The course for your successful – professional and personal – integration into the company is already set during the first days and weeks after you begin your job. A systematic adjustment to the new job is valued very highly at LEONHARD WEISS. It is important to us, that you receive coaching and support not only on your first day but also continuously afterwards in becoming acquainted with your field of responsibility, the work procedures, your colleagues and the company culture. Your superior is responsible for this process and is supported by a so-called godfather.
In addition to our “godfather-system“ we have developed further instruments which will support your adjustment to your job in a perfect way. Among other things we use an individual adjustment plan. In case specific training measures in connection with your tasks or with the company already arise from this plan, you will be inscribed for the respective seminar or training at our LEONHARD WEISS Academy.
Last but not least all new employees receive all important general information for their start at LEONHARD WEISS by means of our “Introduction day for new employees“. This introduction day also makes it easy to already establish inter-divisional contacts inside the company and facilitate the exchange with each other.
In addition to the conversations concerning everyday business, there is at least one appraisal interview per year. This interview between superior and employee is the most important instrument of the management process. The common aim is to define and agree personal targets for the employee and to control the achievement of these targets. A clear definition of assignments is as important as the personal development of the employee, taking into account his or her strengths and weaknesses. The agreement concerning the performance-related pay of our employees also constitutes an important point of this interview.
The success of these appraisal interviews lies in the joint responsibility of superior and employee. Openness, honesty and mutual trust are the basis necessary to be able to talk about everything which is relevant for a good cooperation.
After the appraisal interview there will be appointments with human resources development, in order to discuss the planned personal developments / measures or even organisational changes and put them into practice.
As employee of LEONHARD WEISS you have access to the wide range of education of our LEONHARD WEISS Academy. Human resources development defines a company intern seminar and education program every year, which is accessible to all employees.
Our skilled employees and managers of the future don’t just appear from nowhere – they are recognised. Together we plan the individual development of our employees focussing on their respective aims. This can be achieved in many different ways: by means of seminars of our academy, in special project teams or by means of extern, additional educational programs. The truth is: the academy supports and accompanies our talents and top performers by means of tailor-made development plans and measures.
We offer perspectives. Our aim: to fill 80 % of our management positions with our own employees. This principle calls for our capacity of innovation and our creativity. For our employees this means that they are offered the opportunity to have an enthralling employment with good future perspectives in our modern family-owned enterprise.
We have been offering a company health management at our LEONHARD WEISS Academy for many years, which is completed by workplace analyses and special sports programs: Pilates, aerobics, nutrition and fitness programs, only to mention several of them. Furthermore, we care very much for the safety of our employees. We want to reach our goal - the “zero accident construction site“ – for all of us.
LEONHARD WEISS is certified as “family friendly company“ since 2013. We continue in making our contribution, in order to make it possible for our employees to conciliate their professional life with their family management. In our company we have already implemented several measures, activities and instruments to give our employees the necessary support to get their job and their family in line and we continuously expand and improve them:
As employee at LEONHARD WEISS you can look forward to our contribution to a successful partnership:
For several years the news magazine FOCUS, together with the web portals XING and kununu, has carried out an evaluation of employers now. These surveys in combination with the evaluation of the results of the platform kununu lead to clear general and sector specific rankings.
LEONHARD WEISS also uses these various evaluation portals, derives many details about the own company by exactly analysing them and puts together a comprehensive opinion trend. The family-owned company even motivates our employees to give their honest evaluation of the family-owned company.
Satisfaction at the job - everybody knows it from his or her own experience - is good, not only for our emotional well-being. Demotivated employees, many institutes have projected this, cost the company enormous sums of money. It is thus really in the interest of LEONHARD WEISS as employer to create a working atmosphere in which our employees feel comfortable.
Is that difficult? “It is certainly not easy“, says Alexander Weiss, Managing Director for personnel and communication. “But in the year 1989 we have developed a mission statement together with our employees, describing our values and our behaviour towards each other. That makes it much easier“!
The family-owned company in Baden-Württemberg definitely does something correctly. Since 2014 LEONHARD WEISS has been ranked as one of the TOP-employers in the construction industry. In the overall ranking, the company with its headquarters in Göppingen/Satteldorf ranks under the top 50 across all industries in Germany in 2020.
On 27th February 2014 the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Heilbronn-Franken awarded LEONHARD WEISS the title “Dualis awarded apprenticing company“ for the first time. Dualis aims at improving the quality of the apprenticeships in companies in the region Heilbronn-Franken. This is put into practice by self-assessment, consulting and certification. The catalogue of Dualis criteria is the basis of this evaluation and improvement.
kununu is a German career platform on the web. Employees from Germany, Austria and Switzerland become company ambassadors on the platform and inform other potentially interested people by means of evaluations and comments about employment relationships, benefits and working atmosphere at their company and about their experience when they applied with their employer.
LEONHARD WEISS was awarded the "Open Company" award by kununu, the seal of quality for a pro-active handling of kununu.com and the "Top Company" award, the seal of quality for employers who receive good evaluations on kununu.com.
