In 2017 (as of 31.12.2017), VAUDE had 472 permanent employees with unlimited contracts. This refers to employees who are neither hired as part of an apprenticeship or internship, nor as seasonally limited temporary workers, nor have an employment contract limited in time for a material reason. Of these employees, 319 are women and 153 are men. 257 work full-time, 215 part-time. This corresponds to a full-time equivalent of 365.37.

The majority are permanent employees

At VAUDE, the majority of employees have permanent contracts. No freelance or contract workers are used for essential company activities. Throughout the entire period of 2017, 13 people were employed as subcontract workers. In general, we look for opportunities to employ these individuals permanently after successful collaborations; this was achieved in two cases in 2017. There are no significant seasonal fluctuations in personnel at VAUDE.
