Diversity in a world that's worth living in

VAUDE benefits from diversity in the workforce. We are convinced of this and promote diversity at VAUDE. This is expressed, for example, by our ratio of women in management at 43 %. (Diversity in a world that's worth living in).

Health promotion as a matter of course

Our organic canteen, our climbing wall, our occupational health and safety management program “Auszeit”, our ergonomic working environments and much more contribute to the health of our employees. (Health promotion as a matter of course).

Occupational health and safety

Avoiding workplace accidents and occupational illnesses – this is imperative at VAUDE. Therefore we invest in good employee training and safe technologies. With the help of our streamlined yet effective internal occupational safety organization we ensure that risks are recognized early and that we find solutions to challenges and take (preventative) measures.
