Family-owned Company + Market Leader
We all pitch in to ensure that everyone gets ahead.
We call ourselves a modern, family-owned company. A major reason for doing so is to make clear that we place great value on family-type structures. In other words, treating each other with trust and respect is the foundation of our company.
Each and every employee is important to us – both as a professional and as an individual. Accordingly, we provide our employees with individualised support to guide them along their path.
In filling new positions, we do not only pay attention to professional qualifications. We find it just important that the candidate's personality is a good match. Can the employee identify with what we do? Does he or she want to make a difference in the company and help to shape the future of D+H? Does he or she stand for respectful interaction with others? This is vital to our effort to preserve the company’s values.
The company is now in the second generation of family ownership. At D+H, all roads still lead to Ammersbek. This is also where the owners, who are also the members of the board, have their offices. This results in fast, efficient decision-making. All employees can communicate directly with all levels of management.
Recognising and promoting talents.
"Feedback is the breakfast of champions" is a proverb that we live by. Particularly as a family-owned company, we take a great interest in promoting talent in our own ranks. Therefore, we invest a great deal of time in constructive face-to-face meetings.
Each employee can help shape the company and its future, making it into his or her personal project. Our talent management ensures that our staff continues developing on a secure and well-structured course. For this achievement, we received the coveted "Deutscher Bildungspreis" (German Educational Award) in 2015. From a field of 30 competitors, the jury found our concept the best. At D+H, the focus is on people.
