The key to our success does not appear anywhere in our accounts. In fact it is always a company’s employees that are the main factor deter-mining its business results. At ALTANA we have exceptionally highly motivated, committed and qualified staff, who are our true capital. They apply their knowledge of innovative technologies, worldwide markets, technical applications and processes precisely where it is needed.
Now around 5300 people around the world work on the products and services of the ALTANA Group every day. In 2012 every member of staff, on average, generated turnover of about EUR 320,000, which is excel-lent compared to the rest of the industry. Furthermore, the extremely low fluctuation of staff (less than one per cent) indicates the high degree to which our employees identify with the company and with its goals and values.
