Onboarding, performance reviews and development interviews 

We want your arrival in the world of Drees & Sommer to be pleasant and successful so that you will quickly feel part of the team. To ensure that this is the case, we support you from the very beginning by providing you with all the important information and building your personal Drees & Sommer network.

In addition to your manager, you will have a mentor at your side. This person works in the same team or department and will support you during your induction, give you an insight into organisational issues and pass on the Drees & Sommer corporate culture. In addition, you will receive a digital handbook that will guide you interactively, in addition to the professional and personal induction.

There is no substitute for direct communication

Therefore we have the following interviews:

  • As part of the 100-day or interim evaluation, you discuss your impressions with your manager and receive initial feedback.
  • During the annual appraisal interview, you and your manager reflect on the past twelve months. You discuss your past and future goals, take on new challenges and explore development opportunities.
  •  We offer an additional consultation with your HR manager to professionals with four or more years of professional experience.
  • We identify employees with special potential and develop them in a targeted manner using a potential analysis.


Keep on Learning

No matter what position you hold and how much experience you have already gained: You can always learn something new. The development of our employees follows this guideline. Everyone is called upon to tackle the problem - whether at the respective sites, at trade fairs, in projects, by sharing knowledge on the intranet or through cooperation with universities and associations.

The Drees & Sommer Academy is a key element in the development of our human resources and combines different forms of learning to offer you the best possible learning experience.

External lecturers and colleagues provide you with in-depth knowledge. For our international employees, we offer customised courses in English or in the desired national language.

Work is important to you, but it is not everything in life? We see it the same way. That's why we created DRESOmore - a programme of different offers that can evolve and change - just like the wishes and goals of the people who work at Drees & Sommer. Currently, we offer our employees a variety of offers around the themes of "sport and health", "colleagues", and "compensation and benefits".

  • Sport and health: people who exercise regularly find it easier to stay fit and healthy. That's why we reward people who practice sport on a permanent and regular basis in a club or fitness studio with a health bonus.
  • The Drees & Sommer Group is expanding its recruitment base with the "Employees Recruit Employees" programme. As our colleagues are familiar with our work requirements and our corporate culture, they know whether a person will fit in.
