BLANC & FISCHER FAMILY HOLDING
Sustainability Report 2022

People

We are Family...

AS ITS NAME SUGGESTS, THE BLANC & FISCHER FAMILY HOLDING HAS “FAMILY” AT ITS HEART. VALUES SUCH AS LOYALTY, FAIRNESS, RELIABILITY, AND INTEGRITY ARE FIRMLY ANCHORED IN ITS DNA – JUST AS IT SHOULD BE IN A FAMILY.

As a corporate group, it’s important to keep an eye on the figures, but this can also be done through friendly and respectful interaction with each other – be it with employees, customers, or suppliers.

AS A FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY, WE HAVE A SPECIAL RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS OUR EMPLOYEES AND INVEST A LOT IN A HEALTHY WORKING ENVIRONMENT. IN RETURN, OUR EMPLOYEES ARE ABLE TO DELIVER OUTSTANDING WORK.

Benno Rudolf,
CFO, BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding

FAMILY TIES

The fact that employees feel comfortable in the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding Group companies is not least evident from their loyalty. The average length of service in the corporate groups in Germany is around 18 years, which is far above the industry average. There is also a long-standing workforce at the other locations around the world.

Another special feature is that married couples – and even entire families – work for the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding corporate groups. Like Marko Pandza and Ivana Levacic, a married couple and both working for E.G.O. Elektro-Komponente d.o.o. in Croatia. But that’s not all: they first met and fell in love at work! “The fact that we’re still in the same company 20 years later actually says it all. If the work environment were not so friendly towards couples, we certainly wouldn’t have stuck around for so long, at least not as a couple,” says Marko Pandza.

At B.PRO CZ s.r.o., Frýdek-Místek, Czech Republic, there are also employees who are related. For Zbynek Velart and his mother Barbora Velartova, however, it was pure coincidence that they both ended up in the same company. She had worked in production for a year, and her son joined the company as a designer. It was an easy decision for Zbynek Verlart to take the plunge – thanks to his mother’s positive experiences.

The E.G.O. companies in Oberderdingen have become the professional home for the Kazenmaier family. Dad Udo Kazenmaier works in Controlling, Mom Ulrike Haag-Kazenmaier is part of the thick-film development team (and has been for 40 years already), while son Manuel is completing an integrated dual degree in industrial engineering. Although they don’t see each other very often in their everyday working life, they still talk about work with each other. “We value the employee-driven leadership style at our company. The friendly interaction among staff members makes for a pleasant working atmosphere. Flexible working hours, a canteen, a company physician, and health management are further advantages,” sums up Udo Kazenmaier. The Kazenmaiers were really keen for their son to work towards his degree at E.G.O. – not least due to the excellent reputation of the BLANC & FISCHER Training Academy. “His thorough preparation for application and interview was all worth it when he was accepted,” says the proud father. Since then, the whole family has cycled to work where possible – an important contribution to the environment and everyone’s health – with increased physical fitness to boot.

WE VALUE SUSTAINABLE CORPORATE GOVERNANCE THAT MAKES A FAMILY BUSINESS MORE RESISTANT TO CRISES COMPARED TO LISTED COMPANIES.

EXCELLENT WORKING CONDITIONS

The BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding management board is convinced: A great working environment with many opportunities for professional and personal development is not only appreciated by employees, they also pay their employer back in the form of extra commitment and dedication. This HR policy is considered exceptional outside of the company.

In the “Germany’s Most Active Companies 2019” competition, the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding corporate groups were among the six winners. For the eighth time in a row, the BLANCO-Group in Germany was also named “Top Employer” by the news magazine Focus Business in 2021. As an employer, the E.G.O.-Group scored an impressive 16 awards and accolades within just five years. Every day, over 9,000 employees worldwide are committed to the success of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding and its Group companies at 55 locations in 24 countries.

The family-owned company takes responsibility for each individual. A comprehensive training and further education program, active health management, exemplary occupational safety, and, last but not least, the trust placed in every employee, make the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding Group companies attractive employers around the world.
