Bahlsen as an Employer

Bahlsen is one of the best-known German family companies. Since we were founded in 1889, the company name has stood for reliable, consistent and forward-looking operations, innovative products and profitable growth - both nationally and internationally. Our sustained success is founded on the passion, knowledge and curiosity of our employees. They are the heart of Bahlsen and together we face the challenges of the future - with curiosity, with courage, and support.

Our team spirit: we encourage courage and diversity

From the very beginning our company felt a special responsibility towards its employees. This is reflected in the promotion of diversity in the workforce. For example, as long ago as the early 20th century, Bahlsen encouraged women to take an outstanding position in the company - an absolutely new departure at that time. Diversity was also demonstrated by international expansion at an early stage: in 1960 we already founded our first subsidiaries abroad, in France and Italy.

In accordance with the value we attach to our employees, we invest a great deal in them. A set of guiding principles for management and employees, uniform across the world, ensures that there is a common understanding of how we conceive cooperation, shaping the work, and living our international leadership culture. The last point is especially important, and is determined and supported by our global Bahlsen Leadership Development Programme.

Our preferred direction? Continuing development

Bahlsen's corporate culture is built on an individual's initiative and their willingness to make changes. We encourage employees to take responsibility for their own individual professional and personal development through recognition and trust. Support for young people is also important to us. Every year Bahlsen provides career entry opportunities for apprentices in Germany, international trainees across the world and directly recruited employees in a wide variety of fields at our various sites.
