Priorities of our human resources management

As a globally operating company, Henkel employs people from over 120 nations in more than 75 countries. Over 80 percent of our employees work outside of Germany. The highly international character and diversity of our company call for a shared vision and actively lived corporate values as elements that unite us worldwide. The foundations are established by the Code of Conduct, containing our binding behavioral rules, including the principle of equality. We assess and promote our employees regardless of their nationality, gender and age/professional experience.

Further key topics for us are talent management, continuous training and further education, and the health of our employees. We want all of our employees to understand the principles of sustainability and to be able to actively contribute to it in day-to-day operations.

In 2012, we were again successfully positioned in the employer rankings of many countries as an attractive company – both for university graduates and for candidates with career experience. The CRF Institute, a research organization in the field of employer certification and employer branding, awarded Henkel first place, naming it Germany’s Top Employers for the third year in a row.
