Success is based on employees
Steklarna Hrastnik is a company that has achieved a large turnaround in operation in recent years. In the last 9 years, the company has been transformed to such an extent that now we are already setting the bases for the future so-called digital transformation of the company.
The basis of (each) business success is necessarily focusing on the employees. The fact is that in the area of employment as well, the only constant is change. And no matter what changes companies and the society in general go through, the first rule and the true basis are always excellent care for and relationship with the team building the future. At all levels.
Regardless of the changes ahead of us and planned by us, it seems extremely important to us that the employees are informed and included in all events and plans, as this is the only way to make them feel respected, motivated and part of the success. We can only face the daily challenges of the present time and the global competition by having competent and qualified employees. Therefore, we constantly invest in knowledge and development. That Steklarna Hrastnik takes this seriously is proven by the indicators such as ramified communication network, care for constant development and training, mentorship processes, cooperation with educational institutions, as many as 18 measures within the Family Friendly Company certificate, the company's own sports society, preventive and training programmes, awarding of innovation, constant investments in ergonomics and health of employees, improvement of work conditions, promotion possibility, and constant investments in growth and development.
In the last year, there has been a chronic lack of workers in production and expert technical staff at all levels on the labour market. Consequently, we have been intensively building not only on the recognisability of Steklarna Hrastnik as a desired employer, but primarily on satisfied employees, opening of opportunities for young people and professions of the future, and social responsibility in all possible forms and ways. We wish to encourage spontaneous and constant learning of the existing and future employees, and thus also their personal and professional growth. We thus extend our attention beyond the company itself, to job seekers, cooperation with schools and young people in general, and of course the local community.
We are aware that the internal culture cannot simply be prescribed. We are aware that open communication, respect for values and raising of the company brand are part of a long process. At the level of the company, we constantly endeavour for improvement of all processes and ways, and simultaneously emphasise the responsibility of each individual. Steklarna Hrastnik, a company with almost 160 years of tradition which constantly invests in state-of-the-art technology and development, awards innovation, encourages self-initiative and sends top products made of brilliantly clear glass to the market, does not only wish for a digital company of the future. Our goal is satisfied employees, clean environment for our children, preservation of tradition, sustainable development and social responsibility in all nuances.
We adjust. We search. We live. The story of Steklarna Hrastnik.
