest techniques and plenty of opportunities for exchange.

True heroes from our ranks

We are familiar with heroes from the cinema screen. Heroes have supernatural powers, can lift cars and rescue entire cities. Heroes are fast, strong and untiring.

 

However, life’s true heroes are sometimes hard to recognize, because they are usually people who achieve remarkable things but nonetheless remain behind the scenes. There are true heroes amongst us: Store Makers who work on technical solutions to keep our digital connection functioning. Store Makers who carry out their professional activities with above-average commitment and effort for successful experience worlds.

 

During 2022 we presented awards to the "True Heroes" for the second time – thereby expressing our great appreciation for those colleagues who achieve remarkable things in challenging times.

Participation and helping to shape the future in the Umdasch Group

As a company we aim to create spaces in which people can develop, where they can be encouraged and challenged, and where they can contribute their wide-ranging ideas.

And so during 2020 the Umdasch Group introduced the Sustainability Prize for the first time. All employees of the Umdasch Group were able to submit their suggestions for environmental improvements. A total of 139 submissions from 18 countries were received!

 

Research work is already going ahead on the realisation of the winning idea, a solution for saving CO2 in concrete. The numerous other suggestions are also being taken into consideration, as it were. Therefore the Sustainability Team of the Umdasch Group will also award prizes to further ideas during the course of 2022 and will initiate their implementation.

 

Because numerous small measures will also have a major effect when added together.
