Bayka as an Employer

Company overview

Our Values

How do you manage to stay over 100 years successful as a company? How do you overcome economic fluctuations and changes within the market? How does Bayka succeed in keeping their employees in the long-term and in making them company enthusiasts? By creating a common value guideline, which guides communication inwards and outwards. As a medium-sized company with a long tradition we have always been acting in a value-based manner. But in times of technological change it was important to put them into words and to pass them on to new colleagues and trainees.

Who are we? According to which values do we act?
