In order to live up to our mission and promise every day, the development of a sustainable workforce is a must. We therefore see lifelong learning as an essential part of our corporate culture. We put people at the centre and create the foundations for a secure and trusting relationship. At Festo, protection of labour, corporate health promotion and respect for valid employee rights form the basis for this. We offer fair and performance-related pay as well as flexible working models to improve work–life balance. This is because a healthy, motivated and efficient workforce is the guarantee for success for every company.  GRI 103-1 3. People at Festo 22 23 Festo SE & Co.
