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?
Respect | Flexibility | Reliability | Competence | Improvement
What we can offer to our employees
The charter of fundamental rights of the European Union gives every employee the right to healthy, safe and dignified working conditions. Occupational health care, accident prevention, occupational safety are therefore of the highest priority within our company.
Doing sports in a community makes more fun. Among our employees there are real professionals who can convey the basics of a good running technique to their colleagues.
Health starts with precuation. On so-called health days our employees can make use of offers regarding healthcare during the regular working time (e.g. screening of the cardiovascular system, back check).
Internally we also have skilled personnel regarding the subjects addiction and severe disabilities.
We have a works council with 9 members.
Suggestion Scheme for Employees
No company can afford to let good ideas die instead of realizing them. Employees know the problems in their work environment very well and sometimes they see things that even their supervisor does not consider. There is a bonus system behind our suggestion scheme.
Holiday + Holiday Pay
Everyone needs recovery from work in order to regenerate their workforce. We offer 30 holidays. It is important that the vacation belongs to the employee – constant availability is not requested. We pay each holiday with 1.5 times the pay.
With the October payroll, employees receive a special company payment, depending on their period of employment.
We offer direct insurance as a company pension plan and therefore pay extra money in addition to the mandatory employer subsidy.
In order to make the journeys between home and work more tolerable, we have a fare subsidy. Tranees are fully refunded their travel expenses to the vocational school using public transport.
We grant extra money for savings contracts as part of the 5ths capital formation law.
In a world of steady acceleration, long-term company loyality is something very special. Loyalty to the company is highly valued and rewarded with cash prizes.
We grant special leave for special events such as weddings, relocation, birth or death in the family.
We provide our employees in the commercial sector with working clothes free of charge through a rental laundry service.
Each employee needs the appraisal interview in order to know how they are perceived and assessed by their supervisor. The annual interview as part of the performance appraisal is mandatory for all supervisors.
Cafeteria + Break Rooms
Having lunch at the workplace on your own should be avoided. Spending breaks with colleagues every now and then is an opportunity to develop socially but also to learn about occupational matters. Our company has numerous break rooms and a cafeteria.
We support gatherings of employees away from the daily work routine with monetary subsidies.
