FIVE DECADES OF SUCCESSFUL PROJECT WORK
As Drees & Sommer celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020, we will be looking back on five successful decades and countless successful projects. Instead of holding an expensive and exclusive anniversary celebration for people outside the company, we will live according to our sustainable attitude and take this opportunity to give something back to the people and society. Over 50 weeks of the year, all Drees & Sommer employees will undertake initiatives that will help across all our company locations.
Our Philosophy: Eight Statements To Sum Things Up
Many companies have a corporate philosophy. Often it is a series of sentences that sound good but say little, printed in a brochure only to end up gathering dust. By contrast, our philosophy consists of eight short statements that express what we achieve, the way we think, how we work together, and what sets us apart. Everyone who joins us is given a personal ‘statement card’ to which the employee’s experiences can gradually be added.
Drees & Sommer Leitbild - ALLES, WAS UNS AUSMACHT
VALUE GUARANTEED evidences our achievements.
The following statements express how we realize our objectives:
SUCCESS WITH INTEGRITY - Upholding the highest ethical standards.
GOOD IDEAS – NO LIMITS - Giving our employees adequate freedom and flexibility.
LEADING THE WAY - Assuming a leadership role in the marketplace.
INDEPENDENT TOGETHER - Retaining our partnership-based company structure.
PASSION FOR PERFORMANCE - Taking pride in achieving success with our clients.
GLOBALLY LOCALshows where we provide our services.
INNOVATION FOR THE FUTURE shows how we look ahead to tomorrow.
Each statement has two dimensions: what it means for our clients and what it means for our employees.
The Key is Our Spirit For Success
The Drees & Sommer team works enthusiastically and passionately to ensure the success of our clients’ projects. We assume a lot of responsibility, show great commitment, and all pull together. This is the only way to guarantee success – and enjoy our work. In the Drees & Sommer Group, there is no contradiction in this.
Teams of specialists in different areas, towns, cities and countries, from very different cultural backgrounds and speaking different languages, all working together. Individuality and different personal strengths are required from the team members. But it is at least as important that they all work with their colleagues in a constructive way and as equals in order to ensure their joint success. This is the only way in which small teams can grow into networks on a regional, transregional and international level – and ultimately the extensive global Drees & Sommer network.
We enjoy our work, the success of the team and that of our clients. This is why we at Drees & Sommer provide mutual support for each other. Experienced colleagues give lectures at the Drees & Sommer Academy and share their knowledge with new people, or they demonstrate it for them through their everyday work. We attach great importance to a positive working atmosphere, fairness, and openness. Celebrating success with our colleagues and taking part in sports together in our leisure time – that is what is different about Drees & Sommer. It is the way we work. We call it Spirit for Success.

Within the Drees & Sommer Group, partnership can be experienced in the corporate structure, the way management and staff interact with each other regardless of their different levels of experience, and – above all – the way we deal with people outside the company. We see ourselves as working in partnership with the client, and believe this is a crucial factor in the success of the Drees & Sommer Group.
This partnership model is exemplified by our partners. As managing partners they lead the Drees & Sommer-Group. In this role they are independent entrepreneurs with responsibility for the Group.
