Krones employs 17,164 people worldwide – 5.3% more than last year
After workforce adjustments in the last few years, Krones’ headcount increased in 2022 for the first time since 2019. The total number of employees grew by 861 or 5.3% to 17,164 – a smaller percentage increase than revenue. This growth is mainly due to the recovery of our international markets. The workforce employed outside Germany thus rose by 8.5%, from 552 to 7,034. In Germany, employee numbers grew by less than the total, with an increase of 309 or 3.1% to 10,130. The international share of the workforce rose in the reporting period to 41.0% (previous year: 39.8%).
Above-average workforce growth in emerging markets
Most of the increase in the international workforce was in emerging economies and in service. The number of employees in emerging markets grew in the reporting year by 326 to 4,459. This meant that 26.0% of the Krones team was employed in emerging economies at the end of the reporting period (previous year: 25.4%).
Customised additional training for staff members and managers
The high qualification of our employees and managers is a decisive factor for the success of Krones. Therefore, the human resource development department is permanently keeping an eye on additional training and support for all employees.
Every employee has individual skills and areas for further skills developments. This is why the human resource development department is concentrating on measures that are customised precisely to the needs of the individual participants. The professional skills as well as the social skills and methodical skills are supported here. Altogether, the offered seminars comprise more than 450 topics. These topics include IT and language courses just as much as special field seminars as well as communications and method training. In addition to external specialists, also our employees carry out training sessions. Having internal knowledge, they can pass on this valuable know-how directly on other colleagues. In addition to the traditional training, we also offer eLearning modules thus providing the option of doing individual trainings without the pressure of time and location.
