The key to our success: Our employees

Your motivation is the basis for our corporate success

Satisfied and motivated employees are a prerequisite for top performance in any successful company.

We know that at Herrenknecht. That’s why we enable you to assume responsibility at an early stage for complex projects in an international working environment. We appreciate flat hierarchies and support your professional and personal development. Furthermore, we also offer our employees attractive extra benefits.

High-tech and home

Our family-owned company is headquartered in Schwanau. Here in the small village in the Ortenau region of south-west Germany, we develop and manufacture the very best tunnelling technology for international projects. Top technology is part and parcel of our everyday lives, as is nature. After all, the Ortenau region is one of the sunniest in Germany and has some very diverse opportunities in terms of recreation with its scenic vineyards, the regenerative nature of the Black Forest and the nearby Europa-Park. Nestled in the three-border region, we can be easily reached from Freiburg, Karlsruhe and large urban centers in Switzerland (Basel) and France (Strasbourg).

Herrenknecht encourages the professional and personal development of its employees. We offer a training and qualification program comprising basic training courses and individually-tailored further training. This gives us the certainty of employing true pioneers in the respective area of application.

We have subsidiaries and associated companies working in related fields all over the world. Global projects enable our employees to acquire cross-border working experience and develop at international level.

The compatibility of professional and private lives is an important concern for Herrenknecht. After all, top performers need a healthy balance between life and work. With flexible work time distribution, flextime, part-time models and subsidization of kindergartens, personal and professional lives can be perfectly balanced at Herrenknecht.

Within the framework of preventive health care, our colleagues can have free use of gyms, saunas and swimming pools run by selected partners, participate in amateur sports tournaments or be active in company sports programs. A company doctor is also available. Our offer is rounded off by a well-balanced range of food in the canteen at the Schwanau site.

Furthermore, regular employee events take place such as Christmas parties or summer festivals and campaigns (e.g. donating blood, skiing).

Herrenknecht offers attractive terms for employees, e.g. Christmas or anniversary bonuses. And to enable you to plan for the future, we also support our employees in the form of various retirement planning offers. Accordingly, Herrenknecht offers a company pension scheme in the form of employee-financed direct insurance.

A key element of our entrepreneurial philosophy is to also take on social responsibility. The company and Dr.-Ing. E.h. Martin Herrenknecht in his capacity as both a private citizen and as an entrepreneur support a range of people and projects in the fields of sports, culture, social affairs, education and science. With our products, we also contribute to the environmentally friendly mobility of people and goods and the sustainable use of precious natural resources worldwide.
