Only people who are genuinely inspired by their jobs can sustain this kind of commitment. So how does OTTO inspire its employees?
It’s basically quite simple: by giving them freedom for their own ideas; having confidence in their abilities and skills; and being willing to entrust them with a high degree of responsibility. OTTO supports and encourages employees to grow, focusing on appreciating each individual. The open corporate culture across country borders is also attractive: employees can interact with their colleagues internationally on the group-wide intranet. Internal events such as Lunch & Learn, Espresso Talks and Network Days promote exchange across all departmental and hierarchical boundaries.
Staff discounts on items from OTTO and many other Otto Group companies such as SportScheck, Manufactum and bonprix, health programmes and a gym, flexible working hours, child-care and an extensive range of services such as dry-cleaning drop-off and car care show that we put our staff centre stage.
