The aim of our HR policy is to ensure the best possible match between human resources and the optimal achievement of the company’s objectives, in order to achieve the group’s main concern: the satisfaction of our customers.
To achieve this, we encourage the commitment and fulfilment of all our employees and promote creativity and openness.
To achieve this, we have set up high-performance tools at all sites: digitalisation of annual appraisal interviews, support for internal mobility, innovative systems for tutoring and the transfer of knowledge and skills, integration paths for new employees, etc.
Aware of the importance of the cohesion of our teams, we have also developed specific training actions (management, recognition at work, etc.) and built dedicated tools such as the Manager’s Guide in order to continuously develop our managerial performance.
Finally, we are also concerned about the quality of the social climate and human relations within all our establishments and we are committed to maintaining a frank and constructive dialogue with everyone.

Plastic, yes but … A responsible player, in line with the circular economy roadmap: ecodesign, collection and recycling channels (airpop® products are 100% recyclable, either by shredding and reintegrating them into new technical parts or industrial packaging, or by compacting to remake the raw material intended for the manufacture of plastic parts).
In application of the law of 5 September 2018, specified by a decree of 8 January 2019, on gender equality in the workplace, Knauf Industries has calculated the index intended to measure the wage gap between women and men.
