Employee Catering

Most of our locations have their own canteen that offer nutritious meals and snacks. At locations without a canteen, there are delivery services that cater for our employees. Fresh fruit is also always available.

Employee Gifts

We like to celebrate our employees’ special occasions. The works council organizes and presents small gifts for events such as weddings or births.

Health Management

We offer a company medical service that provides, for example, preventive medical check-ups, vaccinations and psychological counseling. We also offer a fitness membership through EGYM Wellpass and support several company sports teams. The annual Health Day at our many locations is also a staple of the many services we provide our employees.


30 days of vacation are standard with us. We also grant our employees special leave days for personal occasions such as their own wedding, the birth of a child or moving.


The Emsland Group is an international company. Our workforce is as diverse as our sales regions. Employees of over 30 different nationalities enrich our team and ensure an exciting cultural exchange.

Special Payments / Extra Payments

In addition to attractive, performance-related wage and salary models, we pay our employees fixed special payments. These include a fixed Christmas bonus and vacation allowance, and we cover our employees’ bank account management fees.

Company Parties

We regularly organize staff parties to ensure a good atmosphere. These include annual summer parties, family parties, anniversary celebrations, retiree reunions for former Emsland Group employees and trainee days for a fun get-together at the start of apprenticeships or internships.

Modern Workstations

We provide our employees with state-of-the-art workstations and materials to enable them to work efficiently. This includes not only an ergonomically designed office workstation, but also high-quality IT equipment, customized safety shoes, modern tools and safe work clothing.

Retirement Provision

We work with our employees to ensure their future planning for retirement is accounted for. We offer an attractive company pension scheme, which we subsidize as an employer on a ‘pro rata’ basis, with a fixed annual contribution. We also pay our employees capital-forming benefits that can be used to build up an additional pension.

Further Training Opportunities

To ensure that our employees are fit for the professional challenges of the future, we utilize on a broad program of internal and external opportunities further individual training — because learning is a lifelong process.

Length of Service

Satisfied employees stay — and we are proud of that. It is not uncommon for us to regularly celebrate an employee anniversary of over 30 years, with some employees nearing 50 years.

Family Friendliness

We offer flexible working hours to help you combine family and career. Depending on location and pay scale, the weekly working hours are between 37 and 39 hours. For salaried employees, ‘flexitime’ applies between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm. However, we also offer various working time / part-time models for our commercial employees, depending on availability. In addition, we offer a childcare subsidy, the option of working from home (depending on the area of work) and a working-time account with the option of converting existing credit into time off.

Company Relief Funds

It is a pleasure for us to surprise our employees on special personal occasions or to support them in the event of extraordinary burdens — our company relief funds are used for these purposes. This fund is largely supported by the employer, however all employees make a small monthly contribution as well. For weddings, births or retirements, we present our employees with festive baskets. For hospital stays, long-term incapacity to work or health issues, financial support is provided.  Assistance is also available for costs relating to major dental procedures, visual aids and hearing aids.
