Dow Corning Germany as an employer

Since the establishment of the Wiesbaden site in 1983, it has grown to be one of the largest of Dow Corning’s manufacturing facilities in Europe. Our employees are critical to our success, and we work hard to develop a spirit of cooperation between the company management, employees, and the works council.
 
Our employees benefit from flexible work-time models, from variable bonus payouts, and from a modern personnel management. This includes personnel development processes, a performance improvement process, an open-minded feedback culture, as well as a family-orientated personnel policy, and attractive social benefits.
 
Around 350 people are currently employed at the Wiesbaden site, with more than 20 different nationalities. A forty hour week is just as accepted as the full time (24/7) shift model. We offer apprenticeships in technical professions, for example in chemistry, as well as in business administration. Beyond that, we offer training programs and also collaborate with students working on their diploma or PhD.
 
Our employees think globally because they are members of an international corporate family, and they act locally because they consider themselves as members of the community at the site.

The safety of our employees is our number one priority! We care about our employees, so values like fairness, respect and social responsibility are very important elements of our corporate culture.
 
Many of our employees have been with us for more than 20 years, even more than 30 years. This is a fact we are very proud of.
 
 
Employer Awards
 
Germany Top Employers

Germany's Top Employers (Great Place to Work) - Credible managers, the respectful interaction with each other and staff that is proud of its company - that is what distinguished us as one of the Top 50 Employers in 2006.

Two thirds of the overall result of this competition are based on an employee survey. This is what employees particularly appreciate:

  • Appreciation and development as a person and employee
  • Identification with the employees' individual function and the company
  • High degree of initiative and work satisfaction
  
Career & FamilyBasic Certification 'Career & Family' - The participation in the audit 'Career & Family' is a logical continuation of our efforts towards improving the balance between a career and personal life. Within the scope of the audit we consequently optimize our opportunities regarding work hours, location, organization, leadership skills and service for families.

This basic certification attests a high standard when handling these challenges. With the help of a newly created network we will continuously improve our standards to receive the award again in 3 years.
  
Success Factor Family

Success Factor Family 2005 - Skilled staff is something you don't like to lose. This and our understanding of the integral perspective of an employee have taken us further in the development of family focused measures. Employees and the company both profit from the measures taken towards improving the combination of family and career, which we adapt individually when possible.

The recognition by the Federal Minister for Family Affairs as part of the 'Success Factor Family 2005' competition has confirmed our actions.

  
Certificate of Education

Certificate of Education - It is important to us to offer career perspectives to young people via substantiated apprenticeships. We train industrial business clerks and chemical technicians and in future we will also be more involved in training in mechanical skills and crafts.

Initiative, team spirit and willingness to take on responsibility are promoted and expected within the scope of the apprenticeships.

  
Company of the MonthCompany of the Month - As part of the campaign 'Committed Companies - Impulses for Hessia' the Hessian State Government distinguished and awarded our company as a role model.

Our commitment is mainly to support education and social facilities in the closer area through financial and other donations. We promote the voluntary engagement of our employees and we even sponsor the working time needed for these tasks. State Secretary Dirk Metz commented "Dow Corning takes on responsibility and acts as a good citizen at its Wiesbaden site".
