KACO is a medium-sized company with a strong tradition that is committed to having a presence in Germany. We use the ERA collective agreement negotiated between the IG Metall union and Südwestmetall Baden-Württemberg employers’ association for the metal and electrical industries and we offer all our employees performance-related pay and the opportunities that an international company presents.
A modern, living corporate culture
Trusting, constructive cooperation with the works council is a core component of our value-oriented corporate culture, and it is also expressed in our corporate mission. Our corporate culture is shaped by trust, sustainability, consistency, fairness and transparent dealings with each other. We value teams made up of both young and experienced employees, who work together to actively plot our company's future course and who are prepared to take on responsibility.
Our company's structure is marked by flat hierarchies and short chains of command. Employees are encouraged to make improvement suggestions, which the company suggestion scheme then puts into practice. Annual employee surveys provide important feedback about worker satisfaction and identify potential for improvement.
Intensive employee promotion
Developing and promoting employees is not just an empty phrase with us, it's a living reality. In every department and at every site, KACO relies on excellently trained employees. We use sophisticated training measures and tools like the qualification matrix to nurture our employees' talents and interests.
KACO helps employees find the right work/life balance. Qualified part-time offers, family-friendly working hours, and a smooth transition back to professional life after parental leave are examples of this. Joint leisure activities, such as the annual Heilbronn company run, strengthen team spirit and encourage a positive working environment.
Wide-ranging entry opportunities
Applicants will find interesting entry opportunities at KACO. Training, internships, student placements, bachelor, master or doctor research projects: we have a wide range of offers for pupils and students. We offer graduates from cooperative universities and universities the option of either direct entry or joining a trainee programme. Journeymen, master craftsmen and technicians with professional experience can become specialists and managers at KACO.
We are conscious of our social and societal responsibilities and maintain long-term cooperation with schools and educators. Furthermore, we invest heavily in training young people – as part of our corporate culture and as an important means of ensuring our future competitiveness.
