Through our membership in the employers' association of the chemical industry, we enjoy all the advantages of a very progressive collective agreement.

In addition to annual vacation and Christmas bonuses, there is a collective pension plan with extensive employer subsidies as part of deferred compensation. Furthermore, a large number of instruments are available to be able to react to the challenges of demographic development.
