“We think it’s fundamentally wrong to view employees as a cost factor”, explains Dr. Christoph Beumer, Chairman and CEO for Beumer. “We can only achieve a high level of customer satisfaction and a sustainable, successful market presence when the whole team is involved in the corporate strategy in the long term. This is what we have been living since the company was founded more than 75 years ago, and it holds true for the future.”
Deloitte considers Beumer´s “Strategy 2013” to be the “Best Practice” for the professional development of a corporate mission statement. Its key message is that the company’s goal is not the short term profit, but the long term success. “That only works with excellently trained and motivated employees”, says Dr. Beumer.
In the past years, Beumer has grown both organically and through acquisitions. Now, the company has over 3000 employees worldwide, generating annual sales of 450 million €. More than 700 are employed at the Beckum office alone.
