One apple a day keeps the doctor away ... we believe in it! Did you know that US-american scientists could proof this old wisdom? Fruits for free - our choice of it will change like the seasons. With this action we want to motivate everyone here to enjoy more healthy eating.

Brandnew: Our sports workshop FIT & ACTIVE

In cooperation with salvea and with support of BARMER we have started a sports workshop for our employees.

Staff Benefit Programme and employer-funded pension

A high evaluation of the staff is an essential part of our company's philosophy. Alberdingk Boley takes care about the people working here. This includes not only the education programme, but also pension provision and meeting individual needs of personnel. 

Employer-funded pension 

The actual political discussion about the pension gap shows how important it is to plan carefully the later individual retirement planning. It is no longer sufficient only to count on the regular pension. With an annual payment into the fund Hamburger Pensionskasse, Alberdingk Boley supports with the employer-funded pension in order to grant an additional pension during retirement.

Benefit Programme for Staff

A further benefit for staff is the Benefit Programme for everybody working here. On basis of our healthiness programme and in combination with corporate discounts we negotiated better conditions for staff with suppliers in the near surrounding. The Benefit Programme includes offers like car rentals, hotels, organic shops, opticians, physiotherapists and further more. 

Safety with system

We want to assure the healthiness of our staff.

A permanent monitoring and a continuous optimization of health- and safety regulations and environmental safety, we carry out with the highest engagement. All our activities are in accordance with the current rules and regulations as well as our voluntary commitment. Furthermore, we clearly define measurable company goals. Quality assurance and economic success, the safety and health protection of our employees, the safety of our plants as well as environmental protection (including the efficient use of energy) are equally valued corporate objectives. They are integrated parts of our business processes and decisions.

We are proud on the certicate seal 'Safe with System' of the Professional Association. It is like a proof for us that we reached our goal of an efficient occupational health and safety system.

Sometimes, also small things lead to a big result. We are never tired of pointing that using the handrail at stairs is a must, in order to avoid accidents with serious consequences. Regular seminars and first aid-courses or fire fighter trainings are offered in-house and helps us to be prepared for such cases.

Work & live your life in balance

We think, a career is possible also with family. That's why we are offering also to young mothers and fathers a big space for individual development. We support in finding the right 'Kindergarten' and are offering parttime jobs. We help to connect private and working life. So that building a family is leading to a brandnew start of life. 

I'm a happy Alberdingker!

Inner strengtheness is real power. But what is power without any motivation? An internal request at our staff which we did by the end of last year, has shown that we are on the right way: more than two third of our staff indicates that they can identify themselves with their job here. Strong 93 per cent would recommend Alberdingk Boley as employers.

Our inner power, a motivated team and our excellent performance so far are like a strong engine for us to take new goals. The good working atmosphere makes us strong to take every handicap also in future! 

And yes, it is true, I'm a happy Alberdingker!
