Diversity and Equal Opportunities
55% of employees are between 30 and 49 years of age
The long average length of service with the company is also reflected in the age structure of our workforce. In 2014, as in the previous year, 55% of our employees were between 30 and 49 years of age. 10% were younger than 30 and 34% were older than 50. In this context, we pay special attention to Group-wide training and development measures for young employees as well as to long-term succession management. In order to ensure continuity in positions that are critical for Wienerberger’s success, we defined key positions for which succession plans are to be prepared in all business units in 2014. At the same time, we identified internal talents and high-potential employees, who are to be gradually prepared for succession to key positions through targeted training measures over the coming years. Through this process, we are ensuring that critical key positions can be filled with the right people at the right time and in line with our corporate culture.
