Responsibility for Our Employees
Attracting and retaining highly qualified and motivated employees is one of the keys to success for the entire software industry. This particularly applies to companies such as the Nemetschek Group, as the market on which we operate is characterized by a high pace of innovation. As in other industries, the general shortage of skilled workers poses a challenge. We engage heavily in areas such as of attracting and retaining employees, education and training and health management. For further details, see our CSR report.
Diversity is a key part of our companywide corporate culture. The individual cultures within our group of companies are very different, and this individuality is an important driver for the company’s innovative strength. Nevertheless, we are currently looking into a groupwide strategy and approach for Diversity Management.
Customers & Society
We form close, long-term customer relationships and in-depth cooperation with universities. We involve our customers in product development at an early stage - at Vectorworks for example, 70% of new features in each product release are based on specific customer requirements. Measures designed to contribute to product quality and customer satisfaction include joint development projects, customer panels and product previews, as well as beta testing and workshops. This creates the best solutions, for both our customers and society. At the same time, we build bridges with society through our social commitments.
Social commitments are very important to us as a group and to our brands individually. The Corporate Citizenship projects across the Nemetschek Group are as wide-ranging as our group itself, showcasing the different cultures of the brands. Many brands for example regularly donate to various non-profit organizations, are involved in charity runs and grant additional paid vacation to their employees to allow them to engage in voluntary work. Some other examples are:
