Employee Satisfaction

The Frauenthal Group is a performance-driven company, so achieving the group’s objectives and safeguarding its success are directly related to the motivation, development and ambition of our managers and staff. The performance and development review is a platform for discussing performance-related expectations and giving and receiving feedback.

One of the Frauenthal Group’s most important objectives is ensuring employee satisfaction. Employee surveys on this issue are carried out regularly by external consultants and the results have been extremely satisfactory. However, in keeping with our motto that the best is the enemy of the good, we do not rest on our laurels. Instead, we look to address any areas where we find room for improvement, which primarily means communication and management conduct. The satisfaction and dedication of our staff are essential for the group’s continued development.

Frauenthal has an outstanding reputation when it comes to human resource management. For instance, SHT has been accredited under the Investors in People (IIP) standard and has obtained state accredited training provider status. The company is also a winner of the Austrian KnewLEDGE prize. All of this underlines the group’s strong focus on personnel development and its commitment to being an attractive employer.

Staff Development

Every group employee who wishes to take their career to the next level will be supported in line with their potential and personal motivation. Our successor planning provides the necessary basis for this. The support we give is tailored to the employee’s personal situation – for instance, many staff members who have recently started families are currently looking to strike a balance between work and family commitments.

In-house training

Our training initiatives enable trainees and apprentices to achieve the status of internal experts. The courses offer an insight into the group’s core day-to-day activities, as well as promoting an entrepreneurial mindset and a strong customer focus. Needs-based training and development programmes also take place at divisional and plant level. These include the SHT Academy, which has been running training courses for staff at all levels of the organisation since autumn 2007, and has made a significant contribution to the company’s strong performance. A number of former trainees and apprentices are now driving the company’s growth, and have embarked on expert or managerial careers with the help of targeted development initiatives.

Career paths and perspectives

The group uses a number of innovative HR development tools to ensure the effective development of our people. These tools play a significant part in the following career paths:

Trainee programme

The trainee programme has been an integral component of our development initiatives for up-and-coming managers. It gives dedicated new recruits the chance to find out more about the group’s wide-ranging operations and gather initial experience in the course of various projects.

Expert career

The expert career path is backed up by systematic career planning. Covering a range of levels from junior through to senior, the responsibilities and requirements for experts are clearly defined, with comprehensive support in the development of specialist and soft skills. Experts are central to the production process, ensuring the long-term success of our products and services, meaning that YOUR development and YOUR standing in the company are particularly important to us.

As a project manager, you will be responsible for initiating projects, putting together your team and bringing the project to a successful conclusion, with a focus on efficiency and customer benefits.

Management career

A managerial position involves assuming responsibility for your employees and your section of the company.
