Work, family and leisure

Why you will find a good balance with us

As a family-owned company now in the hands of the fourth generation, we understand the importance of the right balance between work, family and leisure. We expect performance, passion and a high level of commitment, but as a KOSTAL employee you are always part of a big family in which values like fairness, integrity and down-to-earthness are very important.

In addition to the attractive extras included in your individual contract, we offer a whole range of opportunities designed to help you achieve the right work-life balance. These range from company parties and anniversary celebrations to teambuilding activities, be it singing in the company choir or participating in company sports clubs (including a group of keen cyclists). Regular international football tournaments help to build our team spirit while encouraging global networking. There are also informal gatherings (known as a 'Stammtisch') for different groups (students, trainees, expats etc.) to enable people to make friends within the KOSTAL family.

Your family will feel at home with us too, because our three biggest German locations are situated in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia: a region with something for everyone, from the recreational area of the Sauerland to the Ruhrgebiet, the first region to be designated a European Capital of Culture.

As well as discovering the local area, your family can even see how and where you work. KOSTAL organises Technology for Kids days where your children can visit the company and find out what you, and we, get up to!

Good performance is rewarded at KOSTAL, because here fairness runs in the family.

KOSTAL offers a variety of working hours models, including flexitime. This makes it easier for you to balance work and personal life.
