- Staff Management
Our staff management strategy looks to the long term with the intention to reconcile the goals of human resource management, the needs of employees and those of the business community. In addition to material and immaterial values, social skills are also emphasised.
- Training and Education
The improvement of the qualification and the development of our employees’ skills are major goals, because highly qualified young professionals are key factors of the sustained, long-term success of the agta record Group.
Staff development at the agta record Group is needs-driven, with employees being promoted within the framework of their work programs.
"The trainees of today are the experts of tomorrow." This is the motto the agta record Group applies to the training of its apprentices, which has been going strong for over 40 years. Currently, 13 apprentices are being trained as professional business people, production mechanics and electronic specialists of the future.
- Health Management, Workplace Safety and Fire Protection
For us, maintaining the health of our employees is important. We provide employees with a work environment that enhances their long-term health and performance. As part of our health management program, we have established a number of protective measures in workplace safety and fire security.
For the agta record Group, the customer is at the heart of all our activities. We anticipate and respond to the needs of our customers by providing innovative products and technologies of the best value and highest quality.
- Social Responsibility
Our actions are intended to benefit the interests of all stakeholders. We take social responsibility seriously in order to make an important contribution to social stability.
For a significant number of years, the agta record Group has been supporting a range of social institutions in the Zurich Oberland region, e.g. the Palme Foundation in Pfäffikon, where people with disabilities have been employed since 1963. The agta record Group is awarding assembly contracts to this institution amounting to several hundred thousand Swiss Francs per annum.
Despite the global orientation of the range of suppliers to ensure the long-term international competitiveness of the Company, the agta record Group is proud of the fact that it is sourcing from more than 100 companies in the region. Every year, orders for several million Swiss francs are awarded to local companies.
- The Fehraltorf Municipality
In 1988, the former “AG für Türautomation” moved its headquarters to the municipality of Fehraltorf. All four Swiss legal entities of the agta record Group are based in Fehraltorf. As a group, they are one of the largest tax payers in the municipality.
